Graduation Rate


Martin University graduation rate is below the national average.

10% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Martin 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 indicator 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 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.

I was visiting Indianapolis when i stumbled upon Martin University's campus and, within sight of it, a compounding pharmacy that interested me. I went on campus looking for the administrative building. A security officer stopped me just inside the doors of the glazed sphere which happens to have been exactly the place i was seeking. The officer politely asked my name and intent. When i answered she accompanied me, showing me the offices and classrooms most relevant to my needs. I have since been back to Martin several times. I am not an alumnus of the school, but I have always felt like one here. In 2016 Martin helped to create an education zone surrounding the campus. The purpose of the education zone is to encourage and uplift the neighborhood. However, Martin University serves people from all over, as i found out on my first visit. -- tg

Great School to go to especially since i have been going there for two years. i tried Iupui, Indiana university, butler, and Purdue. None of those schools would let me into there university because I didn't have enough credits when I had prior college credit. Ivy Tech had me take a assessment test just to get into the college, and I took the test but I never hear anything back after I completed my process. Furthermore, I had college credit to go to the college that was transferable but they said their course number didn't match up. I was highly upset on top of them being a state funded college with organized people. After I didn't get into the college I tried Martin University because of it being like an HBCU and they would help me achieve my goal of obtaining my degree. Once I completed my enrollment I felt at home, I felt like i was apart of a family,and I felt accomplish. Since my enrollment two years ago I have made the president's list and have been doing so much better with finding better employment. Thanks Martin University Class of 2017

Today I went to Martin University to register for classes for the Spring 2015 semester. Everyone was very disorganized and unaware of what all I needed to do to set my classes. Everything is done by paper and my file was lost because the lady said that "too many hands" had got a hold of it. When I went to financial aid the lady was very rude and trying to rush me through the process. When I asked her the amount of money that I would need to pay for school after using financial aid she responded "well you have loan money so there is no need to worry." But that was not the question I asked. I had my 7 month old daughter with me who got a fussy, the lady asked "what is wrong with her? Does she have a pacifier?" After having been there three hours and still not registered for classes I decided that this school was not for me. I need something that is more organized and able to keep up with my file. Martin University needs to get advanced in technology area and hire individuals whom can understand basic questions.
