Graduation Rate

Loading...
25%
BELOW AVERAGE

Purdue University-North Central Campus graduation rate is below the national average.

25% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Purdue University-North Central 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Purdue University-North Central Campus

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I highly recommend attending literally anywhere else. The administration doesn't do their job, instead only springing fairly hefty surprises on faculty and students.Classes required for majors aren't offered so a four-year plan turns into a six and seven-year plan which has somehow gotten worse since the merger although the merger came with the promise of more courses.Instead, the merger brought statements like, "you have to take this class at Calumet," and "we're not offering that anymore." The Dean of Students even suggested I finish my degree elsewhere because the degree promised to a group of students (who took over half the courses toward the degree) would not be offered (and that not only did my professors lie to me about it being offered, but that I need to name the professors that said this to ~10 students in the major.)Great school, if you want part of a degree.

There's a LOT to put up with here. The schools systems are a disordered joke, everything from their financial office to their website, and even how they have the advisors set up could ALL use some improvement.Hopefully, you end up with a good teacher. These folk will make or brake your experience.Update: Watch out for the PNW cross campus transportation issues. Born from ignoring prominent issues with their registration system, Purdue has occasionally left students stranded through what might be a lack of respect to their coach bus contract. If you happen to be "accidentally" enrolled at both campuses, do not be surprised if you end up missing a day of work or two. To anyone unfortunate enough to have first hand experience, I suggest sending them an invoice.

Went to the challenger with our summer camp. The children loved it. The employees there have a lot of patience with the children and show enthusiasm. The activities were engaging and the movie about the sun and laser show was amazing! Will go again and definitely recommended for field trips. They have a gift shop where you can buy astronaut food too.

Overall Rating:

After going here I dont recommend people invest their time or money here. There is always issues with money and classes...and not just with me but all my friends who were in different fields. Beware as classes often dont transfer from other Purdue locations (just the same name). Professor Dunn and Professor Ward and Professor Robinson were the only ones I had in 6 years there that cared about students and helping them. I had teachers create a harassment envrionment, and I didn't say anything for fear of not receiving my diploma because the ball gets dropped so much. Security needs to be increased. Teachers who would do things against the rules and you are stuck because if you report them...are they really going to listen to a student against a professor?... especially ten yeared ones? I didn't walk at my graduation because I wasn't proud of the school I was coming from. It was such a horrible experience I just wanted out of there and not a second spent there longer.

This university will have many requirements to fulfill one's major-but will not provide the classes necessary to graduate. They rent statues, but never have enough money to fix up the buildings that are falling apart.
