    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    19%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Kentucky State University graduation rate is below the national average.

    19% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Kentucky State 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 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.

      This is a great institution of higher learning. I visited the campus in March of 2016. I visited Kentucky for my cousin's wedding and my cousin-in-law attended and worked here. He gave us a tour of all of the facilities and all the school had to offer. Before visiting, I didn't know this campus existed. I didn't even know it was a HBCU. This was the first HBCU that I visited. But, the students and staff are friendly and I can say with my head high, you wouldn't regret coming here.

      The WORST university ever. Except the faculty members nobody will help you out,specially the International student services. They have a DSO, who doesn't know the rules and regulation for the International students.I am graduating in may 2016 and the DSO at this WORST school is saying that I could not apply for OPT until I graduate. Actually I have to apply for OPT 90 days before I graduate.All I have to say is if you have other options then choose that, then to wasting your time getting all headaches by Enrolling in KYSU.I will rate "0" stars for this university, but because I can not post this review until I give atleast 1 star.
