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 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 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.

Staff and professors are friendly and have real-world experience in their industry. ICenter projects allowed me to work with real clients in the area before I graduated and entered the workforce! I was able to get a whole quarter's worth of classes waived because of high school AP classes and graduate with a bachelor's in 2.5 years :)

Overall Rating:

I was attending RMU for a while and passed all of my courses without any issues. However, this summer term I had Professor Nessar one of the IT professors who refused to teach. He wouldn’t answer any of my questions, explain assignments to me or verify that I had the essential tools to pass his course. I reported him to the Dean of Students over the IT Department, who basically told me “We have received your emails where it shows you have reached out to Nessar on multiple occasions. Yet, the amount of times you reached out seems to threaten and Nessars is in fear of his life because you emailed him asking for help.” Instead of allowing them to suspend me, I withdraw and decided to take courses elsewhere. It wasn’t until recently that I attempted to return to RMU and they informed me I was denied re-enrollment due to social options. How do you deny someone re-enrollment for asking a professor for help? First, they said academic reasoning, however, my GPA was in great shape! So the reality is if you seek help and inform higher-ups on not being helped. All the professor has to say is he doesn’t feel comfortable teaching you and RMU will gladly deny you. Do I feel as if I was racially profiled? Yes. If I would have been a student of another ethnic group then the matter would have more then likely resulted in a better outcome. However, since I am an African American Female, we aren't expected to get treated the same or receive equal education opportunities. The entire time the Dean of Students sit there and looked at me as if he wasn't interested in my concerns and had decided upon a decision on the matter as soon as I opened my mouth and spoke.
