Graduation Rate

Loading...
58%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Trinity Christian College graduation rate is above the national average.

58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Trinity Christian College 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 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 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:

I'm currently a freshman at CHSAS (Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences) and Trinity is definitely one of my top schools that I intend on applying due to a college fair I recently attended. Amazing school and definitely and amazing academic culture that I one day hope to be apart of.

Overall Rating:

It sounds like a College that most would like to attend because of the academic atmosphere! It's small, but great in all areas of academia!

Overall Rating:

The only problem I have is that the mascot of a "Christian" collage is a devil. A troll is a demon. I really don't want that sticker of a devil troll in my home for any reason. That should be changed and it is the only thing that I see is wrong and disturbing. These "little" things matter a whole lot in the real world.

Overall Rating:

As a college I have to say they have done a great job. Especially the business department, professors and culture are wonderful. Lately they have been improving as a college in many ways, so kudos to them for that.

Overall Rating:

Awesome place to learn and great professors who are more than willing to help and get to know you. There are great dorms with a lot of space and a pretty relaxed campus atmosphere but if you want more excitement you can make it happen as well. Great education, science and business programs as well. I took off one star only because of some of the girls here formed an annoying blond christian group who are super fake but that's only a small portion of our amazing students on campus. I found my best friends here and I am so thankful I went here Lots of intelligent students who are ready to learn and better serve our Lord out in the world.
