Graduation Rate

Loading...
47%
BELOW AVERAGE

Robert Morris University Illinois graduation rate is below the national average.

47% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Robert Morris University Illinois 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.

Horrible horrible!!! I spoke To Ruth Cruz earlier this year about starting in February. She specifically explained to me if I was to start in February I would owe $1000 out of pocket. I asked her why when I completed my financial aid and had two pell grants. She explained to me I did not meet the deadline, however if I started in July I would not have to pay out of pocket. Ruth stated to me there is a deadline when doing Fasfa. If you don’t complete it in enough time a student can owe out of pocket. I called her yesterday to confirm what day school starts in July and she told me the 16th. I then went on to confirm what she had told me back in February of this year regarding aid. She starts laughing saying that never happened and I would have to pay $700 out of pocket for the semester! Like what ? Excuse me what do you mean it didn’t happen? I am not pulling this information out of my ass. I know what you told me I wrote it down. What that comment means to me is that she just told me anything to get off the phone ! And I don’t like that nor want to be associated with that behavior. I told her I will attend another University and hung up on her worthless behind.

It’s hard to get ahold of anyone at the financial aid office. When I enrolled I was not told how much I would pay out of pocket I was told towards the end of the quarter that I owed $4000.

TL;DR STAY AWAY! This School provides a high school level education at a high cost!I'm currently in my second year and I want out of this place. Robert Morris University is pretty much a joke and most other colleges don't really take it seriously. That said, for the most part, the cost of tuition is way too high and they're probably going to raise it next year because everyone is leaving. Most of the students here are on scholarship through athletics. These kids are sometimes accepted on talent alone and fail once they start taking classes. Because of this, most of the classes are "dumbed down" so RMU can deliver the piece of paper to these students without them fundamentally understanding what they majored in. Don't be surprised if your biology class consists of middle school experiments and building paper airplanes (this is an actual example, not kidding). The math is about a high school level, and many other professors use class time to force their political views (liberal and conservative) down your throat.As for the core (major) classes, the teachers will try their best to cram a semester (30-40 weeks) worth of material into ten weeks with the results you'd expect. This meaning, you will come out feeling unprepared and inexperienced in comparison to other similar academic programs. The professors in most core classes are nice, but even they are overwhelmed with trying to cram everything in such a tight time span and you will only come out with a basic skeletal understanding of your degree, making you barely "trainable" coming out of college, the average salary coming out of RMU is about $31,000. You could easily make this much in four years moving your way up at McDonald's, without the debt.The institution itself prides on getting you in and tossing you out as fast as possible, even when they put you in classes that delay your graduation. Don't expect any help or insight from any service that the institution provides. The academic advisers will just put you in whatever class they want to put you in without any input from you, kinda making you feel like you're in high school. Advisers will also often guess what you will get your bachelor's degree in. The result being very odd class placements.The student resource center (which they love to tell you about at orientation) is a sham to get you to apply, and while they brag about giving away free Lollapalooza tickets and such, this NEVER happens. The "student resource center" is essentially an email blast about different clubs that you could find anywhere else.Financial aid will mess up on a regular basis, so make sure you keep them in check. Seeking financial aid advice is a bureaucratic nightmare, but basically your "financial aid adviser" is there for show. You can go all 4ish years without talking to this person once, instead you will talk to one lady who handles everyone's financials.This school will not help you at all with any sort of intern or job search at all. They view it as their job to cram whatever they absolutely have to in order get you a piece of paper and toss you aside. As such, you will suffer from the consequences of the expensive, self-serving, ill-preparation that Robert Morris University engages in. Apply to any other college downtown and you will probably get a better deal.

Staying next to their team at a hotel. Disrespectful unruly kids. And their chaperoon isn't much better. Not a good look for our country's future professional athletes in the making. They kept us awake till all's hours of the night. When we politely asked them to keep it down the chaperoon gave us an earful. Someone (wonder who?) removed our do not disturb sign during the night and slid it under our door.

This is the worst university I have ever seen. They said the students can apply for a grant, before application to the university and Later when the admission procedure is done and time for fee payment they asked me to pay the full tuition for the semester and said now that the policies changed there is no such grant provided to the student. The policies will be changed anytime there. And because of this I withdrew from the university and they denied to refund my application fee which was non refundable . Reason for withdrawing was sudden policy change without notice to the student and has been applicable to the student who had got already enrolled . When I was there to attend the very first class , at that time they are informing me. Because of this I wasted the time and the money and They denied from their words which were told earlier to admission for this purpose I asked them to refund the amount but they did not. It was all their mistake , inspite of loss I requested them a lot to refund the amount they just ignored my emails. I also asked them to transfer me back to the school which they did as quickly as possible without the acceptance letter from the school am supposed to be transferred.Otherwise no school transfers the student to the other unless they get the acceptance letter which they did and this clearly states that it was all their mistake and purposeless denial. Please be careful and have all things in written form so that they can't deny from what they said.
