Graduation Rate

Loading...
64%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Indiana Wesleyan University-Marion graduation rate is above the national average.

64% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Indiana Wesleyan University-Marion 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 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.

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb In the shape of an "L" on her forehead Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go You'll never shine if you don't glow Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold It's a cool place and they say it gets colder You're bundled up now, wait till you get older But the meteor men beg to differ Judging by the hole in the satellite picture The ice we skate is getting pretty thin The water's getting warm so you might as well swim My world's on fire, how about yours? That's the way I like it and I never get bored Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid All that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show, on get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas? I need to get myself away from this place I said yep what a concept I could use a little fuel myself And we could all use a little change Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go (go!) You'll never shine if you don't glow Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold

First of all this campus is nice but there is absolutely nothing to do there. They overcharge, pretend to be Christians, treat you like you're five years old with all of the rules, and the students and faculty are the most judgmental people I have ever met. Spend 35 grand somewhere else is my recommendation.

Overall Rating:

This school has so much potential but their online transition to teaching program has an incompetent field placement coordinator. When you sign up for the program you will be asked for your three placement requests. This does not mean anything. The school can send you up to 50 miles away from your home address. If you try to make a request through the field placement coordinator you will be sent information from the student handbook which states that you could put your program in jeopardy if you try to secure your own placement. As an adult I thought this program would accommodate adults but it does not. Having to travel over forty-five minutes several times a week does not accommodate adults that have children and obligations.Out of four teachers I have had three that were most wonderful. One was a nightmare and I almost withdrew from the program. She was more concerned with how she was addressed than providing the students with accurate assignment information or any help during the eight week class.The program coordinator, Ms. Penny, is very dedicated. The counselors are wonderful.This is an accurate review from a current student that is attending the online transition to teaching program in Ohio.
