28%
BELOW AVERAGE

Saint Augustine College graduation rate is below the national average.

28% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Saint Augustine 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 an extensive 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.

I am an agriculture engineer graduated from Monterrey tech in Mexico, one of the best private schools in the country. Despite my education background it has been a great challenge to succeed in the US market for multiple reasons. After several attempts and failures on other states I came to chicago. My prayers were answered when I saw saint Augustine across my new home. They welcomed me with open arms, they helped me update and print my resume, use the library and computers and most important they gave me a new hope. The hope that I can succeed as a Mexican immigrant and provide for me and my family. That I have value as a human being and that there is a community of Hispanic immigrants like me to lift me and support me. I am bless to have saint Augustine as my support...my platform to gain strength and launch myself again. I've been in US 25 years and I can say is the first time I found help like the one I am getting. So I encourage any immigrant to come to st Augustine where you will find opportunities, kindness, support and new friends. That is so rare to find. Thank you to everyone in st. Augustine keep the great job of being who you are angels. Dios los bendiga.

It may not be the prettiest or the best school, but it is a great school for lower class people. The tuition is really low and they always try to give you the most in financial aid. Everyone is respectful. 99.9% of the time the advisor knows your name not like the other school that every time you go to see your advisor they seem as if they never saw you in their life. In addition, they have a great daycare center. This is a perfect school to have a second chance on pursuing/continuing their major. The only thing I don't like about this school is that they don't have clubs to join but overall it is a great school.

When you buy a pair of shoes at Payless you go there for a reason. You don't have enough money, you really don't care too much about fashion, you're not looking for the most courteous service or the fanciest installations. You NEED shoes and this does the job just fine.St Augustine, since its founding, continues to be a "bridge". Its does the job of exposing students, primarily immigrants in their mid30's and 40's to the US system of higher education.It is not a Harvard not a UIC not even a Northeastern. It does help in putting you thru the ropes, of Financial Aid, Tutoring, Accredited Classes and getting you out the door to CONTINUE your career elsewhere.In my 13 years there as a Student, as an Adjunct Professor and as a Full Time staff of the IT department, I saw many things I liked and many I disliked. But it never let me down as far as its mission.You get in what you put in. I saw student complain about financial aid and not wanting to pay $120 for a math book. But they had no problem driving up in their $1000 rims sporting the latest Smart Phone.Take the time to talk to a single mother, with two jobs trying to make it in school to get a better job and ask her what she thinks. Does she like the fact that she can bring her children and have them taken care of while she attends classes?The better questions might be: "Who" are you and where do YOU fit in to this equation. Perhaps you are a person based on your circumstances and expectations for whom, St Augustine, has not much to offer.

Very Unprofessional, I had signed up an employee 2 months ago to take their sanitation class that started this past Tuesday, When we called Monday to confirm details and location we were told "sorry no classes we don't have enough people" Really JUAN OJEDA? Not even a courtesy phone call? We wasted almost two months now we have to wait until July 14th to start another class at a real college. What a joke, You should stop offering the class and wasting people's time.The worst part is that when I called to question when it might be available he won't even answer the phone or about a dozen messages left since Tuesday.Do yourself a favor and just go to The Illinois Restaurant Assn. downtown.
