Student Right to Know Act - Graduation Rates

Unity College is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation/completion rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The rates reflect the graduation/completion status of students who enrolled during the Fall of 2003 and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed.

During the fall semester of 2003, 166 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduates entered Unity College. After 6 years (as of August 31, 2009) (54%) of these students had graduated from our institution.

Four Year Graduation Rate: 46%
Five Year Graduation Rate: 53%
Six Year Graduation Rate: 54%

Federal reporting does not include students who transfer into Unity College from other Colleges and Universities as part of their completion/graduation rates. The completion rates below are for all students who entered Unity College for the first time in the fall of 2003. These numbers include first time freshman as well as transfer students.

Graduated within Four Years: 44%
Graduated within Six Years: 56%

While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:

  • The graduation/completion rate is based on 6 years of attendance that equates to 150% of our longest program.
  • We have elected not to report our transfer-out rate because our college's mission does not include providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in other institutions.
  • The graduation/completion rate does not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, on official church missions, or in the foreign service of the federal government. Students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are also excluded.
