    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    67%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Wartburg College graduation rate is above the national average.

    67% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wartburg 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 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.

      It's pretty and good for a visit. If you're looking to attend there, make sure you plan your budget out and try for as many scholarships as possible to help bring down the price. The people here are great (both in faculty and in students). If you stop to eat, I suggest getting food from the Den and then later get snacks from the Kdit. The W is a very good work out area and I would suggest using it if you get a chance. The art gallery is also always fun to walk around in.

      We needed three onesies for triplets. We ordered them on a Thursday by phone, needed them by Saturday, and they arrived the next day, thanks to the kind and helpful woman who was working there. They are so cute, high quality, and the service was unbelievable. Thank you to that special woman. Ellen Johnson Guttenberg, Iowa

      I had a wonderful experience as a student here. I was able to double major, participate in amazing music groups, and graduate in four years. I loved the place so much that I came back to work here and it has been so great to give back to a place that I love.
