Graduation Rate

Loading...
38%
BELOW AVERAGE

Waldorf College graduation rate is below the national average.

38% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Waldorf 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 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.

I went to school online at Waldorf and absolutely LOVED it! The free textbooks save you so much money and this university saves you so much time as they have short class terms (2 months). The class sizes were small and the work load was doable along with working at a full time job. I would recommend this school to anyone, I wish I would have known about it years ago!
