    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    50%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Minnesota State University-Mankato graduation rate is below the national average.

    50% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Minnesota State University-Mankato 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 educational institutions.

      Overall Rating:

      My advisor lied to me. She wanted me to go to grad school, told me I didn't need a minor. I was forced to go an extra four semesters. Alienated because I didn't adhere to the far-left groupthink within my major. Was kicked out of some classes for having different opinions with facts. Apparently college isn't for expanding and broadening your knowledge and horizons. GWS department hated my arguments that used facts to prove them wrong with no rebuttal. The logic that goes on behind doors is backwards, political, and maddening.

      Overall Rating:

      Great school. College is not supposed to be easy, so you are challenged as a student. Minnesota State University offers a variety of advanced degrees backed up by lots of student support. Come and visit and see for your self; experience is the best way to see for yourself.

      Overall Rating:

      Small-ish, well-laid out college. Decent parking. Students and faculty seemed friendly.

      Overall Rating:

      This review is for the AET Department only. You will NOT get an actual engineering degree, instead, you will get an engineering technology degree, therefore you will NOT be able to get a "real" engineering job. The job opportunities that faculty tell you you will get are very unrealistic and highly unattainable. The department appears to have many internal conflicts that impede with the ability for their students to learn. If you have considered going to this school for this degree, don't. Either go to another university or take MET.

      Overall Rating:

      Lots of younger teachers, but lots of good teachers. Obviously there are teachers that do not care of you learn. Would recommend for students to that want small town atmosphere, lots of kids from the city get bored of the small town, and just drink and complain how boring city is. Graduated and lived in Kato for a while. Really is a charming city
