Graduation Rate

Loading...
58%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Eastern University graduation rate is above the national average.

58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Eastern 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 index doesn’t consider 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.

Overall Rating:

Eastern is an amazing institution.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Great school! Faculty and staff are friendly and very caring. They encourage students to reason and have faith while seeking justice. Eastern effectively incorporates reasoning into all courses/programs which often forces you to seek Truth on your own time. They don’t force religion or Christianity at you. They create a safe environment for open dialogue. Campus is beautiful, clean, super secure. Loved it.

Overall Rating:

The best years of my life. Professors are not afraid to tackle tough subjects. They know that we can't go out into the world as sheltered Christians. This university and it's professors equipped me to love and serve in such powerful ways.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

This is a good Christian university with multiple programs to choose from. The campus is beautiful and the facilities are well maintained. Everything is within walking distance. The young adults that go this school want to be here. As a parent, I have met with people in almost every office on the campus and, though not problem free, every person I have dealt with works to assist issues (whatever they may be). Very friendly. The surrounding areas provide a tremendous amount of choices in food, places to stay, and things to do.
