Is Allen University a good school?

The definition of a "good school" is different for different people.

However, there are a few good ways to get a better sense how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its student body.

Retention and graduation rates

The average six-year graduation rate for U.S. colleges and universities is 61 percent for public schools, and 67 percent for private, non-profit schools.

Job placement rates after graduation, average starting salaries, and the debt students graduate with can all give important clues about the value of a degree from a specific school. In 2020, students graduated with an average of $13,037 in student loans for each student with debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
