    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    38%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Harrison College-Indianapolis graduation rate is below the national average.

    38% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Harrison College-Indianapolis 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 take into consideration 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:

      Please do your research before attending this school. When i signed up to attend this school in 2010 I was so naive at the fact they were not here to help me, they were here to put me in debt. This school is NATIONALLY accredited through ACICS. The Accrediting Counsel of Independent Colleges and Schools. Who have recently been under fire with the department of education for lying and Accrediting the now defunct ITT Tech. In a nutshell, this school does not have a regional accreditation which is the type of accreditation that will help in the long run. If you graduate from this school and you want to continue your education elsewhere, you have about a 5% chance that they will take your credits.If you are going to this school for a quick vocational program just to get your foot in the door. I would reccommend it, however, the debt you would be in is outstanding. If you are going for any type of degree. AA or BA. Don't be fooled by their easy admissions process. It wont matter at the end. I guarantee it.

      Overall Rating:

      With a graduation rate of 38.2% in 2014 and my experience as a student, I would not recommend someone risk attending this college. You are not only given unrealistic expectations for "teaching yourself" (translated into their words: "at your own pace"), but you are also withheld from vital help towards success that eventually transforms into failure, overwhelming debt, and collection agencies before being formally withdrawn from the school. Please save yourself the time, distress, and eternal debt with a place not concerned with success or graduation rates, but with collecting unsuccessful student funds.
