    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    71%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Goshen College graduation rate is above the national average.

    71% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Goshen 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 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 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.

      Planning on coming here next August. The people are great and the counselors are so helpful. The campus is also very beautiful with lots of dedicated green space and it's also right next to many nature trails and the downtown. The best thing is that even though it is a Christian college, they are very open minded about people of other beliefs. And how can I forget about the amazing facilities? Especially the Sauder Concert Hall. Truly wonderful!

      Culture for service is the motto or was when I went there...indeed Goshen College has a culture of it's own developed by the international outreach that the Mennonites have, this developed its own culture and it is a warm place with excellent education and committed professors and staff all who espouse the mission statement of their church and school. I enjoyed my time there and made life-long friends, I graduated in 1995.

      Goshen College has a progressive, tight knit Christian community that can be hard to understand from the outside.I just graduated and can attest to the quality of education, lived-out faith of my peers and professors, and campus atmosphere that encourages critical thinking. As a physics major, I got to know my professors on a first name basis, had internship opportunities every summer, and even spent a semester abroad in Morocco. Beyond imparting technical knowledge, Goshen encourages you to live prophetically and intentionally in a complex world. Highly recommended.

      Goshen College is a must visit if you are deciding where to spend the next 4 years of your college career. Have you ever been to a summer camp, you know, one of those camps where you meet the best friends you have ever had and they stick with you for the rest of your life while helping give you the best experiences you have ever had. If so, that is how I would describe Goshen College, it is the perfect bundle of incredible education with teachers who really care about you, mixed with the most down-to-earth student body you will ever meet. The mennonite community is one like you will never experience and has a great energy due to its young liberal culture. You will also gain one of THE BEST experiences in a lifetime when you are given the ability to go explore the globe on Goshen's signature study abroad program SST. This will feel like a home away from home before you reach your 2nd week of involvement.
