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 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.

Just so you know! Most of these pictures are from the Rockland Campus, not in the New York City campus! I figured I'd clarify.The Rockland campus is gorgeous and beautiful. I had a wonderful time in my undergraduate years at Nyack. Don brings up a point, people can be people no matter where you go, but the transformation that I've seen many of these people go through is amazing! Let me tell you God meets people through the work that is done on this Campus. There is so much investment and love given from our faculty to the student. Every year I was watching people literally transform before my eyes to become more like Christ.In regards to academics, Nyack does not shelter your student! They provide all the views that are available within a certain topic and teach our students to develop Christ centered views around the information. I loved my time in the Biblical and Theological studies department. I found many opportunities to obtain a top notch education in my field through the dual listed seminary and undergraduate classes. It prepared me well for the current program I am in, which is Nyack MA in Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins.Nyack's Rockland campus shaped me in to the God fearing person I am today. I could not have encountered God's presence the way I did ANYWHERE else.

Over priced and underwhelming. Put the same amount of money in a pile and light it on fire. You'll be better off. It's run by liars and hypocrites that are only out to make themselves look amazing. They worship Ron and Wanda instead of Jesus.
