Graduation Rate


University of Dallas graduation rate is above the national average.

68% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Dallas 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 institutions.

Amazing school. I would go here every day to study for my medical school entrance exam and the library staff would never tell me to leave, even though I was not a student at this institution. This place will forever hold a dear place in my heart. Thank you for providing me space to study and further my education. I'm in medical school now and may be using your facilities in the near future. Thanks!

You know the 1 and 2 star reviews you see down the list? they are from the same person in different accounts. The current reviews are very accurate. I have my youngest son there right now and it is a great environment of virtuous, non-judgmental people. Yes, it is expensive. And yes, your child can get a good scholarship if they work hard in high school too. The degree you get from here is a degree that can be used anywhere because your mind is so well informed and your thinking is critically clear. Save money and sacrifice to pay the tuition. This is a REAL college.

Top-notch academics; by the time you graduate you'll be surprised at how much you know. My UD education made the the world richer, better, and bigger-- not with fancy programs or buildings, and not with try-hard school-sponsored activities-- but with great books and excellent professors.

Overall Rating:

Challenging for the start to finish. I constantly learned new things day in and day out. Anyone looking to broaden their horizons, I highly recommend attending UD. Academically and Athletics challenge you every step of the way while teaching you life skills that will benefit you for anything you decide to do in life!!!
