Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator 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.

I attended this school from 91-93. I was there when Tupac came and Magic Johnson. I fell in love with the family unity that I felt while here. Me and some of the people I met are still in contact over 20 years strong. I am now back as an adult learner which is awesome. The professors are awesome and learned. They care about what they are doing even with limited resources. The school needs a lot, is tru, but that all falls back on the ALUMNI. Help make this school great again because not only does it have a rich history but it offers a brighter future to some who would never of had a chance to feel college life. If you went to Saint Augustine's College/University then support it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have seen a lot of successful people that had their start here so now is your chance to allow another kid enjoy the "GOOD" that the school has to offer.

Drove through on a summer Saturday. I met the President and Vice President while passing through. If you can feel love for an HBCU then you know the challenges these men face daily. Money is indeed needed but it was clear to me that those men love St. Augustine and want to see it flourish. If I had pot of gold I would share it with them to see St.Augustine shine like the bright star that it is. I'm a SCSU Bulldog but folks that know about HBCU Pride?!!! Yep...I've got it for all that they have done and continue to do. God bless them all.
