    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    22%
    BELOW AVERAGE

    Santa Fe University of Art and Design graduation rate is below the national average.

    22% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Santa Fe University of Art and Design 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 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 schools.

      Overall Rating:

      Not that anyone can actually go here anymore considering they are shuttering the doors because it's for profit school that spends more money on people who recruit than they do on supplies, and teachers. This should be a great, safe, school to go to but it wasn't, it isn't. UNM has far more resources for the most part (no they don't have a professional movie studio but they have a theater where they show the latest movies to students for little to no money) they have pope joy hall.. they have film classes that include learning how to use 35 mm old school film to red camera's. The tuition is far cheaper and wow.. there is just no comparison and I did go to this school. There is a reason laureate has most of it schools in foreign countries where they don't have strict rules on safety, disabilities, accreditation. Just say no to any for profit art school!

      DON'T GET RIPPED OFF! Some of the teachers are great. The admin not so much. I attended for only one semester during my time as a college student, working in film was fun and I was doing well. Then it came down to the finances, . It wasn't until I had attended this school that I was completely student debt free. Before I started I was talking to the finance department and specifically asked them about the total cost per semester. Because if it was to much I wasn't going to be attending school, up to this point I had been working to pay out of my pocket along with any scholarships I could get for school. So finances were a big factor in making my choice to attend. I specifically asked after scholarships and fasfa what would I need to pay out of pocket so I could write them a check at the end of each semester. Keeping in mind that I had talked to them about me wanting to stay away from student loans. They replied and I quote "let's see, after EVERTHING you'll only be paying about $3,000 out of pocket" so "I said okay great!" I found out at the end of the semester what they meant by "after everything." It included scholarships, fasfa, as well as all the student LOANS that I was eligible for. They never mentioned student loans out of the first conversation i had with them before the semester started, if it would have been made clear about all the student loans i never would have attended this school. After one 16 week semester I walked away with around $10,000 in student debt. I can also vouch for at least 2 other possible students that were given different unclear numbers by the school when looking to attend as well.

      I had five really exceptional teachers in particular that made it worth while and i loved their classes, I had a few others that I worked really hard for and got the grades I earned respectively, the rest as well as the administration were (like bricks tied to your ankles trying to keep you stuck at the institution as long as possible by ANY means but let's just say they were) lacking. There was as much good as there was there was bad but the biases, man the biases, cover ups and mismanagement of both faculty and students, wow. But honestly that's any major instituion I suppose. I attended SFUAD for 3and a half years and I earned my BFA in studio art. So many improvements had been made since I started as a freshman there in 2011 and graduated in 2014, even during the time I spent out there for another 3 years working in santa fe, things were really starting to look up. Lol these comments and the ones I've seen elsewhere from perspectives make me smile, so bright eyed and bushy tailed just the epitome of an optimistic prospective freshman/student so naive.

      The administration will probably ignore calls until you either talk to tbem personally or til they happily call to collect their money. The photography teachers are great and super encouraging but the price of tuition does not show when it comes to the support from administration. They charge for any fee they can such as a parking sticker which they don't tell you about along with other nonsense. All in all the teachers are good, courses are acceptable but the administration isn't the best because how disorganized and malevolent they are.The students are lit though #gang gang

      I have not yet attended this college but I am really looking forward to it. However, reading these reviews are making me think twice. What the campus looks like doesn't bother me I will be there to learn. I would have to say though I would like teachers who aren't disrespectful. I only would like to reach my goal as a professional photographer. The website was NO help at all for the information I wanted to consume. Contemplating whether or not I should call to find out; Even though there is a website that should contain ALL information for First Year Students or Students with interest.
