    ABOVE AVERAGE

    The New England Conservatory of Music graduation rate is above the national average.

    87% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to The New England Conservatory of Music 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 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.

      Performers are well trained, good sound qualities, nice and clean hall. You need to come early as you can to find parking. They have paid parking, but if you come early enough you can find street parking nearby Shawnut St or Tremont St. They need to update their bathroom.
