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.

The staff at this school is amazing, they help you with literally everything and are so understanding. The classes are small so there is more one on one. So glad I decided to go to EBI!

EBI is giving me the opportunity to better myself and to make a better outcome for my family. I never thought I would be cut out for school after high school but they definitely make me believe in myself everyday. EBI hasn't put me down for trying your hardest. The professors and staff that I have been in contact will the time that I have been here have been sweet and keep in contact with me to see how I am doing and if there is anything that they can possible help with. I couldn't ask for a better place to further my education.

I loved my experience at EBI and was very satisfied with the program but I was already working in the Medical field when I attended and for me it was better pay to stay in the Laboratory where I was working at the time I graduated from their Medical Assistant program in 2002. Now I have been recently laid off from my job due to the Laboratory at St. Joeseph Hospital being downsized. I remembered the life time career placement that EBI offered so I made an appt and filled out a resume sheet, but that was turned in on Nov 12th and I am not getting a call back. I am really interested in working for a Dr. office and hope to hear something soon. I have worked since I was a teenager and really could really benefit from this service!
