Graduation Rate

Loading...
56%
ABOVE AVERAGE

St Catherine University graduation rate is above the national average.

56% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to St Catherine 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 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 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for St Catherine University

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I took a PSEO women's studies class here. The whole campus is super feminist and you are forced to swallow your views to accommodate other students. Personally I loved my professor but the other students got on my nerves. Very accommodating staff but they also don't challenge you to not be a victim.

Overall Rating:

it was cool til a security guard shot himself with his own gun that he shouldnt have had on campus in the first place. then blamed him getting shot on a "black male"

Overall Rating:

Hysteria and modern cultish Social Justice oppression olympics indoctrination. The campus is an example of the guise extreme feminism has... outwardly looks nice but inside everything/building has a cockroach infestation or toxic materials in the connections and basement.

Overall Rating:

So forever grateful I was able to spend 4 amazing years at this school. I am not sure what the other people reviewing recently are talking about, as I felt the community at this campus is very welcoming and friendly. It is a catholic school so they do teach and emphasize catholic studies, however there are many classes that center around other beliefs. I never felt like my beliefs were being stomped on, and I am not catholic.Also, if you are worried about your social life and getting the college experience, don't be! You can definitely still have the college experience and attend St. Kate's. The campus always has activities going on, and there are many schools in the area.I would definitely recommend this university!

Overall Rating:

Good college if you're looking to be a nursing major. If not, go somewhere else. Was definitely not worth what I paid for it. Also not gonna lie, felt a bit more like a bible camp than a college.
