Graduation Rate

Loading...
82%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Centre College graduation rate is above the national average.

82% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Centre 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator 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.

Best college ever! If you want your kids to have doors open for them, experience unimaginable opportunities through travel and academic challenges then this is the place to send them. Don't let the tuition figure prevent you from applying! You never know what might come your way. We're 2+ years into our experience at Centre College. The difference it has made for my socially and academically inclined daughter is outstanding. I can't say enough good things about this institution.

Overall Rating:

In 1973 I went to Centre from New Orleans and graduated with a BA in English in 1977. True, Centre is not as well-known as it deserves to be, but people who are knowledgeable about small liberal arts colleges, usually know it and respect it. I have never felt that some potential employers' lack of knowledge about Centre has hurt my ability to get a job. While there are some drawbacks to a small college compared to larger schools, Centre's community is very special, and this sense of community continues on years after graduation among alumni. At Centre I felt appreciated for my individuality and recognized as a unique person. This was a gift to me. As both an alum and also a university teacher, I can attest to how well Centre is envisioned and managed by its board, president, staff, and faculty: its liberal arts mission, strategic planning, and implementation are seamlessly linked, producing an impressive unity of thought and action. It's a dynamic institution.
