Graduation Rate

Loading...
48%
BELOW AVERAGE

Eastern Nazarene College graduation rate is below the national average.

48% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Eastern Nazarene 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

I had friends at ENC who were accepted to Harvard College or Dartmouth College, but it seemed like we all wanted a different kind of community from the average secular college or university. My professors at Eastern Nazarene had great credentials, but knew me by name and would chat with me one-on-one, too. I still keep in touch with some of the professors, which is great.The chair of the physics department actually has a dual-appointment at Harvard, which is pretty incredible. And I've come to realize that the size of the College, combined with the faculty quality, is probably one of the reasons I had classmates who actually beat out MIT students for competitive internships. I had friends who got into graduate school at Harvard with full scholarships, which is cool, but it's more fun to know that your friends at a small Christian liberal arts college can actually outperform those students at the undergraduate level, too.Sometimes, you really need to be there to understand how awesome ENC is, though -- it really offers a lot more than it advertises. I constantly hear it referred to as "the best kept secret on the South Shore". I figured that would make a good title for my review. =]
