Graduation Rate

Loading...
51%
BELOW AVERAGE

Grace Bible College graduation rate is below the national average.

51% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Grace Bible 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 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.

I had a really bad experience at this school. The Financial Aid Department was very difficult to deal with and I absolutely believe they intentionally mismanage funds. The cost of their program is outrageous and you really do not get much for what you are paying. Sub-par professors and disorganized, unstructured courses. Such a waste of time and money. There are too many options out there to deal with this school. Please take the time to do your research about all schools available to you before you give these crooks your money.

Community based campus with staff who invest great amounts of time and energy into the students college experience! I am finishing up my Bachelors of Music in Worship Arts, and the experience has been incredible. I spent two years in jazz ensemble with the skilled Dr. Werkema. I gained knowledge in music and the Scripture that are extremely valuable to me as a Christian. The professors are knowledgable, the chapel services and classes challenged me in my faith, and the Community Life staff were caring people that made my time at GBC worth every minute! The education will stick with me for a lifetime, the financial aid helped me pay for the bulk of the bill, and the student events created a Christian community that was incredibly fun. I made lifelong friends that challenge me in my faith to this day, and I was given leadership opportunities that helped hone those skills. The school advertises for employers and has presented me with job opportunities off campus as well as the on campus employment that I had, which substantially beefed up my resume with interpersonal, communication and servant leadership skills. Now in my graduate studies, I have started my Masters of Divinity in Intercultural Studies at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and look forward to continuing this journey with Christ, using the skills I gained at Grace Bible College to glorify God for a lifetime by serving others. I wish to teach guitar lessons, compose, perform, lead worship, and use my Bible knowledge to preach, teach and live the Word. I am currently connecting with local ministries for future employment while working through my Master's program.

I am finishing up my last few classes before I graduate the bachelors program. I have been with Grace since 2011. I have never had so many issues with a college program when it comes to fees and financial aid. Apparently I was not fully changed for my classes, some where left out. Then I had to pay out of pocket or get an unsubsidized loan, which gained interest because of the mistake. Also, the company they rent their books from is also very difficult. They were late sending me a few of my books for a few different classes and charged me a fee for their mistake, which GBC allowed them to do. When it comes to the class instructors, none of them are on the same page. None of the instructors graded the same, even though they were to follow the same rubric/guidelines. When I went to my advisor and the director of advisors, there was nothing that was done in order to fix the issue. Their word were exactly: "Some are harder then others but look at it as a challenge. This is your eduction take away what you can from it.". Let us keep in mind, the class I had an issue with was a lower 300 level class. My 400 level classes were no where as difficult as this one 300 level class. I also was taking duel classes, where I took more than one class at a given time. Still none where as difficult as this. I did reach out the the instructor and received no reply. Seems to me as the school and advisors do not have the students back when it comes to things like this. Why pay to go to a college like this when you receive this sort of feedback from advisors. I had many other colleges in mind, looking back I wish I chose differently.

Sadly I couldn't even finish my semester at GBC due to a terrible fall and ungodly hospital bills. This is where we saw the true Christian heart of the staff. Even after 2 brutal concussions, classes were expected even though bed rest in darkness and silence were doctors orders. The only person to hear my cry was the Dean, and she could do nothing. The staff believe this was a test from God and I'd heard countless times, "Anxiety doesn't exist, because it's not of God." Or, "pray harder and it would change". This was the last straw. I even stayed after more than one professor babbled about, "all gays go to hell" and, "God must be punishing you." I'll let you all know how life is after my $5,000+ loan Ispaid off from half a semester (that they messed up) and my permanent brain damage that I acquired there, Is at least controllable. Thank you GBC, for showing us what real Christians are.
