Graduation Rate

Loading...
35%
BELOW AVERAGE

Washburn University graduation rate is below the national average.

35% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Washburn 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 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 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 think Washburn is a great University to go to, wish it wasn't so far from Lindsborg.

Overall Rating:

It is horribly close-minded: having all those diversity groups and stuff doesn't mean it is a good, open school. The thoughts are limited. Most of the professors I had were extremely insecure as far as English dept went. The classes offered almost no challenges at all. Most classes felt like group therapy sessions. On top of that, most people there were not trustworthy or professional at all. Not to mention they pay student 7.25 an hr - should be ashamed! Two star because I had one good professor. Otherwise I'd do one.

Overall Rating:

Registrar and Finacial Aid OfficeCan not be counted on to give reliable critical need-to-know information regarding your financial situation and enrollment.IF you are making financial decisions / taking time off from work to pay bills or run errands / get school supplies based on the information given to you buy these offices - Forget it.Do not count on them to give you the correct dates of when you will have access to student aid - do not make plans around their information - Plan as if you are never going to get student aid in the first place.They consistently give out false information regarding when you will have access to student aid (various forms) with a facade of knowledge about the processes we are "hurry up and waiting on," then falsely make you believe when you will have critical access to financial relief.I have personally can not afford to pay for the mistake and "lost paperwork" of this department- I ask anyone reading this to tread with great caution - and be weary of how "comfortable" they try to make you feel about how they are handling your education and financial future.
