Graduation Rate

Loading...
56%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Georgetown College graduation rate is above the national average.

56% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Georgetown College 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 index doesn’t take into consideration 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 schools.

I had a 4.0 GPA in high school, a 34 ACT, was a National Merit scholar, first chair bass saxophone player in my school's band, and was captain of my school's Beta Club. I applied BINDING early-decision and got accepted to Georgetown College, thinking that it was the prestigious Georgetown University. However, after I was accepted, I realized it was the wrong Georgetown.
