    Loading...
    97%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    duCret School of Arts graduation rate is above the national average.

    97% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to duCret School of Arts 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.

      Overall Rating:

      duCret is an AMAZING school for studying fine art, graphic design, and illustration. My experience here has been only positive, and although it is not well known, it is the oldest art school in New Jersey. It has such an intimate one on one approach to teaching the fundamentals of art, and rivals the more expensive, newer schools with it's old world charm and unique way of teaching. You will not find a better education in art anywhere in the tri-state area. I love duCret.
