Graduation Rate


Iona College graduation rate is above the national average.

60% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Iona 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 index 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 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Iona College

Overall Rating:

I enjoyed my visit to Iona College. Care about students and alumni from foreign countries. National Origin, Race, and Creed is a top priority to Iona College. Iona College is better than Quinnipiac University. I have first hand experience of Quinnipiac University. QU will discriminate if your Indian. They hate people of color. The only reason QU has Indian students on campus is because the Higher Authorities want their money. They hate people of color (Especially Brown people-Indians).

This school does not care about its students at all. The only thing the school cares about is charging students an over priced tuition which is pocketed by the president. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY HERE. YOU WILL NOT BE PLEASED

Waste of four years. I got more out of my high school social studies courses which I remember one of the professors referring to as garbage than I did in my history courses at Iona. Many of my classmates were a bunch of creeps.That is why IONA is an acronym for Idiots On North Ave

Rewarded my heroism for reporting a rape by kicking me out several years back, it was covered up because the girl lost her virginity during it and the perfect way to make me look crazy and discredit me was to boot me. Don't know why I ever went to this place, I have a lot in the bank and wouldn't go back even if they asked me to. I'm tired of being quiet about this injustice and I just realized you guys dug your own grave having a review section. I've done a lot of good stuff for people over the years so my record as a human being consistently shows this was the wrong decision and was cruel on the part of the governing body. I will not stay quiet just because you didn't want the press on it bringing bad publicity. To the uninformed: for the average cost of college, you can start 3 businesses usually. My gift to you. Now who's the smart one? Was also suspended additionally for self defense at one point prior. How does that make any sort of sense?
