Graduation Rate

43% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Texas Woman's 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 indicator 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.

Honestly, this school doesn't even teach. They just scream their liberal beliefs at you nonstop. Seriously. Non stop. They feel the need to push their ideaology on all their students. Usually I don't like to give bad reviews but I've never been in any atmosphere so dark as twu. That aside, the literal education was very low quality. I was very studious and got out feeling like I didn't get a degree! Education professors gave minimal effort assignments and you learning nothing. It was awful. Maybe it's better for different majors. Even the graduation speech was just a lady pushing her liberal viewpoints like they were facts. Very angry bitter feminist school. I'm all for woman's rights but this school is like the definition of the radical far, far left in school form. This school is very against Christians and Biblical views. My Christian friend went there too and was so shoved their wordly beliefs that she started preaching the same stuff just because he professors told her. She's not even following Christ anymore! Very bad feeling atmosphere. I mean I get that it's a public school and not a private Christian school but it's like no other public school I've ever been to. Even the "Christian" clubs on campus advertised s-x nights. I went to watch a school play and it was as dirty as an R rated movie. Too many professors abusing their chance to teach young people as a way to push their humanistic beliefs and far left ideaology. This school needs serious prayer :'(

This is truly a great, smaller university. I love the smaller class sizes and the professors seem to know their course extremely well. I wish the nursing school wasnt so hard to get into/competitive, but it is one of the best for a reason
