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 educational institutions.

Since my past review they have gotten back to me, I've called and gotten to know some of the staff. They are the nicest and most down to level people I've delt with. Answered every question I had and then some more I hadn't even thought of, they even offered to personally grade my portfolio and tell me how strong it is and what I should add or fix. I can't put into words how badly I want to go here! I certainly hope they accept me. Thanks again to Rene, Eric, and everyone I've talked to!My past review: I really really want to go here for a degree in transportation design (hoping to pursue automotive design), but they haven't gotten back to me with any information (requested 3 weeks ago). I also would like a statistic for how many students on average are accepted.
