Graduation Rate

Loading...
38%
BELOW AVERAGE

Eastern Michigan University graduation rate is below the national average.

38% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Eastern Michigan 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 an extensive 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.

Overall Rating:

How is EMU's college of business ranked so high?!?! This was by far the worst experience I've ever had. I would give them zero stars if I could. I don't even want to put their name on my résumé because I'm so embarrassed. This is the most money hungry and greedy school, with the worst professor's. I'm not sure how they're still in business. This is my biggest regret in life, is going to this University, and that's pretty sad. I urge you to weigh out your options before going here, it's a real disappointment. :(

Overall Rating:

Most unprofessional business offices I have ever felt with! They say they are open Anne you drive 45 minutes to find out they are closed unt September. Mind you this is April! The financial aid office will screw you and charge you fees when they are the ones that control financial aid. You call and they tell you they will call back then never call! The advisors don’t know up from down! I am so glad that we are done with this school! I would not suggest ANY ever go here!

Overall Rating:

Emu is a pain in the ass about everything. They suck at scheduling and most of the workers are ass holes who think there big shots. Most of the teachers are good though I can say that but I wouldn't recommend this school they are greedy and care more about money and how they look than you as a student. The graduation rate is low they handle money poorly and give you a lot of headaches and stress.

Overall Rating:

I really enjoyed my time at EMU, the class sizes were perfect (not too large or too small) and my professors were competent and helpful. It does seem to have sort of an identity problem though with UofM being so close by and I had a lot of trouble with the admissions department.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

I do like the fact that EMU is a university that targets working class students of all backgrounds, I liked the Social Work department, the faculty does a good job depending on the person, and some of the student groups are doing some important work in improving the university. However, the administration especially the Board of Regents are extremely out of touch with students and faculty for various reasons to the point where the EMU Faculty Senate issued a no trust agreement. What's even worse is that they have been appointed by a governor since the 1960s, which means they are not elected by citizens and students alike. The administration also did a really poor job handling the racist graffiti incident last year and almost expelled a student for occupying the Student Center. The food at EMU's campus is not really good at all and tuition has increased significantly.
