Graduation Rate

Loading...
66%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Goucher College graduation rate is above the national average.

66% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Goucher 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 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.

Overall Rating:

It is a Liberal Art School. The campus is nice and safe. They have security guard in the night. The only reason is I am giving it four stars is cause of the construction. It is annoying to drive around.

Overall Rating:

This is an excellent college with outstanding professors who want to know that you understand the instructions/lessons, retain what you were advised, and use what you were taught. The campus is breath taking...you don't mind studying while laying outside on the grass and listening to music or just the winds. The grounds are immaculate. The food is even great. Want to wonder off campus??? Well, feel free but security is "always at the entrance" to assure that students (and associated staff/faculty/friends) are the only ones on campus. It is not only a safe campus but you truly feel secluded from the world when you are there. Top Security, Top Academics, Top buildings, Nice rooms, Great people, Outstanding professors, Wonderful activities, Great events. It certainly will "spoil" you.
