Graduation Rate

Loading...
55%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Unity College graduation rate is above the national average.

55% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Unity 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 an extensive 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Unity College

Overall Rating:

Mostly use the public library here, since we are residents of Unity. Helpful library staff, plenty of free parking, nice scenic grounds.

Overall Rating:

I could not have designed a more ideal secondary education and college experience for my daughter than what life at Unity already provides. Out of this world support and genuinely caring staff and faculty who actually KNOW the kids well. That kind of investment drives the students to achieve and succeed. My daughter pounding out two BS degrees in 3.5 years wouldn't happen otherwise! No one gets lost here. Such NICE, considerate, friendly students (self-policing of improper behaviors impressed me)! VERY SAFE campus with an ample menu of healthy activities and often locally grown food. Dorms and cafe are excellent. The town is lovely, especially if outdoor recreation, farming, hunting, or fishing are on your to-do list. The Amish markets are great! The students even visit an Amish farm and learn about their way of life and food preservation practices. I am delighted my teen developed into a talented young leader with polished, real-world professional skills applicable in innumerable fields. I am amazed she is working in her degree field PRIOR to graduation. Plenty of hands-on valuable projects, challenges, and service experiences in the course of normal study and student life. This is nothing like my five year Big 10 university education -- I really missed out upon seeing what Unity delivers. Being a "Unity Grad" puts one far ahead of the competing field.

Unity college is a great college for people who love the environment and want to make a difference in the world. it is a small school and fairly new only 50 years old. They have Wildlife education and Con and law as well.

Overall Rating:

This school stands at the forefront of environmental education. The reason for this is because of the diverse community that attend the school. If there is one thing that lacks in the environmental movement, it is the collaboration of law enforcement with concerned citizens. A common misconception is that our school is divided by these differences. The truth is that we are all working toward the same goal, protecting our natural resources.If you are looking to study science, policy, law enforcement, renewable energy or any other job relating to our land, this is the place for you. We do more than just learn here, we get involved by connecting with the town, state, and federal government to address current issues. We offer our skills and expertise to groups who need assistance. We work as a unit to move this earth in a better direction. You can play a part in slowing our growing environmental problems by joining us at this innovative, progressive, institution of higher learning.This review was posted by a student and was not orchestrated or encouraged by the school itself. Everything I have said is true.
