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.

Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Overall Rating:

They expect for you to figure your way out to graduation, no one helps you or guide you, you try to seek advancement And they won't see unless you bring your Dregree audit printed, and guess what!!! Try finding a lab where you can print it. So you are out of luck, it feels like they do this so you can take classes you don't need so you wasted your money. smh! Just found out that I took 2 classes I didn't have to take thanks to advicement last year, classes that made me screwup my GPA, cool wasted my money, which it was not government money it was cash money I payed out of my packet because I don't get financial aid, which is rare I used to get at least $600 dollars in my previews school but in here I get none, wierd!!! maybe they are not doing their job at making sure my financial aid is getting process, any how I tried to contact the registration office as I am out of the country and the only class I was able to take this semester was drop by mistake ans guess what? No one pick up the stupid phone or answer emails. GOOD JOBBBB!!! SHOULD HAVE LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO TOLD ME THIS WAS A SHITWHOLE

Overall Rating:

The staff at Baruch are unwilling to help anyone. This goes to the financial aid office,TAP office even the library. The professors are great and the learning curriculum is amazing. However, it difficult to prosper in an environment where the people who are suppose to help you are the most bitter people you will ever meet who hates their jobs. Baruch is a business school so you can assume that many of the departments are money hungry.

Must say my experience at this school so far hasn't been pleasant. This school is run like a business they don't care about their students. They just want your money I guess that only makes sense since it is called "baruch". I tried to get some answers about my financial aid and instead got yelled at, I still don't know why and why the lady was so rude. The orientation was a joke it was over 300 students so I definitely wasn't helped. I sat through their whole orientation process just to end up with a class I didn't have to take. All I can say is this school is gonna drain you of your health and money. The teachers here also are the worst.

Bureaucracy kills it everytime. I fill out all of my paperwork/online info, have all my classes set up, ready to go... Then the office is asks, "Did you do your residency form?" New form, btw, at this point in time. By the time I get the form done to bring it back to the office, it's too late to attend classes that semester. I decided to just go somewhere else, to another CUNY school.

Overall Rating:

Unfortunately, the staff of Baruch College are some of the most incompetent people I have ever delt with in my entire life. The amount of mistakes made by the college over the time of my enrollment there are far beyond my wildest imagination. In particular, the academic advisement office. The people who work in this office are by far the worst Ive experienced. Extremely unhelpful in every possible way. I think they get off on finding ways to avoid actually answering your question. It seems like a game they play, how many ways can we avoid helping students in one conversation. On top of that they have advised me to take classes that I did not need to take and I had to figure that out on my own time and remake my own schedule my self. ***A TIP: DO NOT go to Peter for advisement. Most unhelpful.*** My experience at this college has been extremely negative. I would suggest not going to this school if you would like any help in making it to the level of graduation. If you enjoy a D.I.Y college experience maybe this would be a exciting endeavor. Overall I can not wait to never have to step foot in that place ever again.
