Graduation Rate

Loading...
66%
ABOVE AVERAGE

The College of Saint Rose graduation rate is above the national average.

66% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to The College of Saint Rose 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 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 institutions.

Great place, amazing courses, good food

Overall Rating:

Overpriced and cliquey, but nice school with great faculty.Graduated with BA in Sociology in 2010.Pros- very small class sizes. Around 30 for core liberal arts education courses, 15-20 for more focused courses in your major. I feel like straight out of high school, this is what I needed. Most of the faculty is great. The school is small so there is definitely a sense of community and you will see the same classmates in many different courses. The facilities like the auditorium, gym, cafeteria, library, bookstore, laboratories, etc- are awesome and were just recently renovated. The school is in a fairly convenient location (walking distance to downtown Albany). You can get buy without a car- but might not be a bad idea to get a beater for weekend outings and running errands as the Capital Region is not super accessible.Cons- For what it is, its very expensive. Saint Rose has many great programs, but it is essentially a "teacher factory". Most teachers in New York are going to be paying their loans forever (if they can find a job). Id steer away unless you are a rich kid, or getting one hell of a scholarship deal. The dorm/ housing situation is horrible. Theirs two nice dorm halls (Lima, Alumni Hall) which are decent and right on campus but do not have central air conditioning- then a hodge podge of private houses scattered around- then Brubacher Hall- a late 1800s sanitarium style dump that should be condemned about a half mile away. My advice would be to put up with dorm life your freshman year so you can make friends and form cliques- then rent an apartment together from then on. Its cheaper than staying in a dorm, and you won't have to deal with RAs and rules. The student body is very non-diverse and cliquey. Its probably about 80% white upper middle class kids either local from the capital region or from the Poughkeepsie area. Despite becoming coed in the 70s, its still about a 2/1 female to male ratio if not higher. The campus is nestled right in the middle of downtown Albany, and spread out crossed multiple blocks so lots of random people cut through the campus- creating a security risk.Overall mixed opinions but Im glad I went.

I used to work here but I can't anymore because of my seizures. I was a great staff member. The professors were so nice, so were the co-workers, and the boss. This is a great college to go, and work at.

I feel like one star would be harsh, but three stars would be too nice. My experience with Saint Rose is that it is, like many colleges in this country: overpriced. That is a common complaint with all colleges, but it's more than that. I think the value of the education you get there doesn't really match what you are/will be (if you are taking loans) paying for. I feel the education at Saint Rose is not preparing the younger generation to enter the workforce or the real world. The school boasts great academics and don't get me wrong, some classes have been very objective based and informative. However, some classes made me feel like I was still in high school/the public education system. As in, 1) They aren't that challenging, 2) They don't teach me skills and knowledge that I'll need in the future and 3) It feels like some of the classes had a larger agenda to them (trying to convince students rather than teach). Besides the academics, the campus is nice. Personally, Albany, NY is not my cup of tea but for someone coming from the NYC area (which there's a lot at SR), it might be nicer to be in a much smaller city. Besides that, I think most adults see college campuses kind of deteriorating in terms of the academics and culture. I don't need to go into details about that. I think many adults and people in the workforce understand what I mean though.

Overall Rating:

My decision to come to The College of Saint Rose was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I absolutely loved every moment of my past four years here. The small class sizes make it easy to get the "one-on-one" individualized learning from a professor who actually knows you by first name, rather than by a number. Every instructor I've had was PHENOMENAL. Each lecture is interesting, and has always provided me with actual, real-world knowledge that I am already finding myself applying every day within my professional career. Overall, I feel I have received a stellar education at a very reasonable, and affordable, cost. Thank you!
