Graduation Rate

Loading...
34%
BELOW AVERAGE

Delta State University graduation rate is below the national average.

34% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Delta State University 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 indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Delta State University

Overall Rating:

Delta State was my first college that I ever attended in my life. After I graduated from high school I remember my mother told me that she wanted me to attend Delta State so I'm like "okay why not". I have to be honest I had some good experiences and I had some horrible experiences at the school. I remember when I first went to that school back during the summer of 2005 I used to hear rumors that Delta State was racist and this was before I think a new president at their school. I remember the first I went to that school and I started taking Summer Developmental classes there and the person who was over it was over it at the time was Ms. Diana Blassett and I remember she was going over the rules and regulations along with my mother before we started classes the next day and she told me (which she told every black person that was taking those classes) "If you want to play, go to Valley State". I'm was confused at first and I never experience racist but I knew alittle about racist but not what she was doing but my mother caught on to what she was saying and she told me "She had no right to tell you that if you want to play go to Valley because Valley State is a black school so why say their school?" She was right why say Valley State and I understand if she said if you want to play go to another school to play around but she said Valley State wow really?! My mother at the time wanted to go to Valley after she made that statement but I refused to go there because Valley State at the time refused to give me more information about their summer development program so I stayed and continued to participate in the program. It wasn't easy and I went through hell just to try to pass that program. It seem like they was switching the tests around with the black people that was taking the program with them. I remember it was 3 black boys including me that was taking classes with me and 2 black girls that was taking classes with the rest of the students and turn out 2 black girls was the only one out of the bunch that passed the program. It was sad and I remember they put me on probation and suspension at the same time after I failed that one summer sessions for Delta State I'm like really how can you get on probation and suspensions at the same time and I remember they did my mother like that after she attended school after I left and she can tell you that she had a horrible experience as well. Some of the things I liked about the school was the cafeteria. The cateteria was the bomb I swear it reminded me of real restaurant lol! I loved their library i thought it was amazing how the library was so big and they had so many computers for you to use it was crazy and the people that worked there was really nice! If I had the opportunity to go back and visit and eat at the cafeteria or so I would love to do it but so far as become a student there no way I don't feel comfortable going back but I do forgive them and I wish them the best! If its meant for me to write book about my experiences I would love to do it and if it turns to a movie I would love to do show the world my story of what I went through.

None of the office workers have their stuff together. If you call financial aid and ask them the same question twice, you will get two completely different answers. Paperwork is always behind, it's like no one knows how to communicate. This is NOT a very professionally run school. And don't even get me started on student life.

Friendly staff, cosy campus, nice teachers, diverse human resources. Maybe not as big and diverse as other campuses but it is definitely diverse enough.

DSU is one really awesome university! Small enough campus that most classes are only a 10 min walk away but also big enough that there are alot of events to go to so you'll never run out of things to do here. Really all this school needs is maybe better funding so they quit making budget cuts. Overall good place to go to college!
