Graduation Rates

The graduation rates displayed are based on the percentage of first-time, full-time, certificate and bachelor’s or equivalent degree-seeking freshmen who earn a certificate, bachelor’s or equivalent degree after originally enrolling and completing at Eternity. Undergraduates who begin as part-time or non degree-seeking students, or who transfer into the institution from elsewhere in higher education, are not included in the cohort. The rates are calculated allowing for graduation within 150% of the estimated time needed to graduate. That means, a student seeking a four-year degree would be allowed six years to complete, while a student in a two-year program would be counted if they complete within three years.

Bachelor and Certificate Program Completion Rates:
  • Fall 2010 Entering Class: 24%
  • Fall 2011 Entering Class: 12%
  • Fall 2012 Entering: 25%
  • Fall 2013 Entering: 24%

I signed up for an education, what I received was so much more. I was mentored and discipled by fellow students and staff who had been transformed by God’s incredible love and lived every aspect of their lives as a response to that love. The more I learned to study God’s Word, the more I grew in my relationship with Jesus. And the more I learned about God’s love for the world, the more I felt called to take up my part in making this great love known.
