Graduation Rate

Loading...
77%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Indiana University-Bloomington graduation rate is above the national average.

77% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Indiana University-Bloomington 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 consider 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Indiana University-Bloomington

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

It's my alma mater, but it's nothing short of a diploma mill. A notch above Ivy Tech at best.Purdue is a MUCH better choice for a state funded school that has in-state tuition.

Overall Rating:

One of my life's biggest regrets was attending IU. Almost none of my course work prepared me for the professional world, and no connection I've made in the university has helped. Campus was beautiful, but that didn't end up mattering later in life. I graduated a generalist, which hasn't done me any favors in the tech world. Maybe things changed in the last decade, but if I could turn back the clock I would have attended Purdue instead.

Overall Rating:

Best university. The campus is so beautiful. You don't realize how few trees you have around you until you've lived in Bloomington... so many trees and flowers everywhere--it's like living in a garden. And castles everywhere...the limestone architecture takes you away to a romantic time and place. You don't see cookie-cutter houses and mall parks everywhere. It's a little pocket of Indiana that is nothing like the rest of Indiana. The student population of Bloomington is the majority, which makes for intelligent neighbors. Also more young people than old, so there's a certain energy and vibrance about the city.

Overall Rating:

It's my alma mater, so I'm biased. However, I must say that campus is gorgeous and very student-friendly. There are areas to rest and relax. Wonderful wooded areas and picturesque locations along Jordan Creek to chill and hang. Buildings are very beautiful, and full of history. A wonderful place to go to school.

Overall Rating:

Love the campus! So much history and beauty. So many students are willing to help for anything you need. Everyone seems so nice, even the squirrels. Food on campus is good too. Would recommend a walk around the campus.
