Graduation Rate

Loading...
29%
BELOW AVERAGE

Huston-Tillotson University graduation rate is below the national average.

29% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Huston-Tillotson University 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 an extensive 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 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.

Overall Rating:

The staff in EVERY office is extremely unorganized, slow and somewhat unprofessional. There is no reason for a university of this size to have so many issues with financial aid, answering questions, or graduation prep.After getting approved for graduation I was told I needed to come back to take another class because they "missed it somehow". Now i have to scramble to get into a class and make a payment in 3-4 days because of their oversight and lack of responsibility. How my transcript goes from 124 hours to 117 hours is mind blowing and the fact that no one can offer an explanation is ridiculous.I have had so many issues in my 4 years of dealing with this university from financial aid, being over charged for classes, not receiving my employee discount, etc.Stay as far away from this university as you possibly can. Enroll anywhere else but here. Taking classes here will cause you to stress abundantly behind things you wouldn't even need to worry about with a more organized school. Once I am done with this university in May I wont even drive past this place.

I am a 1995 graduate of Huston Tillotson University, formally Huston-Tillotson College. My campus experiences in the early "90's was great! I made many life long friendships and still have connections with faculty and personnel on the campus today. Azie Taylor Morton's daughter, Virgie Morton is one of my closest friends today. I can honestly say that when I visit the campus now I see many positive changes and students who appear happy. Great things are happening at HTU!!!!!
