Graduation Rate

Loading...
76%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Texas Christian University graduation rate is above the national average.

76% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Texas Christian 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 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

Great school to get an education from. Got my bachelor's from there while playing football. Small classrooms, caring teachers, and a state of the art campus, can't ask for more!

Overall Rating:

There's nothing Christian about this place. This is a very greedy college that doesn't take time for their students. The dean on liberal arts worships Elvis not Jesus. They spend over a million dollars in flowers while the less fortunate students struggle to stay there and study. Go somewhere else! There's cheaper schools that teach the same thing.
