Graduation Rate

Loading...
23%
BELOW AVERAGE

Stillman College graduation rate is below the national average.

23% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Stillman College 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 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 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.

Love It

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

I wish I could give a -100 star rating. This has been the worst college (if that’s what you want to call it) that I’ve ever attended. There are a million things that I can review about but I’ll limit that to my top issues I’ve had personally.1. ADMINISTRATION. The administration here are a joke and are the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with. I mean some have the nastiest attitudes on and off the phone, are nonchalant about student issues, don’t return calls or emails…just don’t care. The business office just puts anyone in there to handle student business (ie. Lowerclassmen who have the slightest clue on how to conduct business). The admissions office is a joke. I’ve tried to have a conversation with a lady at the front desk, she didn’t even have the decency to stop smacking and have a conversation about important paperwork with me. Don’t try to call the business or admissions office after classes have ended to talk about transcript requests etc …they wont answer. As well as, you need to ‘follow up’ with them when they say they will do something for you regarding transcript requests to be sent off because they won’t send them unless you hassle them.2. COLLEGE GROUNDS. The college is old, I get that but the buildings are literally falling apart. The classrooms have holes in the ceilings, rainwater that comes through, desks that barely hold themselves together, out of date lab equipment (60% of that which doesn’t work), mold, mildew & let’s not forget what ever critters decide to come visit you that day. The dorms need serious improvement too. But I guess the faculty and staff here are more worried about driving Mercedes, BMW’s and Camero’s rather than providing a quality education to their students.3. MONEY! I hope you are able to pay your student bill in the exact amount that your statement says, because if you are looking for a refund check…you might not get it! I can’t count how many stories I’ve heard about them stealing money, saying it went to ‘other fees’ than giving it back. Also, if you decide to go part time, be prepared for 3-5 people quoting you different prices for how much a credit hour costs because obviously nobody knows much about prices.4. FOOD. One cafeteria, if you don’t like the choices…oh well! The food reminds you of when you were in elementary school lunch lines..bland and nasty most of the time. Also, they close at 6:30 so I hope you have food in your rooms!5. EDUCATION. This is the saddest part. They dumb down the education so bad, using out of date resources. Most days there was no point of even going to classes because of how bad the teaching is there. Most of the professors don’t care if you learn or not as long as they get paid. Most lectures come straight from the books and their whole process of education is about 20 years behind.If you want quality education at a great price in Tuscaloosa choose Shelton or Alabama! Shelton is amazing if you don’t want to spend the high prices at Alabama and you are valued there as well! It’s just a matter of time before this ‘college’ closes for good.

The food is horrible. The staff is VERY rude. I would not recommend this school to anyone! Campus looks bad as well as the dorms.

For the most part the classes aren't too hard. There are a few that require many hours of studying, but even these aren't too difficult. However, the professors are another story. As a biology major, I found that most of the professor (the ones I've had the misfortune of encountering) are either incompetent, grumpy, inconsiderate, or a mix of it all! Although there are some, it wasn't too often I came across a professor who treated students respectfully and as adults. Outside of class life, there isn't much to do. Parties are thrown by the greek/nongreek organizations occasionally, but other than that the "night life" is pretty dull. The co-ed visitation is for Wynn/ Hay Hall residents only and is limited to strict terms and conditions. The dorms are old and falling apart, especially King Hall. The college's website is often down, which at times is very inconvenient. The cafeteria basically rotates the same 7 meals. Thursday and Friday during are the best days to go, which are "chicken day" and "fish day" respectively. The cafeteria is the only eating spot on campus and it closes at 6:30. Everything else (stadium, hay center, wynn center, etc.) usually closes around 9 or 10. I will not even get started on all the problems with dealing with financial aid. I have a full scholarship and still have problems with financial aid messing up my paperwork. If you do decide to come here please beware, and remember you've been warned!
