    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    53%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Florida International University graduation rate is above the national average.

    53% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Florida International 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 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.

      I used to really love going to FIU even though there was always a problem and the staff never cared to help but these were things I tended to overlook. Now I am out of state for my Master's and the way my new school handles things and actually resolves issues within a day is amazing and makes me realize how much FIU actually kind of sucks as a school..
