ABOVE AVERAGE

Curtis Institute of Music graduation rate is above the national average.

69% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Curtis Institute of Music 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 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 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 institutions.

You denied Nina Simone entry on a scholarship because she was African American. She was a gifted classical pianist and because of your racist policies,he life went in a different direction filled with pain. May the pain of every Ancestor that you created be visited upon your seeds and worn upon your very legacy from hence forth. So it is written.It shall be done!💋
