Graduation Rate

Loading...
80%
ABOVE AVERAGE

St Mary's College of Maryland graduation rate is above the national average.

80% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to St Mary's College of Maryland 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 educational institutions.

arguably the worst college I have ever seen, if given the chance go to Anne Arundel Community College for two years so you can go to a reputable University such as UMD

It's a great college. I am a freshman here and loving it! The classes are great and it's better than high school. The atmosphere is amazing. The sunsets are great too.

Overall Rating:

For me, SMC was the best choice to get the diverse education I wanted. From traditional humanities courses to deeply scientific understanding from Profs Bob Paul, Walter Hatch, Paul Blanchette, and Al Hovland. Thank you all for teaching not what but how to think, thoughtfully and creatively. It made Graduate school in Organic Chemistry at Texas A&M easy and prepared me for necessary career evolution.
