Graduation Rate

Loading...
37%
BELOW AVERAGE

Rasmussen College-Minnesota graduation rate is below the national average.

37% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Rasmussen College-Minnesota 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 take into consideration 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

A descent experience up until the college disbanded the accounting department. Now all student fiances are handled loosely though program advisers whom will NOT reach out to students about problems in finances. Instead the student is left out of the loop until it is too late to fix the problem. There is no proactive approach to solving simple accounting issues for this college. These problems will cost the student even more money out of their pockets and the college will not take accountability for the mistakes they made. Up until the accounting department was exterminated, I would have given this school a 5 star rating. In an effort to increase profit, they have ultimately hurt themselves as this will lead to more students getting burned in the process.

As a single mother of three going back to school was a bit scary. It had been over 20 years since I was in school. I am glad to say that Rasmussen College has really made it easy for me to care for my children, work and go to school. They have made me feel important and the instructors are always willing to help out. The courses are well layed out easy to access. I would recommend Rasmussen to any one.

I am ending my first quarter here at Rasmussen. I love how that staff and faculty are very warm and inviting here. The class sizes are perfect and you do learn a lot I enjoy studying here in the School of Health Sciences program. I would recommend this to any of my friends. You also meet and make some amazing friends that help you as well through the process as well as the staff.

Hello, I have been with Rasmussen College, since Oct. 2013. I would like to say that if you are looking for a college, with great people, (I mean everyone, from the office, to the Instructors) well this is the college to join. I have been taking online classes, and have found Rasmussen to be very helpful, flexible, and educational. Please at least give them a call to see if they are right for you. I also want to say that the above did kind of sound like and advertisement, and I guess it could be, I just am so happy with this college, I really can't say enough good things about Rasmussen. I was nervous to start school again, after twenty plus years of being out, however they have made it easy, I also want to say I am amazed at the grades I am getting. Its great, so good luck in your future, I hope you are able to fulfill your dreams.

I am currently a student ending my second quarter at Rasmussen. I have attended college classes at a different facility before this and it was not even comparable to this school. I have recommended Rasmussen to anyone I come in contact with that is looking to start college. I couldn't ask for a better school when it comes to working with my home and family life and college. I have been given the opportunity to start a work study job and the experience has been great to add to my resume.
