Graduation Rate

Loading...
39%
BELOW AVERAGE

Upper Iowa University graduation rate is below the national average.

39% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Upper Iowa University 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 take into consideration 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.

never been here before, but I may attend school here in the future.

Overall Rating:

This is the best university I have ever studied. The only reason I transfer was because I couldn't be in cold place. If only the area wasn't that cold and I was comfortable being in cold, I swear to god this is where I would go. Friendly people, nice professors, beautiful college, less people and more attention and lot of other benefits. Professor knows you by your name and anytime you need any help, they are there for you. If you have any issue, just call the university and you will be warmly welcomed. I always loved their gym and swimming pool. Good in sports, awesome professors, clean and motivational and inspiring people and also chance of lots of internship. What else would you expect from a university!!

For a smaller college I was surprised at the numerous new buildings and amazing campus grounds! Definitely the big college feel but with a small school focus and education. I also realized that they were very military veteran focused. Excellent!
