Graduation Rate

Loading...
49%
BELOW AVERAGE

Midway University graduation rate is below the national average.

49% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Midway 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 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.

I attended this university a few years ago. I chose it for the seemingly excellent quality in education,setting and the possibility of new friends/experiences. I attended in the daytime, which was a girls only school at the time. I do not know if the day classes are co-ed or not now. For the tuition I paid to attend a so called prestigious school. Here is the sum total of what I received from Midway. *Professors that acted as if they could care less. *Constantly no response or advice from advisors. *Staff up to an including the libarian very rude and incompetent. * Most computers are broken or virus infested. *Financial department that you have to do their job for. I transfered out after 18 months and received a damn fine education from EKU. It was astounding how many other former Midway students I met there. You have been warned. Stay Away!!!!

Overall Rating:

This school isn't worth the high cost. Many of the programs, such as teaching, are losing accreditation. Several students aren't able to graduate in four years because the requirements are constantly changing.
