Graduation Rate

Loading...
73%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Maine Maritime Academy graduation rate is above the national average.

73% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Maine Maritime Academy 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 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 institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Maine Maritime Academy

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Excellent school to learn seamanship. They have several majors, but basically students concentrate on "Engine" or "Deck". "Engine" students become engineers and sit for Coast Guard license to become certified Third Engineer with unlimited tonnage. "Deck" students study navigation and sit for a CG Third Mate's license. It's a regimental school, meaning students wear uniforms, learn discipline and are subject to random drug tests. Employment opportunities are very good as are starting salaries. It's a great career, if you're cut out for it. The campus, here on the coast of Maine is STUNNING ... well maybe not in January, but it's nice in the summer LOL.
