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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Missouri Western State University
The worst post-secondary educational facilities one can attend. They are unorganized, the school itself forces their students to perform unreasonable tasks (such as completing courses that are not required, nor a part of their desired degree), the staff (including most professors) are mediocre. I do not recommend that ANYONE attend this university. The school itself should be shut down.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I don't know the rest of the departments. But at least on the Education one, there is a lot of racism. My daughter failed an observation class, where everybody knows that all students pass it. ( They just need to observe and follow the teacher directions). I am a teacher, and I know that something was wrong from the beginning. Just because she is hispanic. I contact the president, and nobody did anything about it.I also met a black student, from the Science department who had a bad experience with a Science Teacher. Definitely NOT a good university for Minorities.However. Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville opens its door to everybody!! No wondering it is full of people from India and other countries.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Every time I go there everyone treats me with respect, and the staff and students are always asking if I need help! They are always looking to lend a helpful handSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Current student(2017) and I can say this school is what you make it. There are tons of opportunities for students, you just have to be on the lookout. A great option for local students and those from across the country.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
The school is nice and the classes are great, but the Financial Aid Office and the Business Office needs to seriously get their ducks in a row. I've never had a smooth encounter when dealing with them and I always get conflicting information, among other things. Communication is always a huge hassle. Get it together.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
