    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    51%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    CUNY Hunter College graduation rate is below the national average.

    51% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to CUNY Hunter 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 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 schools.

      I taught in Hunter College for over 16 years, and i have to say that the academic excellence is brilliant in this school. Most students are well mannered, and we have successful graduating doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and other specialists leaving the school. Very highly recommended college for undergraduate and graduate studies.

      Oh man, the administrative services... I was emailed and told that if I could not attend the upcoming semester, to just click a button and my admission would be deferred to the following semester. So I clicked the button, and thought I was good. Oh no, I go down to the school prior to the start of the following semester and was sent in circles from office to office, then finally decided to speak to a STUDENT (or just recently graduated kid) in the office. I told him what happened and he asked, "Did you readmit?" I asked, "What is this 'readmit'? I've never even heard of this before". He said, "Yeah, sorry, you had to do that". No one told me this. So I go to readmit, and by this time it was too late for that semester. Now I had to REAPPLY for the FOLLOWING semester the next year. I just went somewhere else.Bureaucracy and red tape kills it, everytime.

      Overall Rating:

      Check the professor reviews in your department first, before coming here for certain majors. Geography is very good, but urban studies less so. Student body is good in general, however the campus, food and actual degree requirements suck. The degree requirements have multiple levels of requirement and the internship requirement for some majors are ridiculous. It's okay to require an internship ro graduate, but no student should have to take an essentially useless course to receive credit to work for free.
