Graduation Rate

Loading...
40%
BELOW AVERAGE

University of Baltimore graduation rate is below the national average.

40% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Baltimore 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 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 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.

I've been here since my freshman year and all I can say is that if you want a college experience where your main focus is learning and following a passion, you will fit right in here. If you are near a MARC Penn Line stop, all you have to do is get off at Penn Station and walk across the street to class. Super convenient.
