    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    29%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Eastern Oregon University graduation rate is below the national average.

    29% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Eastern Oregon 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 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 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 educational institutions.

      Curriculum is ok. Worst customer support for school I've ever encountered even Comcast is better they pick up the phone. I had to miss a whole term because I need to communicate with an advisor who's harder to get a hold of then a pope. And now this semester they have a hard time processing my financial aid even after all my documents are in making me miss valuable education time. Idk what kind of Ponzi they might be running but it's ridiculous they can even call themselves a university I guess you get what u pay for.

      EOU is a great school. I never thought I would attend here, but absolutely love the professors and the convenience of their online classes. Biggest concern is price. When I started it was much cheaper, and my wallet has regretted the increases every semester.
