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 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 perception. 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.

Overall Rating:

I graduated a lonnnnngggg time ago, in 1975 as a matter of fact. In those days, it was transitioning from being an all-girls school to serving the needs of the community. I went to their Operating Room Technology program. We had the best clinical experiences in the big OR's all over the city; Detroit General (now Receiving), Childrens, Bon Secours, Hutzel and Harper. I don't even know if they are all still open. Anyway, after living in New Jersey for thirty years, going to college there, educating my kids in Manhattan, the things that plague Marygrove plague all colleges. They are run by people, first of all, and people are prone to making mistakes. I hope they are able to keep improving because if they ever closed, it would be devastating to the community and the city at large.
