Graduation Rate

Loading...
60%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Manhattanville College graduation rate is above the national average.

60% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Manhattanville College 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

I attended Manhattanville College to receive my degree in business.The advantages: It has a very beautiful campus, small class size, and some wonderful instructors. The cost of my education was about half of Pace University and a third of the price of NYU. Several of my instructors also taught at NYU and Fordham University. The education is comparable to these schools. The small class size also makes it very easy to network with classmates.The disadvantages: Although I learned much, the school's reputation is not on par with NYU or other big name schools. It can also be difficult to get in contact with various members of the administration, financial aid office, and counselors. The staff seems to have a high turnover which made it hard to resolve any issues that come across. Some of the campus buildings are also very dirty, but that may have more to do with the large undergrad population that lives on campus.Overall, if your looking to save significant amount of money towards a degree and are motivated enough to build your own career, the school is well worth attending.
