Graduation Rate

Loading...
71%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Wabash College graduation rate is above the national average.

71% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wabash College 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 indicator 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 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 schools.

Challenging, but worth it.

Overall Rating:

It's a bookstore that no longer sells books. And I had to pay $11 for shipping on a book that I was forced to buy for my science lab. 0/10 would not recommend.

Overall Rating:

Note re the complaint below about someone shouting, "Go Back to Iraq" ... If you were walking down the street in New York City and heard someone shout, "Kill Queen Elizabeth", you'd duck, right? Everything you hear is meant for you, right? Seems a tad self-centered, even a tad unreasonable. You didn't get to go to Wabash College, did you? I did and it served me VERY well during my 60-year work life recently ended. I'd do it again in a minute.

Overall Rating:

This place will challenge you, and it will not be easy. In no way should someone go in thinking it is easy but know that it is worth it. It is worth every class, every hour of studying, every lunchtime meeting. You will get to know your professors. They are not there to teach but to work WITH you and help you learn. Most professors don't have "office hours" but just lost their class schedule. If they aren't in a class you can find them.
