    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    26%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Marion Military Institute graduation rate is below the national average.

    26% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Marion Military Institute 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 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.

      Overall Rating:

      My child went to school here. It was the most awful experience. I learned that there is a ton of alcohol and drug use. They lie about their programs. They are very misleading and completely misrepresent the school. If you want two years of depression for your child this is the place. The leadership is a joke. Just say no!

      My son went to MMI after high school through the Service Academy Program (SAP). He was Accepted to West Point after his first year and was VERY well prepared for his Plebe year. It was the best decision we could have made to prepare for a military academy!

      Overall Rating:

      Great memories. A place of discipline, history, and comraderie. I learned leadership, culture, and above all, respect for my fellows. I proudly carved my name in one of the Chapel bricks before leaving to serve my country. My only regret: not being able to do it again.

      Attending MMI and absolutely love it here! Great teachers and faculty who make sure you succeed. This place is like family and you truly make long lasting friends.

      Overall Rating:

      While the teachers and advisors and most of the staff were really helpful and kind, the student body as a whole was awful. Along with hazing, no respect for recruits who just got there, and the cadre cursing and swearing all over the place; this place may have a reputation for being a "good" military college but it is tarnished every day by its own members. I rate one star only only for the faculty and staff who were so kind and helpful to me in the long run and will not be attending or recommending this college to anyone again.
