Graduation Rate

43%
BELOW AVERAGE

Dean College graduation rate is below the national average.

43% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Dean 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 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

The year I attend Dean was the worst year of my life. They prey on kids who's options are limited. Once they cash your check you are forgotten. A horrible place. Stay away. Go to a community college instead then transfer to a proper university. Please do not let your children suffer at this miserable "college".
