Graduation Rate

Loading...
57%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Everglades University graduation rate is above the national average.

57% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Everglades 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 indicator 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 schools.

Currently a student at Everglades University Boca Raton College provided me with the best four years of my life (thus far). The school itself is incredibly historic and beautiful. There is so much rich history here, it is co partner with Keiser College. The student to faculty ratio at Everglades University is about 7:1, which allows for more than enough one on one interaction and help from your professors. Every single professor that I have taken a class from at Everglades University has established a genuine relationship with students and you can honestly tell that they truly want to see you succeed. The coursework can be rigorous, but it is well worth it in the end. This College will genuinely prepare you for real life, while providing a top notch education. The vast majority of students are beyond friendly, and there is a place for everyone to fit in at Everglades University . There are numerous clubs and organizations that provide extracurricular opportunities to attend. The Health Sciences, and Business Administration program has beyond qualified instructors who will provide you with all of the assistance you need to succeed. There was always an open office door that I could enter and to ask any questions. People here truly love Everglades University College and love people who attend.

My first suggestion would be to only take seriously the reviews of individuals who have actually attended this school and have gone through the complete process through graduation. The reviews of those who have not attended this school or who have uninformed views of the curriculum are not legitimate or fact-based reviews. Take it from someone who has completed a bachelors degree in Alternative Medicine and knows that the information you learn at this school is second to none. This school has the best of everything. The staff, the instructors, the director of student services, the academic and financial advisors, the associate deans, the dean are absolutely outstanding and are deeply invested in the personal development and academic journey of their students. The classes are a bit rigorous and intense at times but you learn A LOT. I, for one, enjoyed the challenge. The extracurricular activities such as student government and leadership distinction are well developed and truly enhance the academic experience and make you feel like you are a part of something greater within your program. Like anything else, your education will be what you put into it and at times, you may hit bumps in the road. Everglades University makes it clear that you are a priority and your success and advancement is their intent. They will support you and encourage you right through to the end. I would recommend this school over and over again!
