Graduation Rate

Loading...
33%
BELOW AVERAGE

Newbury College graduation rate is below the national average.

33% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Newbury 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 a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider 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 schools.

*MUST READ IF YOU VALUE YOUR MONEY AND TIME* This school was one of the WORST schools I have ever attended and I am glad I am transferring this up and coming spring. Most students only go here to get their grades up to transfer to another school. This school could be a high school or a community college. Only good reviews about this school are by the people that are apart of the res life staff so please do not listen to what they are saying in these reviews as you look through. Most of what I am about to say is the same as all the other bad reviews on this school. I honestly wasted a year and a half being here and it is not worth the debt to stay here even if you are coming here to play a sport. As an athlete if you an other offers to play somewhere else DO NOT CHOOSE THIS SCHOOL unless you already know alot of people and like this school. You are better off going to a BIGGER school like Boston College up the street or going to other schools in the surrounding such as Lesly, Wheelock, Pine Manor, or Simmons if you really want to go to school in Boston because the campus is really small only like 8 buildings there isnt even a campus map. For starters this school is EXTREMELY boring and has nothing to offer on and off campus. MOST students not all but must student only talk to the each other which is the baseball and soccer teams that get the most attention. Other sports in this school are barely appreciated or talked about. MAJORITY of the students that go here are weirdos and are socially awkward. Im not going to lie as a freshman staying in weltman it is not that bad because alot of your friends are in the same building and you can interact with them. But as you get older this school becomes worse. Many people transfer every single year which isnt good for a college. When you become a upper class men you have to move to these even worse dormitories that are called the Brookline Manor. We got a email this year saying that we may or may not see house mice in our rooms like that was suppose to be okay or something. There also is NO diversity in the surrounding area of the Brookline Manor. You get stared at for being colored more than anything. Being roomed here is INCONVENIENT because it is about 30 mins away from the school so you basically are commuting and when it gets freezing cold you have to wait for the train and the the slow newbury shuttle bus that takes 15 mins just to come down the street ! If your a freshman the bathroom in weltman are extremely disgusting. Sometimes there are big turds that are left in the toilets for days at a time. The workers here are lazy and rude. A few of the employees that work in the cafe are rude and always seem to have attitudes. One worker she is woman and is always serving breakfast during the weekdays always seems to have an attitude for no apparent reason like its your fault she has to serve our food. The cafe food is disgusting and they make some the most worst ideas and food combinations in effort to make things different. One time they serve peanut butter and jelly in a burrito wrap! like what is that ? or chicken nuggets on a biscuit ? The RA's here swear that they are doing something just because they are RA's they think they can talk to you anyway the want like they're your parents and think that they are above you as if you really have to listen to them because you dont. The classes are easy which is a good thing if your just trying to get your degree.The school has no gym only a weight room. Basketball players have to go to other gyms in the area. The sports are bad no team is really good here expect the softball and baseball teams. Overall, just dont come here I know this review was typically long but I only want to save you from making the same mistake that I did by coming here. If you did not get into the school of your choice your best bet is to go to a community college to get the grades up to transfer but dont come here. They will make it seem like its fun or the coaches will make it seem like everything is all good until you actually get here.

Went here back in early 90s...the dorm security guards used to sneak us into bars at night (they were I their 50s). The administration at that time were useless. This is an extremely overpriced education The only up side is the location
