Graduation Rate

Loading...
71%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Transylvania University graduation rate is above the national average.

71% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Transylvania 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 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.

Hello I am from Utah and everyone in Utah says This state is filled with losers and ***n***s. So when my Uncle came here he was mistreated because he was BLACK! That was 7 or 8 years ago so they MIGHT be racist.

Overall Rating:

Would certainly NOT recommend Transy to another parent or their young adult. Numerous issues, starting with the scheduling for a freshman - it was horrible. Frosh are stuck with worst profs as upper class gets first choice. There is very limited switching opportunities. A serious alcohol & drug problem is prevalent in the dorms which we experienced first hand. Reported to RA's & Residence Life and they did little to rectify situation. Also, very little to token security for dorms. So easy for a stranger to walk in and have access to any floors, this was disturbing. Save your money and look elsewhere.

Overall Rating:

This school let some no good white supremacist punk harass another student by posting her Facebook profile on a hate website when she did NOTHING wrong, and yet the school administration isn't doing a damn thing about it. How about maybe sticking up for the student and defend and protect her against bullying? I hope that there's a walkout among both students and the staff that is against this until administration protects her, and I also hope that administrators stop and think to themselves "Oh? She pays money to go here? Maybe that helps us make our salary" well, for now that is. If this school doesn't get shut down due to a loss of funding if enough people stand up for what is right.

Overall Rating:

There is a student in your school who feels unsafe as you protect another student who is inciting white supremacist hate groups, such as 10th crusade enthusiasts, to harass her and report her to ICE as she is a DACA recipient. After she came to the school with this it was decided the other students actions do not violate your non-discriminatory policy. Absolutely horrific that her fears and concerns are not valued enough for administrators to take action in ensuring her safety. I didn't know where to start in reaching out on her defense so this is my first step. Next I will find proper numbers to call and voice my concerns on this and I will encourage EVERY ONE I know to do the same.
