Graduation Rate

Loading...
40%
BELOW AVERAGE

University of the Cumberlands graduation rate is below the national average.

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

Overall Rating:

Don't go there, I gave it one star because I had to give a star to write a review. As somebody says this college is an evil and not understanding. Like someone said they are very narrow minded, I understand we need to follow an APA format but we should not be treated as high school kids for each and every word, if some one is from different culture and trying to understand the format and language here. They will humiliate you. My 22 month old daughter was hospitalized and I asked for a grace time after so many begging she gave me some time so I submitted each week's homework but was unaware of an attachment to the assignment. the instructor did not realize it until one week and after one week she emails me that she is gonna fail me. I mean do you know failing a person might mean a lot for the future of that person, we have so many responsibilities of house, job, kids. Be a little pitiful. Very narrow-minded and humiliating environment here. I was gonna recommend it to some of my family and friends but thinking of myself leaving but I am stuck because of my little daughter.

Overall Rating:

Quaint little Baptist school. Very challenging curriculum. The school does require religious involvement as a prerequisite for graduation. As an African-American young woman moving from a very diverse, sunny, and leftist Los Angeles county, to a 98% white, mostly conservative, and cold Kentucky county, the transition was hard for me, but I was not treated unfairly because of my race or political differences. My only issue was with the athletic department. I was supposed to walk-on to the women's basketball team. The coach kept pushing me off, saying she'd get into contact with me. I didn't want to miss my opportunity to enroll and receive my academic scholarship, so I did. I get all the way up to Kentucky only to learn that the roster was full. I was highly upset, considering I could've stayed home and likely played basketball at another school. Other than that occurrence, I had a fine experience at UC.
