Graduation Rate

Loading...
39%
BELOW AVERAGE

Spalding University graduation rate is below the national average.

39% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Spalding 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 indicator doesn’t consider 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.

The school lies a lot. They will say what ever it takes to get you to come here even if it is not true. If you're an artist don't come. They promise studios which you won't get and they have rights to steal YOUR art.

I toured the campus here and had many debate competitions here as well, but there really isn't all that much this school offers. It's a good starting place for college education, but if you get the chance to move out do so

I have been at this school for 6 years; first as an undergraduate and now as a graduate. The small classes and individual attention are the best. I simply cannot say enough about how much support and genuine engagement I have experienced. This is the best school and I am happy I chose Spalding.
