Student Right-to-Know Act Graduation/Completion Rate Report

In compliance with the Student Right to Know Act, Waynesburg University provides the following graduation/completion rate information. Graduation rates are based on a cohort of full-time, first-time, bachelor degree-seeking students who enrolled at the institution during the fall term and for whom 150% of the normal time to completion has elapsed.

Graduation Rate - 6 Years to Completion
Fall '09 62%
Fall '10 60%
Fall '11 66%
Fall '12 66%
Fall '13 66%
  • The cohort may be adjusted for the following reasons:
    • Students who died or became permanently disabled
    • Students who left school to serve in the armed forces (or have been called up to active duty)
    • Students who left school to serve with a foreign aid service of the Federal Government
    • Students who left school to serve on an official church mission
  • Graduation rates do not include students who have transferred into the University from another institution.
  • Providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in other institutions is not part of the University’s mission. Therefore, transfers-out is not reported.
