Graduation Rate

Loading...
35%
BELOW AVERAGE

Weber State University graduation rate is below the national average.

35% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Weber State 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 indicator 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 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 institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Weber State University

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Waste of money. Hard to get the help you need. The math program is horrible. They took the teacher tutors out of the hub. And the students tutor don't know how to teach and aren't required to be there during finals week. They just leave ya hanging. The professors aren't very knowledgeable. I don't feel like I'm getting an education here. They are also raising the tuition here. And all the staff is getting a raise for a poor job.

Overall Rating:

Their faculty is one of the best in the universe. However some to most of the administrative staff lack the human touch. Sure there are those who are not in a position of authority who are hands down the greatest you will ever encounter. Not all the staff are unpleasant. The higher they are in the administrative sector, the less they care about individuals. They care more about the numbers, bringing other people down, and walking over them than what's going on with their people. Go for the education but avoid the top brass when necessary.

Overall Rating:

The reason why I give this school a 2 star rating is because of the political propaganda the professors push.This political propaganda was highlighted the year when President Trump was elected. I am politically independent, free from the right and left paragram of American politics. This school is politically left, identical to California State Universities. There is no balance of political views, only a one sided view for liberal ideas.Besides the gross liberal political leaning, it's a great school.

I enjoy the professors and the ability to learn on such a beautiful campus. Wonderful library and helpful staff. Living on campus or at University Village make the experience so much more enjoyable!

Overall Rating:

Great teachers and resources. A lot of financial aid potential and low cost schooling comparative to other schools.The parking service is horrible though. They will over sell the W lot parking passes by a long shot, and this year they took away over 100 parking spots for construction and painted the curbs red without compensating the students in any way. They also placed no parking signs in all of the neighborhoods around campus in order to expand their revenue of parking tickets. There is no one to complain to because it is private, even the police officers I have spoken with on campus think the service is terrible. Be prepared to arrive before 7:45 or not find a spot. In the A lot they claim to only sell them to seniors but they will also sell to them to people who donate money to the school.You can park at the Dee events center but be prepared to wait in a line of around a hundred students before getting into the shuttle.It takes me 15-30 minutes to get from my car to the classroom during the day time even though I bought a W pass for $70. If a student doesn't like it, then they will tell them to use the Dee events center or return the pass during the refund period.Last year in winter there was so much ice in the parking spots in the W lots that many cars slid into each other and caused a lot of damage.
