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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Grace University

I went to Grace in the early nineties and loved the professors. The key ingredient that has always made Grace such a special place is the relationships! Grace has always stressed accountability and life change! I met my wife at Grace! I love the music program, and all the new opportunities for students to express themselves artistically! I just love Grace so much, but most of all I am so extremely grateful that they have not left the foundation of the Bible at the center!

Loved being here. The profs know and pray for me. They encourage me and my classmates want the world for me. I have grown so much closer to who God has made me during my 4 years there. Loved it. It's small size gave us a close community and worship on Mondays is the BEST. I am super prepared for the real world.

As someone who has actually been a student at Grace (let alone ever stepped foot on the campus--of which I doubt the current two reviewers have ever done), I want to posit my own review of Grace's system. My own years at Grace have fostered an incredible amount of growth in my life, and have opened the door for many new lifelong friendships--many with the professors. The level of involvement of all the faculty and staff in the lives of the students makes it more like a home for those preparing for life in the "real world" filled with great mentors prepared to aid its inhabitants. At first glance I knew I wanted to go to Grace and my mind has never wavered on my desire to be here.

They can kick you out for your sexual orientation. Such a great Christian college !! To many other colleges that will accept you base on your faith of GOD and your Life choices. This one believes they are your GOD and they can JUDGE you !! Just remember this university can discriminate (based on color,race,) back in the day and now they choose sexual orientation in 2013. They can choose who you love. They teach / preach Hate. They also will help you with federal aid. Why would a university that is allowed to discriminate allowed to get federal aid and grants?
