Graduation Rate

Loading...
92%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Wesleyan University graduation rate is above the national average.

92% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wesleyan 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 an extensive 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 educational institutions.

My wife started the online programs and soon to discover that the first and second semester teacher where very punctual and professional the 3 teacher she had start to constantly failing her on something called (spiritual life discussion) opinion based right? Wrong, my wife soon discovered that 4.0 G.P.A was no longer safe with this teacher because what went from a opinion based assignment was going to totally destroy my wife's G.P.A. My wife asked me what she should do with teachers ridicule of "that is not what the bible means by what it says" or "that scripture doesn't mean that to you it wasn't written for you to use it" the teacher seemed to want to twine politics with the Bible but as anyone in their right mind would know that cannot be done the bible is the word of God not politics. So my wife talked with me asking what she should do i just told her to reconcile with the teacher find out what her issue is and the teacher seemed to have actual solution (keep in mind this school has already been payed) so my wife contacted the school reaching out for a solution the school advised her to drop the class. So drop the class and now at this point my wife has the belief if she tries another school she will have no control with access to a educational provider that has teachers that actually care about the students they do not have to face because of the schools so very helpful online classes... this all derived from the subject of opinions on the Bible and the teacher decided if you where right or wrong how wrong is that .... in my opinion very wrong but that does not matter to the teacher she still has her job and may have moved onto another student to ridicule. Today my wife continues to take care of our family with hope of one day continuing her education
