Graduation Rate

Loading...
33%
BELOW AVERAGE

Burlington College graduation rate is below the national average.

33% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Burlington College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

It's a shame what they did to this place, somebody needs to go to jail behind this nonsense. I didn't have the money but I liked the vibe at the school, a real hippie environment, damn U Vermont, y'all sold OUT!

This was actually the worst college in the country, and somehow managed to charge it's students over $20,000. Only 24% of students graduated, but all were left with large loans. The president was literally "ran out" by students. Burlington didn't have an administration, just one person with many titles. I had a feeling this school would close, and I was correct.

Film Production Major - B.F.A As a film student, I appreciate Burlington College's ability to be flexible and work with my personal needs and ambitions. Before attending BC, I was going to school in Boston for film production. I quickly realized that the school had little interest in me as an individual and more interest in shoe-horning me into their predetermined curriculum path and, of course, my money. I could tell that Burlington College was different when I walked in the door. All of my film teachers know that I am pursuing the role of Producer and have been very happy to morph class projects into what will be most beneficial for me. They have been understanding when a paying video gig comes up and I have to miss a class to seize a real-world learning opportunity.Beyond the film program, I have been able to explore other courses which have enriched my view on filmmaking and also my personal life. During my first semester I took a course in Shamanism which opened my eyes to large aspects of myself that I had never previously explored. This led to an additional workshop on Holotropic Breathing for which I received school credit and an amazing personal experience.I expected to come to Burlington College to hone my video craft. This I have done and continue to do. What I did not expect was to learn so much about myself in the midst of a powerful community of friends and teachers. Each day at Burlington College is an exploration not only of your major, but also of yourself and how you fit into the larger community.

WARNING! I miss my old school incredibly! The new Burlington College isn't anything like the old, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! 99% of the teachers and faculty we had have been fired by the new admin, Steve Orge, and the entire staff is condescending and arrogant and the students no longer have a voice! No longer student-centered. No longer about learning! I miss the old school and miss having class together! The entire philosophy has changed, and boy do I miss my old classmates and miss our dear loving staff that was so dedicated and authentic! I am glad I was able to experience it before it turned into a nightmarish hell full of dictators and fear-based placating bullies concerned solely about maintaining an alluring image!
