Graduation Rate

Loading...
85%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Moody Bible Institute graduation rate is above the national average.

85% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Moody Bible Institute 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

My dad went to Moody Bible Institute & I grew up loving it!!!I had once decided to start to listen to Moody radio! I particularly didn't like Karl's behavior towards one co-worker Carly.That day: I called into the radio station because I did not like the way that Carl was treating Carly. The guy who answered took my name and he took my number and he listened to my complaint and he said he would pass it along.However today I called back because I didn't like the way he was treating her "again", and he was treating The Other Woman better as she was talking about her dad cutting down some trees and he seemed so excited about this woman but he was not talking to Carly. And the ladies made a joke about Carly that I did not like! It seems like she is not feeling confident with these guys because of how they are treating her and reminds me of the little kids and high school or even less.So today when I called and someone continuously hung up the phone on me and I thought maybe it was a mistake. But what happened was eventually after calling about 10 times, Carl himself came and picked up the phone and he said HELLO GINA this is Carl I hear you have a problem with me !!!!!!! When he said that to me I was SO surprised because it was so unprofessional and it was so ungodly. He was very rude. I said to him, I am glad you know my name and he said yeah I got your name and I hear you have a problem with me so what's your problem. It was as if he was trying to bully me like he was doing Alli but I did not let that Spirit scare me! I asked him for the name of his supervisor and he pretended not to have it and he threw a number out to me and then he change the number to another number. First he gave me 4200 and then he changed it to 4300...Guys, this actually floored me and I cannot believe that someone who talks on Moody Radio would behave this way and if he is behaving this way with me and having a angry attitude yelling at me and coming at me like he's in high school or less, he's doing it to Carly and even more he's doing it to people on the streets. When I say people on the street... I'm just speaking of people outside of me and Carly. I am actually speechless and I'm going to stop talking on here right now. But I had to let it be known that Carl behave this way and I will be praying for him because it is a spirit that we are dealing with and not the flash. Karl needs to repent and he needs some help with his behavior. I could not be the first person to complain about Karl's behavior. You need to have a talk with Carly possibly and I swear to you on Jesus that none of this is fabricated that happened with me.He was hanging up on me because he knew who it was! We all have issues but when we are working with the public and working for the Lord and Ministry, we are not to hurt people. He had no clue what was going on with me while he came at me with a knife in the spirit and may I add this was not a spirit of the Lord.So.. I called the station (because they were requesting to call & give your testimony... And they would not allow me on the radio. I was on hold for extremely long & hung up on. Then I called back. Eventually, I called the manager (Matt) again to complain.He was over-protective of Karl; saying that's his friend.He made a "few" negative remarks towards my opinion of Karl.I thought that Matt was out of order & unprofessional. I politely asked for his supervisor; he REFUSED to give me any information; stating that I HAD to call elsewhere to get that information.I stopped listening to Moody because of the morning crew's disrespect!A few weeks ago: I called the office of Moody Church to ask for the manager of the man that's in charge of the radio station and the young lady who answered the phone sided with the individuals that were rude. I asked her to please pass my number to the boss of Matt. She did not; but instead passed my number to The lady named Carly. She Called my phone being rude.Let me ask a question: Does ANYBODY care about this situation?
