Graduation Rate

Loading...
50%
BELOW AVERAGE

Multnomah University graduation rate is below the national average.

50% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Multnomah University 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 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 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.

The first week of school security showed us a tape of a guy in a suit stealing a students backpack.we had chapel everyday. One couple broke up and the boys separated from the girls and I guess the girls went to the movies. We all had wolf names. It was supposed to make us bond or something. They had a gym room it was small that was the first time I saw the African American security guard. I didn't like the fact that my roommate let me wear her clothes and then i stretched them out and that she laughed when i made a rootbeer float. When she had boys in her room they were pretty nice there was never any arguments. She put some music on my iPod the music was pretty depressing. She could be over bearing when I first got there she had taken up some storage shelves we were supposed to share so she had to move some of her things out of the shelves. Alicia the dorm counselor said that Julie was eccentric. Julie said eccentric meant that she was crazy and told me she didn't think of herself as eccentric. Alicia was so nosy you need a lock for everything in your room. She did ask to use my Listerine mouth wash. Then she had me sent off her parents said you don't know what that girls going to do after she had already moved out of the dorm room we shared. Then she said something about eating a baby's placenta. She was a stubborn spoiled brat with a big butt. One time I was in the library watching Cornerstone online mission and she just stared at me for 5 minutes and she brong a male friend with her they conversated and then they left. She used to tell me stories about her rich friends. then I had a fruit smoothie everyday. and the president used to go nude at the beach. my rolling backpack was unscrewed. then the orange cat had a urinary tract infection. Girls putting tampons on the wall. Hearing about missionaries dying on mission trips. Going whitewater rafting. Sharing Belgium chocolate and how she thought that living in Belgium made you a fascist. Then one girl asked me to spend the night over her house her room was so clean. Katherine asking me out to lunch then telling me she has a black friend I should meet then sayingk slow.katherines probably used to dealing with charity cases. They don't have an elevator if I was in a wheelchair I would have to be carried up the dorm steps.for Valentine's Day the girls dorm was decorated with Rose pedals and outside too. Every girl received a Valentine's Day card. They had a food fight and the same day some scrubby looking guy was telling me he found my food card and also my Bible one time. Then some of the students started telling me about one time some student had a nuse put on his car. And one guy would put dead rats in people's rooms. They had a puzzle and I knew my piece wouldn't be on the puzzle so I sent it back. Some guy named Tom asked me out but I don't date shorter guys. They had an Irish outfit contest and we played Guitar Hero. One time we had to choose where we were going to volunteer I chose to volunteer at the hospital wheeling sick children around. One time when I was walking back to my dorm two students met me like 2 mins away from my dorm and walked me back to my dorm that was nice. I was there when someone knocked off Tanya's message board the woman's dorm mom. Then she stared talking about when Jamie fox played the homeless man who played the violin. Then they put up When the police came and got me they started put up no smoking signs 10ft outside the dorms in green. They took us to the mall and showed us the ice skating rink. They took us to the arcade and bought some floor fire crackerps. When we were on our way to mall one of the other male dorm members said something about maternal instincts coming in. Then when I was at the library a guy yelled you can't hide forever's.jesus was just a homeless hustler who begged for food and shelter. Putting on gloves tthey just looked like some white racist supremacist and they looked excited and then when I got to the hospital the doctor was talking about he was from the university of Michigan then

I highly recommend the school to anyone who is interested in knowing their Bible better while keeping things in proper context and being challenged to live out what God's word recommends and to also being challenged to avoid what it condemns and to temper what it tempers. Since I graduated in 1984 some might question any recommendation I might make as obsolete or irrelavent. But I would like to add some perspective, especially after reading the other reviews. In the ideal world, where everyone would be perfect, there would be no need for a school like Multnomah because all parents would be teaching and living a Godly example at home and the local church would have the perfect leadership team, lessons, sermons and life counseling plan and everyone of us would be personally devoted to the study of God's word and prayer with wholehearted willful self disiplined obedience. It is a world I gladly strive toward, but it is not the world we live in, because none of us is perfect and all of us have a sin nature. Also, the atitudes and motivations that we bring to any endevor will have much to do with what we will get out of anything. I was a 25 miles off campus married student of no exceptional academic abilities, so you know there were big challenges in my experience at Multnomah. And I was involved in a church where the Bible was highly valued and taught verse by verse by Godly people so I was prety well grounded in God's word. But because Multnomah is a full time focused learning enviironment, what I learned was some things that brought more breadth and depth of understanding and confidence in God's word that can't be covered thouroughly on Sunday morning to a very broad range of maturity and academic ability. Multnomah can greatlly help in developing knowledge, cohesive thinking and the ability to defend the faith, learning original languages, translaters challenges, Hebrew poetry, self disipline and accountability with timely purpose while developing from scripture your own personal systematic theology. But you have to provide the right heart and obedince. Is it expensive? Yes. But ignorance and foolishness are much more expensive and can hurt others and the cause of Christ. And even if you learned nothing from Multnomah, you will have had an opportunity to be a Godly example, pray for, help and encourage others :-) And if you truly know and live a lot, then Biblically you should be a teacher by now not just a critic. Now go, grow, be intimate witth God, pray for and be a blessing to others. Search the scriptures daily to see whether these things be true. Speak the truth in love. Then there will be much to rejoice about both now and forever!! In Chridt's love and service, Bob

Is it okay to hold the most important and essential truths of the most high God behind high incomes and massively expensive tuition costs, and then teach it in a unprincipled, ununified way? That is the question with Multnomah. I took around 40 credits there and not a single moment I spent there was necessary to learn anything I did, and ultimately slowed and diluted the process. The Kingdom of God is not within the walls of institutions of man designed to profit the owners and palettes of the donors, far out of the reach of the poorest of poor, enslaving them with immense debt.One of their most renowned professors told an entire class in regards to the Torah, "We used to think in terms of principle, but now we have to ask what is practical." Another well revered professor of the same standing, once told me after asking how the Prophets were sure that their prophecies were from God, in a scared and "feeling cornered" type way, exclaiming loudly "They just knew!", which I doubt would slip past the hallowed minds of Berea. This would sum the general ethos and aura at the school. Principles are everything and this school has been slowly bowing to the world for the last decades under the guise of holiness and relevance. Take a look in one of their seminary windows one day and you will see the great horror that has seeped into the minds and faces of men seeking either power, or an escape from the gritty nature of following God.Do not go. Open your bible. Study intently. Listen to your elders. Read. Talk with believers. The Sprit of God is sufficient in all things, with all peoples, at all times, in all places, and will teach you more than you could ever conceive without an institution of man. Look for those who give freely without hesitation, and there you will find the highest and most sacred treasures of a real, and Living God.

This a great school. I have spent four years learning, growing, and maturing into a faithful Disciple of Jesus. The Christian Leadership Undergraduates Program is worth all the money spent. If your interested in growing in your faith and becoming better prepared to serve others while increasing your knowledge then I highly recommend Multnomah University.

It never used to be, but this institution has become very disappointing. I can't criticize their theology as either too left-leaning or right-leaning and actually, theology is not the issue. Besides, people are entitled to their opinions and positions. The problem is that they always have to be right. They're not really educating, but more like indoctrinating. I was eager to be here at first because of the hospitality and friendliness, but I soon realized that the niceties were a sham. By the end, I (like a number others) couldn't have been happier to get out of this place.
