Graduation Rate

Loading...
33%
BELOW AVERAGE

Union College graduation rate is below the national average.

33% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Union 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 index 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 schools.

One of the most beautiful schools we have seen. There is so much history and you can see pretty much every building from the middle of a Rugby 🏉 field. Reminds of being in Central Park. Everything is nestled so close together and impeccably clean.
