Graduation Rate

Loading...
71%
ABOVE AVERAGE

SUNY Oneonta graduation rate is above the national average.

71% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to SUNY Oneonta 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 indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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 schools.

Overall Rating:

Personally, I see a lot of people complaining but, they should be more objective. I was very displeased with the quality of the Chemistry and Physics departments (as these were my original focus areas). However, I absolutely fell in love with the Environmental Science and Geography department. It's a tight knit community and those that complain about this department are typically those whom didn't know what courses to choose or those that would be most helpful. They are very flexible, I was able to obtain a Dual B.S. degree, with a minor, plus technical skills courses, as well as, participate in great local internships that not only gave me professional experience but, class credit as well. My only complaint is the lack of graduate funding provided to SUNY Schools by NYS. They have great masters programs with lots of potential, especially a great location for their Biology and Lake Management programs. However, without much funding available it's hard to attract graduate students. Overall, if you stay smart and realize you're there to prepare for your future then you should do well. Attitude is a large contributor to one's success.

If you have any sort of a longing for the truth about what it means to be human, what is best worth pursuing in this life, how or why one should continue living, and want to gain new perspectives on components of the human condition such as love and suffering and what they have to teach us then a liberal arts degree at a university isn't what you're looking for. It's a dead end turn in the maze that takes four years to go down and about that to backtrack.They don't teach you how to feel or create or understand poetry, literature, philosophy or art. They over-analyze everything and take the life out of it. Writers, philosophers, theologians, and artists don't need anyone to speak for them. They create a work to do all of its own teaching. If it needed to be disassembled and assigned labels in order to be properly understood it would've come like that.You can take every course offered in the Liberal Arts and never once have a meaningful discussion about what it means to be a human being. If you try to take the conversation there the professor will just throw deconstruction on the table pretending like it's not the limp, played out hat-trick that it is. Or they'll run what you said through any of the other critical lenses, tie it up and hand it to you like a balloon animal without anybody gaining anything for it.You will be so heavily burdened with the task of disassembling the reading in a way that will best suit that specific professor's subjective guidelines that you'll have little to no time to contemplate what the writer really thought about what it means to be here, who we should be, and what is best worth pursuing in this life.You'll be overcome with guilt for not turning in technical critical essays about arbitrary nuances in the reading because you "wasted" that time discussing the material with other people, applying it to your own world perspective, and growing from it.The careers of most professors in Liberal Arts departments are built on the delusion that they are necessary or even remotely efficient at effectively endowing the population with a useful understanding of the Humanities. The lessons they offer are reading assignments based on books that are already available at your local library. And The Great Courses will fulfill all your lecture needs for a fraction of the cost and on your schedule.As an alumni I find myself disgusted by the fact that we are leading so many young people into a liberal arts track which serves only to give the technical skills needed to perpetuate this system to the handful of students who will actually become professors. As for the rest of the liberal arts majors, the vast majority: with little to no ability or need to effectively apply any of the intellectual traditions that we purport to teach, we have left them uncompensated intellectually for a huge financial risk (four years of lost wages if not tuition as well). A risk we convince them to take before their frontal lobes are even fully developed -- with a wink and a nod to a party culture that lures them in.It's the exploitation of a vulnerable, naive population of young adults for no other reason than to artificially necessitate these tenured liberal arts professorships. A PhD is a humble, respectable title when it is not being used as a golden goose. Don't feed into it. Choose a STEM major or go to a trade school and pursue your intellect and art on the side.
