Graduation Rate


Schreiner University graduation rate is below the national average.

42% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Schreiner University 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

It's a very pretty campus, has small classes, and some of the professors are really good. I can't urge you enough though not to go to this school. You'll probably never meet a worse student population-- I don't speak for everyone of course, but the vast majority of students are extremely immature. Stuff gets stolen for no reason, gossip everywhere, and plenty of mean people. Frat boys think they're God's chosen and sorority girls are awful. Not too long ago the bigger fraternity was suspended and then disbanded because of all the hazing and misconduct that was going on. There are racists aplenty. It's basically a stereotypical high school because of the small body of students. Add the snobbery that comes with the ridiculous tuition and you have Schreiner. Speaking of tuition, it's definitely not worth the cost. They advertise free books but it's really factored into tuition, and you don't even get to keep them. Any scholarship you get from the school is really nothing, nearly everyone gets one so it just looks like you're getting a good deal. There's something you pay called the "Schreiner Experience Fee," which basically goes towards a trip abroad if you have enough money to afford it. If not, oh well, more money for the school. The school values aesthetic improvements to the campus over practical ones-- such as nicer entrances over proper sidewalks. The food is overpriced and gross (not all the time though), and they'll do anything to get more money out of you. This week is "food waste week" or something, where they pretend to care about the food you waste and how it can help people, when really it's just cutting into their profits. There used to be a comment board, but if you left anything remotely negative on it the food staff would just take it down because they don't actually care about improving their service. Security loves to give tickets when you're in the "wrong" parking lot, even if it's storming (it gets them money). Speaking of parking lots, the school doesn't have adequate parking and you're expected to walk everywhere. The staff loves to belittle the students who complain, but none of the staff have to walk from one end of campus to the other in bad weather, or when they're sick. Most of the professors are nice but the actual staff at the school can be really rude and unhelpful-- a select few can be sexist towards women. Now, I'm not saying you won't get a good education, because you might. You might have some good times and might meet good people-- I met the love of my life here. But why pay so much when you can go somewhere better that won't have nearly as many issues?

Love the school, students and faculty! Came to Schreiner innially because of the scholarship money, then I discovered how much the faculty and staff truly wants a student to succeed. They will work towards the student's strengths to help them flourish in the classroom and in life.
