Graduation Rate

Loading...
44%
BELOW AVERAGE

Rosemont College graduation rate is below the national average.

44% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Rosemont College 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 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 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

Literally the worse decision I could have made. Just don’t waste your time even applying here. This is a horrible institution. The staff and faculty makes it no better. No organization, old molded building and to top it off horrible food. On the aspect of education it makes it even worse, biased biology department and ultimately throughout my whole experience I only enjoyed 2 professors. Leave while you can before you get trapped into this circus!

Overall Rating:

I only gave a rating because I had to. Otherwise, they wouldn't even get one star. Financial Aid department is horrible. The school is ancient. You can get in touch with no one and when you do it's the wrong person so when they direct you to the right person after waiting 12 years to get someone, you have to wait another 12 years to get any kind of answer at all and most times, it's wrong. Ridiculous! If It were my choice, my child WOULD NOT continue to attend. However, because it takes forever to have anything done...we know it would take a century to get a transcript. Do better!!

Overall Rating:

Terrible school. Ive heard that it was a wonderful school years ago but now it is definitely failing. The transfer-out rate is crazy. Nothing is clean, the dorm halls are absolutely disgusting and no one will do anything to change it. The academic buildings are unclean and outdated as well. Even the cafeteria has mice crawling around eating food on the floor under your feet, no joke. The food is horrible, it sits out all day and hardly has any menu changes. No variety and makes you sick. Most of the teachers are not worth the money. They do care about students individually but are NOT good teachers. A complete joke academically, not challenging whatsoever and basically anyone could get a 4.0 there. No communication between departments so information gets misconstrued and the only way to get things done is to get one everyone about it. Theres absolutely nothing to do on campus. The RAs try their best but they dont have much to work with at all. The only thing to really do is attend sports games, even the clubs are lacking, only having about 20 or so clubs. Security needs some serious work. The only two positive things I can say about this school is that they do care about you individually and most of the staff does try to help in any way they can. Also, campus ministry is a great opporunity and gives the students something beneficial to do. AVOID THIS SCHOOL.

Overall Rating:

There is a lack of communication between departments. Rosemont College is a small college that dedicates itself to the individual.
