Graduation Rate

Loading...
82%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Gustavus Adolphus College graduation rate is above the national average.

82% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Gustavus Adolphus 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

My son is in the Class of 2016. He is having a fantastic experience in all areas including education, teaching, dorm life, and athletics. He came from California and was interested in a more rural or suburban experience in a college town, instead of the big city/big school experience. Also, he wanted a different climate, and despite the worst winter in 25 years, still appreciated Minnesota's four seasons. The school is well-run and our interactions with the administrators has been A+ between registration, accounting, etc. This is a great school that has great students, educators and administrators.
