Loading...
72%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Maryland Institute College of Art graduation rate is above the national average.

72% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Maryland Institute College of Art 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.

Class of '00, crazy experience. Loved every second. Learned a lot. CYA, great people

Overall Rating:

This is great and with such professional success, how would you handle this one: someone has my outstanding artist son somewhere, St. Benedict st, Lehman, or Millington might know in 21223. For 2.5 years they will not let him visit me at home, and I wonder if he is free enough to see his way through to his vision for his future. I wonder if these are the left? I hope they do not use med rops on me too! I wonder if these are the caps? or are these the ebonies? I wish you could see how good an artist Robert is. Oh Yes, try this link: nightowlartist.carbonmade/robertransom

Overall Rating:

I am a student here and my experience has been noting but positive! There is so much opportunity and support, and there is a definite sense of community. The course work is hard as all get out, but a school doesn't become one off the top art schools in the nation for being easy. I am honored to call MICA my school and my home.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Forever grateful having the opportunity to live and learn with a thriving artist community for what now feels like a short period of time. I regularly wish I could "re-do art school", and miss the unique neighborhoods that MICA has developed. There is truly no place like it.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

MICA is an fantastic place to be at! One of the nation's top art schools and it is home to many majors that any artist or designer would love. The courses are hardcore and very informative and the professors and absolutely amazing! I am proud to call mica my home!
