Loading...
28%
BELOW AVERAGE

University of Holy Cross graduation rate is below the national average.

28% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Holy Cross 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 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 educational institutions.

The best school for anyone that is looking for smaller classrooms, and instructors that care. I absolutely love this place!

Overall Rating:

Do not attend school here. The absolute worst experience I have ever had. They only care about getting your money and nothing more. If you have a child do NOT bring them or you will be asked to make them completely quiet or leave. Staff is plain rude. For a school with the Virgin Mary all over the place, they hold none of her ideals. The school simply needs to change from a Catholic School or be shut down.
