Graduation Rate

Loading...
79%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Clark University graduation rate is above the national average.

79% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Clark University 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 consider 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 picture. 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 educational institutions.

As of the time of this writing, I am a first year at Clark in my second semester, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. The earliest classes are at 9am rather than 8, people are friendly, and the RA's just programs often. If I had to say one bad thing, it's that the first few weeks are super humid because New England weather, so that's not fun
