Graduation Rate

Loading...
55%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Maryville College graduation rate is above the national average.

55% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Maryville 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 index doesn’t take into consideration 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Maryville College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

A liberal hippie commune if I ever experienced one. Every class is permeated with sociological undertones. I personally did not go to college to pursue sociology so this was rather annoying. They preach acceptance and open mindedness no matter what class your in. I am an open minded adult who accepts everyone. I did not appreciate it being shoved down my throat every single class. Look out if you disagree with or take a different view than the professors. You just might receive an email basically telling you that you're close minded and you need to do more research in a very passive aggressive manner. Also, social life is nonexistent as each professor treats their class like its the only one you're taking. Homework, projects, papers and out of classroom requirements are rigorous and make it impossible to do anything but chain yourself to a desk. I left in the middle of a semester due to receiving an email like the one mentioned above. If you don't want to enjoy college and don't enjoy open conversations but instead being called closed minded for not seeing eye to eye with your professors then by all means apply to Maryville College today. ;)

It has a big reputation that it simply does not uphold plus it is very expensive with tuition hovering around $40,000 dollars and increasing every year to pay for renovations. The Dean of Students requires all students to live on campus for all 4 years paying around $10,000 for room and board. The only way to get around this is if you are married, have children, live with legal guardians, or happen to be a 5th year senior. If you choose to live off campus without approval you might get charged for room and board anyway as a punishment. A large portion of tuition monies goes toward making the Career Center "better" meaning more career fairs, events, staff, and a fancy new office space. Unfortunately, the Career Center is not very helpful. For example, they told me to look at job listing websites (basic common sense), gave me a resume template (told me to copy it), and lastly they did nothing to help me network for a job after graduation. At one career fair there were a total of 4 employers and volunteer/internship recruiters who turned me away for not having a major they were looking for. The student body at this school is a hit and miss. Some are nice people you will make friends with while others are rude, backstabbing, opinionated, and judgmental. My roommates made me uncomfortable, as if I were an outcast. The two of them conspired against me and called a mandatory mediation supervised by the RA of the building who took sides against me. One roommate even tried to get me to repent my sins for not being a virgin and anotyer verbally yelled at my mom then ran down the hall crying and ended up getting her banned from my building simply because she came to visit me without getting their permission. As professors go, some plan important rehearsals, concerts, and events last minute on the itinerary and expect any other obligations you comitted to prior to such changes to be dissolved. In addition, some professors are not very understanding and place academia as the highest priority--no excuses even if you have to work a job to help family or make ends meet. Although I made good grades and attained a BA and a minor, I still couldn't get a decent-paying job because Maryville College fails to prepare students for the job market--it is more of a graduate school preparatory college. As a side note, many of teachers and persons of stature within the college show favoritism so expect this if you are considering attending. Every Freshman is required to purchase the most expensive meal plan. Any leftover meal credits are not transferable to the next semester. I tried to allow a fellow student to eat with me at lunch one day and swipe for their meal. I was not allowed because students of Maryville College are not allowed to give away any more than three swipes per semester. Taste-wise the food is very cafeteria-like; it only gets better when the college shows-off to prospective students. Course material lists only come out a week before classes start so you will have no choice but to buy the expensive copies from the campus bookstore unless you ask your professor ahead of time. The school is very divided politically and trpically voicing an unpopular opinion could result in verbal abuse. Ultimately make your own choice. Not everyone's experience is the same but I wanted to share my experience so that you can hear a different opinion.

I graduated in 2015. MC is an amazing school. It's a community, and the professors actually know your name and care about you and your goals. I received a great education. My only complaint is that I wish Maryville offered graduate degrees. I went to a larger University for my Masters and the corporate feel was so offputting. The financial aid at MC helps so much. I paid less for my 4 year degree at MC than I did for my 1 year graduate degree at the University after considering the financial aid I received.

An excellent school. Maryville College has outstanding faculty and dedicated staff. Don't let the price tag scare you off, their financial aid is generous.

Overall Rating:

I graduated from Maryville many years ago and am very grateful to have attended this school. I received a solid academic foundation as well as strong spiritual and moral support. These preparations served me well as I attained my master of science and Ph.D. degrees and saw my career through to its completion. In my work, I have met other Maryville alums who have had the same feeling about this fine school.
