Graduation Rate

Loading...
54%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Missouri State University-Springfield graduation rate is above the national average.

54% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Missouri State University-Springfield 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 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 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.

Overall Rating:

Very proud to have graduated from Missouri State with both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Endless opportunities to get involved, learn, and grow. Professors that truly care about their students and their subject. Employment opportunities as well. I was fortunate enough to have worked as a graduate assistant—a major benefit of this was that my tuition was waived!

Overall Rating:

Horrible kids here. I can't seem to fit in anywhere here. It's always crowded, too. Nobody cares about you here. You'll have no friends here. Don't come here.

Overall Rating:

A hidden gem that is slowly emerging as a real threat to Mizzou.Class sizes are very manageable and personal. It is easy to connect with your professors.Constant renovation and building might hurt some. But it means the university is thriving and growing.President Smart is a brilliant person who is making the university a place for all.After for all the 1 star troll reviews make sure to read them carefully. A bunch of them are unrelated or political. I was a member of the College Republicans and went through the Political Science program, never felt targeted.
