Graduation Rate


Methodist University graduation rate is below the national average.

38% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Methodist 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 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 institutions.

Received a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Information Technology with a minor in Business back in May 2015. I enjoyed every moment of my Methodist University Experience. Even the end of semester deadline stressful projects, ha! They taught me a lot about life. I grew up at Methodist really (even though I was 26ish when I started). Profesors were nice, helpful, always pushing you to find the answer on your own, but leading you down the correct path!

Let me start off by saying there are so awesome teachers and staff here, BUT you do have that slim group that makes the overall experience not so pleasant. I've always heard rumors around campus that some ethic groups can be treated a little unfairly, but I had not experienced it first hand until recently. I was treated very rudely by a staff member and I did report it. Of course I was given the standard apology in which I expected, but I felt like everything else was followed up with fluff about policies of the campus. I'm sure do to confidentiality I would not be told whether this person had any disciplinary action or not. I'm sure nothing happened and that is just my personal opinion. This was not the first time I had been encountered with an unpleasant response from this same person. I would not even go as far as saying do not attend this campus, because it is some positive things and people at the campus. BUT make it a last choice if you other options. I am here for one purpose only and that's to obtain a degree in which I will Do, but it is always nice to be respected by employees of an organization where lots of money is being spent. At the end of the day if there aren't any students they would not be getting paid.

Administration can be frustrating, but at what school is everything perfect? I love Methodist with all of my heart. Small schools allow students better opportunities. I have done more at the age of 21 than most at 65, and this is because of MU. I highly recommend the school, even if it is only for one year-that will change your life.

Overall Rating:

I have greatly enjoyed my experience here. Small class size, helpful staff, instructors who have actual experience in the fields they are teaching. There are clubs and organizations to fit anyone's interests. The student population is incredibly diverse, including a large group of international students. The university is also veteran-friendly. Go, Monarchs!
