Graduation Rate

Loading...
35%
BELOW AVERAGE

Troy University graduation rate is below the national average.

35% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Troy 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 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 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.

Scam artist. I followed my advisors advice and ended up with a 2500 dollar debt owed to the school. What a fine upstanding establishment.

Great institution for education One Troy!

Overall Rating:

As a former Troy student I found this institution very difficult to stay with. They discontinued the degree plan I was working towards, raised tuition after I left active duty and sent my financial refund to the wrong place.I believed in the reputation of Troy University. From Jan- Oct I was sorely disappointed.

Overall Rating:

I graduated from Troy University (then Troy State University) in 1979. I am extremely proud of Troy. I am especially indebted to the group of accounting professors that taught me everything I needed to know about accounting. Their dedication to our success is unequaled. I am proud to call myself a Trojan.Miguel Rivera Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired
