    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    52%

    52% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Southern New Hampshire 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 a huge 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 educational institutions.

      I was interested in taking online classes to get my masters degree so I requested information on their website. Since then they have called me FOUR times every single day. I know what field I want my masters in and I haven’t settled on a specific degree so I was gathering information from multiple online programs before I made a decision but the constant calls and harassment from SNHU admissions department has turned me off from wanting further information.

      If I could give this university no stars I would. I did everything I could to get all of the paperwork in to start this semester. All that was needed was to verify my identity and my address. well i moved in the middle of the application process and my address didn't match the address on my drivers license. I provided a month to month lease agreement since none of the utilities or house payment is in my name.They said they could not verify my identity. They dismissed me from the University and when i asked for a few more days to get all of the correct paperwork in for the next semester they told me that all dismissals were final and they could not release any other information to me. This is the worst school by far i have ever tried to apply for. I even told the financial aid department that I wanted to speak with the administration office about this matter and I was told that wasn't possible.

      I am pursuing my bachelor's degree as a full-time working professional and I have found the online program to be fantastic. While it's true some instructors are better and more responsive than others, that is also true for any school. I like the 8-week terms and I find the course layout very manageable. Each term you know exactly what to expect and when to anticipate a busy week. I considered several other online schools and I have not been disappointed with my decision!
