Loading...

BELOW AVERAGE

Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville graduation rate is below the national average.

50% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville 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 index 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. 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.

Overall Rating:

I am SIUE MMR program graduate. Good university, miss those days...

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

All the professors are great, beyond qualified, and wonderful people. Most of the students are mediocre or dumb. SIUE is very cheap and has a high acceptance rate, so I guess my expectations should not be high.

Overall Rating:

The computer system in the financial aid department causes an error and automatically boots my son from his classes this semester. They straighten out the financial end of things but refuse to correct his classes. According to their policies they are not responsible for their own computer system. So my question is obvious; who is responsible? What is most upsetting about the situation is they refuse to take ownership of it. Now my son has to go to each professor and beg them for a spot in their class.

I did my undergraduate and grad school at SIUE. I am currently working full time at another university in the Admissions's Office as the Director of International Recruitment. I came back to visit my friends, host families and some great professors in Edwardsville in September 2016 and I left a proposal letter to the chancellor about increasing the international students enrollment for SIUE. The secretary took it and said she would give it to the chancellor. I have not heard even a single word from either the Chancellor or the secretary. I enjoyed my time at SIUE. Being an international student myself in the past I would be happy to share ideas and thoughts with the school on how to increase the international students population, but I am very sad that no one even bothered to acknowledge or reply about my proposal letter.
