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 index doesn’t take into account 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.

Thank You Ms Wade's. I came asap out of HS. I went from C's and getting by to 3.8 GPA. To this day I use everything I learned at Wade College with my AA.

I recently graduated from Wade College with an AA in Fashion Design and I’m currently pursuing my BA at Wade. I love it here. Transferring to Wade was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The staff is knowledgeable and help equip you with the skills needed to truly be successful in the work force. The courses are accelerated, however I never felt like I wasn’t gaining a thorough education. Wade college is very current in the way they approach teaching, and give you opportunities to start working in your field while attending the college. Success of the students is at the core of Wade College.

Horrible school. Go somewhere else. Their whole selling point is being inside the Dallas market center. I didn't learn anything and the quality of the education was poor. My highschool work was more difficult than their so called college level course work. Outside of Dallas, no one has heard of this school. Ms. Wade's family members run the school. She still wears gaudy clothing and jewelry from another era. Most of the attention was paid to students of a certain race or background however minorities are pursued for their ability to receive federal financial aid. This is nothing more than a finishing school for those who can't figure out a better college major. The fashion industry is tough. I've worked in the industry in NYC. Wade college will not adequately prepare you for the real fashion industry. Go to a more reputable school such as Parsons or FIT.

I am a freshman student at Wade who just graduated high school. At Wade I found not only the opportunity to get my degree at a faster pace, but also to work with professors who are experienced and have worked in the industry. The school also offers a lot of opportunities such as volunteering, interning and working on the industry. The fact that is located in the Design Destrict of Dallas puts you right where you need to be. I feel like I'm really getting my money's worth and am already excited to come back for another trimester.

Overall Rating:

As a parent, I do not recommend this school for a student fresh out of high school. It is odd to me that the students have little say in making their schedule. Furthermore, the course schedules seemed to be based on the professors availability, or perhaps the school's convenience. For the most part, my daughter is happy with her professors and the content she is being taught. However, the program feels rushed, (crash course education) which is not good for one who is really trying to take their time to master their craft. For tuition to be so high, $485 a credit hour (currently), you would expect more and this school is just a bit too paternalistic.
