Graduation Rate

Loading...
61%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Minneapolis College of Art and Design graduation rate is above the national average.

61% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Minneapolis College of Art and Design 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 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 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.

Overall Rating:

I attended the Pre-College Summer Session in 2017 here at MCAD and I love every minute of it. The campus is perfect for all of our needs. The Art Cellar here is top notch and have everything from paints to pens to paper. Anything an art student would need at an affordable price. The Service Bearau here is also very good. The people there are super helpful in assisting me with my final project. The College Center here has a ping pong table as well a pool table & arcade machine. The campus is also very close to Nicollet Ave. so there is easy access to a bunch of restaurants and cafes.

I am going into my sophomore year here at MCAD, its honestly everything I could have wanted. A great campus for those who like a close knit community and a more personal learning experience. Great Professors and courses available and gorgeous surroundings. As many Art schools are, It is expensive but not undo-able if you can get the scholarships and work study to help out! LOVE it here, cant imagine being anywhere else!

A school of art is like a school of fish—it's just safety in numbers.

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

A great place to see amazing work from unknown, little known, and well known artists. Also a great place to take adult continuing education classes in any visual arts discipline you could imagine, including things like furniture design and grant writing. Their instructors are second to none. Classes are a little spendy but well worth the money. It's safe to say that if you take a continuing education class here you will get significantly more than you pay for.
