Graduation Rate

Loading...
69%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Hood College graduation rate is above the national average.

69% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Hood 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 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 educational institutions.

I have heard that this particular school of advanced learning is censoring freedom of speech. However I do not know how true this is, I have watched videos talking about this school and it has been given a bad reputation and the videos have persuaded me (a conservative) to rate this school 1 out of 5 stars Thank you and have a nice day 😂

The college that loves to censor other people's beliefs other than their own. That's pretty pathetic if you ask me.

Overall Rating:

Small and cosy school. Beautiful campus. Really good price. Its advantage is definitely the small size that allow proximity with the teacher. I am an internal student and I felt greatly integrated.
