Graduation Rate

Loading...
39%
BELOW AVERAGE

Piedmont International University graduation rate is below the national average.

39% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Piedmont International 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 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 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

An incredible school that really strives to teach the Scriptures and impact the world. The professors are amazing and really take time to get to know you and pour into you! I love Piedmont!

Overall Rating:

I absolutely despise this school. When talking to staff I felt that it would be a good fit. I had only a couple good teachers who were there to actually TEACH me and HELP me through my classes. If I asked questions or didn't understand an assignment teachers made me feel stupid which made it hard to get assignments done correctly. This is not a "Christian" school. Yes there are some good teachers here, but they are very few and far between.

I am 25% through my Ph.D. program. So far so good. The profs allow for research that does not have to fit an exact mold. Thinking is held in high esteem, and discussuon is the basis for mutual education and discovery.
