    65% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Minnesota-Morris completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

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 picture. 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.

      Full all out liberal nut jobs, better to send your kids to learn from crackheads from the streets than these hypocritical sacks of feces. Unconstitutional ban of theor students first amendment rights, these Mis-Educators of hypocrisy should forever be banned from teaching, and if I had my way, severally punished in the harshest form legally possible.

      If you can't say tranny, this is NOT a good learning institution, just a political lap dog. I suggest to my kids to avoid this place.

      Overall Rating:

      UMM is a wonderful college that challenges its students with rigorous courses and makes students aware and accepting of others while learning about themselves. Morris is a great small town to learn how to "grow up" in. It's got e everything you need.

      Overall Rating:

      UMM offers everything you'd want from a small, private liberal arts college, but because it's a public school it costs considerably less. I studied music here, and I couldn't recommend this department highly enough--particularly if you're interested in piano (incredible instructors) or composition (lots of enthusiasm for student works). The campus itself is beautiful, the student community is intimate and fun, and the professors are super accessible. I'd give the place six stars if I could.

      Overall Rating:

      Both of my boys attended this college. It is the gem of the UM system. As others have noted, the class sizes are small and the profs actually do the teaching, getting to know their students in a way that can't happen in a graduate research facility such as the main campus in the Twin Cities. Tuition is very affordable which was a bonus for this single parent. Although there is some typical college town alcohol abuse, neither of my kids came across hard drugs. NO METH!! If you are looking for a progressive, environmentally conscious, diverse group of people, Morris may be just the place for you!
