Graduation Rate

31% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to LIU Brooklyn 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 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 educational institutions.

They treat like your a bag of money worst descion I ever made to come to Liu if want to see rats,cockroaches and etc in your dorms or in campus in general this college is good for you and plus you pay a whole amount of money which is wasting your time and education. The administration is terrible especially when you go to enrollment or the financial aid center they are trying to take away as much possible money from you. The only reason why I came to Liu is because of its pharamcy program But The campus itself is making me change my descion of how horrible it is my advice to people is don't come to Liu period

Please listen to the bad reviews about this school . They set you up for failure and take your money. Please go to a CUNY or community college instead! Disgusting staff, faculty, and environment. The library has dirty computers from like 2004, and keyboards are missing keys. The IT department is a JOKE. My blackboard has been down for a whole semester and they still have not fixed it. I wasn’t able to keep track of my grades because of this and ended up getting a lower grade in my class.The professors and faculty could care less about whether you succeed or fail. I received way better service at public SUNY &CUNY schools. This school should be shut down. Please save yourself the money, stress and aggravation of going here

Save yourself the headache and go to a different university. They charge you a ridiculous amount of money and you get poor/no services. It is a HEADACHE dealing with admissions and enrollment because they are disorganized and do not submit your papers, lose them, etcThey also do not provide you with accurate information or a list of things you do so you don't have problems and miss deadlines down the road.You pretty much have to fend for yourself and figure things out when you go along which is NOT professional or the way things should be for the amount of money you pay.There are not enough computers/printers for all of us. The bathrooms and elevators have issues on a regular basis. The school is not well maintained. LIVING HERE SUCKS (clogged showers, dirtiness, etc)However I do like some of my professors.My advice, only come here if you have no other options, like I did. This school is not worth the amount of money you pay.

This "school" is a joke. They set you up for failure. I regret every second I spend here. Every day I'm surprised with more s*** from this school. Save your money and get a better education from a community college. I didn't listen to the reviews on here and I should have. DO NOT GO TO THE SCHOOL. They just want your money and give you nothing in return. I've been here a 2 months and it's been the worst 2 months of my entire life. I am mentally scarred from this school
