Graduation Rate

Loading...
32%
BELOW AVERAGE

Northwestern College-Chicago Campus graduation rate is below the national average.

32% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Northwestern College-Chicago Campus 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 index 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

As a former student I was thoroughly ripped off! And I KNOW I am not the only one. They charge university-level tuition fees for an educational quality well below that of most half-way decent community colleges.Seriously, this "college" (note the irony quotes) SUCKS! They do not go past the Associate degree level, making them literally no better than all but the worst community colleges. [And good luck transferring credits out!] How can the proprietors of this joke-of-a-school live with themselves, knowing that the majority of their students are underprivileged people struggling to attend their overpriced sham college, only to remain unemployed? (An Associate's degree is a fancy way of saying "college dropout" nowadays.) Because they lack any semblance of a conscience, that's how! The inhuman monsters who own/operate this scam have no qualms about extending the welfare line.P.S. For using the phrase "inhuman monsters" to describe the proprietors of this institution, I apologize to actual monsters.P.P.S. Notice how virtually all the 4 and 5 star reviews come from reviewers who reviewed no place else. Can you say PAID SHILLS?

This school has taught me so much more than any book ever could have. The small classes sizes are great for getting to know your classmates and making friends quickly. Knowing your classmates makes you a better student. The teachers here are always available for any issue you might have, from a school related problem to a personal issue. They are always available. The admissions team is great, as well. They all have your best interest at heart and truly want to see you succeed. If you're looking for a college where you will be taught as much about life as you would any subject in your academic plan, NC's Chicago campus is the place to do!

Northwestern College came into my life at a crucial time I was twenty seven and had no college education. I was working a dead end job that had me going nowhere! I was struggling to find a place where I felt I could succeed and when I walked into Northwestern, I knew I had found that place! Everyone was so warm and inviting from the moment I got there. I am majoring in Business Administration and I can't say enough good things about the program! The teachers are always available to help you in and out of class. They will bend over backwards to make sure you are successful. They want it for you but they let you know that only YOU can EARN your degree. I am in my last quarter here and have been applying to four year colleges and universities, places that were never even on my radar because I never had the confidence to think I could make it there. Northwestern has given me that confidence by providing me with an education and a support system that I know will last me far beyond my graduation. I am proud to call myself a student and will be even prouder to call myself a graduate!
