Graduation Rate

Loading...
63%
ABOVE AVERAGE

John Brown University graduation rate is above the national average.

63% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to John Brown 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 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 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 institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for John Brown University

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I'll finish my masters in the spring. Has been a positive experience. Have recommended the MAT program to several people. For being a private Christian school they're very accepting of those who don't share their beliefs. But all my experience is in grad school, I don't know what the undergrad experience is like.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Of any of the colleges we've visited for our kids, this one stands apart from and a notch above the rest. Love their unapologetically Christian world view, beautiful campus and genuine desire to equip young people not just for a vocation, but for a life lived for Christ.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Awful, awful, awful. All about money and nothing else. Didn't help me with student loans, never told me about the total costs, extremely difficult to work with. Not worth the overpriced tuition.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

This school has the best construction management program in the country . The faculty, building and curriculum a the best in the nation. They also allow students to get real hands on building experience as they take on local projects in the area.

Overall Rating:

Pretty campus! I don't personally go here, so I can't say much for the professors or classes. But the library is fairly large and JBU has a pretty good athletic center as well. I enjoy coming here when I don't have much to do.
