Graduation Rate

Loading...
16%
BELOW AVERAGE

University of Phoenix-Texas graduation rate is below the national average.

16% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Phoenix-Texas 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 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.

Overall Rating:

Leadership here does not listen to and take the students concerns seriously. Safety is not priority, Just to make everyone aware the school does not allow their student or faculty to bring weapons onto campus even if you are licensed. I guess they feel this is safer, and is there right, the problem is they are not willing to put proper signage to inform individuals not attending or working at the school they can't bring guns onto campus. Just just consider this when making your decision when attending school here, they are making people they know and trust sitting ducks, and trusting every Joe off the street to do as they wish. All they have to do is install two signs. Very poor school

The University was the absolute best college to prepare me for the business world. I graduated over 10 years ago, and it has given me the best platform for my successful career.Don't kid yourself. This is hard work, but the classes will guide you in the real world example of what you are getting your degree in.

This school is the poorest element of a school we have ever encountered they tell you that you are doing good then when it comes to time for semester to end they fail you. The best this school is good at is giving you a loan then telling you, that you have failed according to their telemarketers! Go to a real school this place is a scam not only did it do this to one person but 3 that i am aware of. I put my heart and sole to show my son he could do it then when it came time for semester grade they said sorry you failed and we need more money.

I love my school! I worked at a national bank in the Student Loan Dept for four years before attending U of P. It was ranked #1 amongst lenders, and was a preferred school for employees and potential employees as well. However, it wasn't until I experienced it as a student that I understood why. The campus is beautiful and well-maintained. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The teachers are experts in the field they teach (not just the text they're teaching from). The atmosphere is conducive to balancing all of the multiple priorities students have, not just academics. I like knowing that I can speak frankly with my advisors about issues that may interfere with my studies, and they will respond will ideas and options that can actually help. I could go on, but I'm running out of room! See for yourself. You won't regret it!
