Graduation Rate

Loading...
14%
BELOW AVERAGE

Franklin University graduation rate is below the national average.

14% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Franklin 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 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 educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Franklin University

I love Franklin University because the professors care. Each course is based on a student-centered curriculum created by a variety of professionals whose goal it is to provide top quality education. By standardizing the learning curriculum, they lessen the chance that students will be cheated by a professor who may be having an "off" semester. Go Franklin!

Crooks, my wife tried to attend there and cancelled classes according to there time deadline. (She cancelled because of going interested labor early).They had cancelled all classes but one and one class slipped thru saying it was never cancelled . Years go by and we here nothing then murphy law office gets ahold of it and said she owed for one class that she never attended or cancelled. We have ask for proof and never receive anything we request and just get a paper saying she owes it. We feel we are not obligated to pay but tried several times to settle or pay or make payment arrangements with Murphy's law office . They will not settle or take payment arrangements. We have made several attempts to call or handle this and they never call back or produce anything. Now we get court summons over this....very unprofessional and janky University. I work and in finance and have seen similar things on my customers credit from Franklin University and Murphy's law office ...seems that this is something they have done to others as well.....

I read through a lot of the negative reviews about Franklin and I am noticing one common theme: lack of accountability. Most of the reviews were blaming the school for doing what college requires you to do. No one said going to college was going to be a walk in the park. You have to EARN your degree and that requires putting in the work, the effort, and staying motivated. It’s up to YOU to take an exam at the testing center or obtain an appropriate proctor. They give you more than enough time to arrange that into your schedule. It’s also up to you to turn assignments in on time and coordinate your schedule to fit the deadlines. In the professional world, your boss isn’t going to extend your deadline because your kid got sick so why should your professor? Plan ahead and BE ACCOUNTABLE.I am two weeks from becoming a Franklin Alumni and I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience. Franklin is a great option for someone who needs a little more flexibility than tradition “in-person” college. I highly recommend the programs they offer, the instructors, and the administration. My experience was awesome because I put in the effort. Please do not take the reviews from people being lazy as accuracy about this university.

DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!! DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!! DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!! DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!!They advertise being the number one online university. I've never in my education history encountered such a bad experience. For the amount of tuition that this university charges, you would believe you would have a better educational outcome. I am an advocate to not attend this university if you want support, respect, and a better education experience. Especially if you want to graduate on time and not be stuck with rude, unhelpful professors, and be left with paying more money out of pocket.
