Graduation Rate

Loading...
51%
BELOW AVERAGE

Framingham State University graduation rate is below the national average.

51% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Framingham State 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 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.

Highly recommend not going here, save your money and apply else where, you'll end up transferring out anyways because of how bad this school is.

Most hilarious college ever!!

Overall Rating:

Affordable education, was able to continue my athletic career, fun school, good location, got a job right upon graduation

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

So not worth the tuition, even if it is a state college. They also said there would be night classes available since I work, and they barely have them. Also, there were a total of two courses available for the summer. Asked a teacher and he said it was simply because they are underpaid and don't want to do the extra time. So there you go.

Overall Rating:

The English Department is absolutely incredible. I've learned so much here. The administration can give students the run-around at times, but it isn't as bad as people make it seem.
