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 account 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.

Willfully mindful and not afraid to speak God's word, would love to visit this college since my last visit was along time ago, but from what I remember the staff and students all seemed friendly and open minded of others, but not afraid to defend there faith with the armor of God, practice of Apologetics, good memory of God's word, and most importantly a loving attitude.
