Graduation Rate

Loading...
59%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Kettering University graduation rate is above the national average.

59% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Kettering 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 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 educational institutions.

A great school to learn both theoretical and practical hands on engineering. Be prepared to work hard as this school isn't for the weak. Long hours and little social life make this a difficult school bit one that will reward those work hard in the long run.

Overall Rating:

Excellent school that changed the trajectory of my life. Small class sizes allow for a very personalized education. I wouldn't hesitate to attend or recommend this school. After 15 years in the workplace, my peer group is far and above non-Kettering students in our total income earned and world influence. It's pretty amazing.
