Grad Rate

Corban Rowland

According to the Noble Network College Bot, MSOE's 6yr minority grad rate is a 33%. However, the overall 6yr grad rate is 58%. Why is this so?

    Hey Corban!

     

    Although this statistic is accurate, it's a bit outdated. These numbers all relate back to our overall graduation rate. Since increasing our requirements a few years ago, we are on track to have a minority graduation rate of over 60%!! However, we won't be able to notice the change until we hit that six year mark, in about 2 years or so.

     

    Hopefully this helps! If you have further questions about it, our Vice President of Admissions Tim Valley would be a great person to connect with.

        Ha! Nothing to be worried sick about! It's tough having a statistic like that, where it is based on increments of six years! That's a long time! We'll catch up soon enough

         

        Thanks for asking!

          Hey Corban,

           

          Elle is right on. We have seen a significant improvement in our retention rate over the past four years which will have a positive influence on our 6 year graduation rate. This is an intentional effort on the part of the entire university community and is exciting to be a part of it. Hope you can join us this Fall.
