Graduation Rate

Loading...
59%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Saint Joseph's College of Maine graduation rate is above the national average.

59% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Saint Joseph's College of Maine 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 indicator 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 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.

I have tried to rent the pool there for my 6 years old daughter and have had no success! I had first tried to set a date and it was all booked for that day. I was told about another date and went to confirm but nobody answered or returned my call. When I did finially reach them they had booked someone else. I have now called another couple of times and nobody again has returned my call. Totally unprofessional and now I will try to book somewhere else before my daughter's birthday passes. Btw I am not someone that usually complains.

The academic advisors are wonderful but that is about it. If you are a Theology student avoid this place for the sake of your faith and education. All of the instruction I received was either heterodox or flat out heretical. It was so painful to get through. I will not be doing another semester there. Also the Nuns who run the school should consider taking up the Habit that they abandoned.

Overall Rating:

Disorganized with a lot of excuses and likely that excuse is... You are to blame... Academic Advisor? It's a revolving door, don't get used to anyone in particular. They do not follow their own syllabus. You're lucky if you get pertinent feedback from instructors. Sometimes they are not involved at all! I question whether some of these people even know the material? I say this because they also use a third party for certain classes with an automated system. I could definitely continue on about this, but I will be taking my complaints beyond leaving feedback on google. I personally am a Roman Catholic and have attended five different catholic institutions, so, beyond taking my complaint to our government and regulatory groups, I will also complain to my church.

Overall Rating:

I'm afraid I'm not at all impressed with this College. I am taking online courses and my first class was designed by one person and implemented by another which caused confusion regarding the questions and discussion topics. On papers submitted there was little to no advise, comments, instruction, or criticism on content, only grammar. I enrolled one month prior to the start date of the second class to give me an extra month to work on the assignments but it's been a nightmare ordeal to get the college to process the grant money I am trying to use to pay for it. I enrolled two weeks ago and have left two phone messages and an email message for billing. Finally received a call back and am informed there's a form I need to fill out (don't recall doing this for my last class) to get it processed. Would have been helpful had I known about this form earlier, or at least been notified in response to my first email or phone call asking about the hold up. I'm very frustrated at this point as it's been almost 3 weeks now. The system for submitting assignments is cumbersome, and the professors use email to inform you of your grade, they don't even use the system students are required to use to submit. I expected a more streamlined and user friendly system considering the day and age in which we are living. I doubt I'll be taking anymore classes here. Very disappointed.

The campus bordering Sebago Lake is one of the prettiest anywhere. The faculty are devoted to their students. The Science Department was just awarded $657,000 by the National Science Foundation for science scholarships for incoming freshman. I love being in a community that lives the core values of the Sisters of Mercy. And you won't eat better food on any other campus!
