Is IU East a good school?

The definition of a "good school" is different for different people. Acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how selective an institution is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.

Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.

Retention and graduation rates

Out of all the first-year, full-time undergrads who start at IU East, around 63 percent return for their sophomore year.

Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61 percent for public schools and 67 percent for private.

Job outcomes and student debt

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. The average student debt for graduates in the class of 2021 was around $22,024 per student, not including those with no debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
