Graduation Rate

Loading...
55%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Monroe College graduation rate is above the national average.

55% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Monroe College 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 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 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.

Was my first college , love the environment , love the staff , very friendly .. but expensive ...

Overall Rating:

I attended this despicable College between the years of 2009-2012. The Professors and Staff members were extremely unprofessional. They would belittle and talk about students in a unacceptable negative way. My major was Criminal Justice, and most of the Staff members, including the Dean, were very lazy and disrespectful to students. For instance, one day I asked to speak to the Dean regarding my grades. I expressed to the Dean that I strongly feel that one of my test scores should've been higher. The Dean became very short tempered and stated, "You should've been happy to get a B!" Then some Black Man came out of no where that worked in the office with dread locs yelled at me, and then told me to get out in a extremely angry tone...😪 I reported it to the Dean's supervisor. He totally disregarded my concern and then wanted me to apologize to the Dean... ??? It was a nightmare attending that College. I could literally write a book! Wish I would've never attended this college. During that time depression was taking over my life and through it all, I just wanted to finish College. Just wish I would've had the strength, courage, and self-esteem at that time to attend another College, instead of enduring pain from Monroe. It was a lot of Minorities that attended the College; Professors would pray on their weaknesses and try to have sex with them eventually. (SMH) Those Slum Professors had no desire to give students a fair education. In addition, it was one Professor that I admired and her name is Professor Clark in the Criminal Justice department. She was Last but not least, this college tuition is unthinkablely expensive for the outcome of having a horrible education. PLEASE DON'T ATTEND THIS COLLEGE!! They pray on the weak and vulnerable!! It's a Illegal SCAM and RIPOFF...

An honest and TRUE opinion...my roommates, a few classmates and I had a terrible experience... all of my professors were great of course, however dealing with financial aid advisors, student services, forming services were all very unprofessional (mainly st the new Rochelle campus). One specific financial aid advisor constantly raised her voice with a condescending tone. The food at the Bronx campus was great...the food at the new Rochelle campus is another story. I actually avoided the new Rochelle cafe mostly to avoid tiny creatures. Also forming was a disaster there were mice, centipedes and we had barely any heat or hot water during the winter, I would go to sleep in my hoody wrapped in 2 blankets, lived in an apartment styled dorm where one individual actually came through our front window and left through our front door...only one roommate was home and the time and it was never even investigated after informing security.

Went there for my LPN in 2012 and my RN in 2015. Had great experiences both times. Of course there are little problems here and there but I don't think you can find a private school at this price where you do matter to the institution as much as at Monroe. Loved most of my professors too. Great nurses always and I do recommend this school to most of my friends

I did my MBA here and I loved it! After receiving my Undergrad in a city college, I realized why it is you pay so much for private. The attention and help you receive from Monroe is amazing! The Dean reaches out to you every semester to hep you register, and make sure you get the right classes you need. Everything is very personalized and everyone I spoke to was always very friendly and happy to help. The professors were great as well, always reachable and welcoming. I loved it! It may have been tough courses, but it was also the best two years of school I have been through.
