Is MMC a Good School?

There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how competitive 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.

Around 51% of students who started at MMC earn their Bachelor's degrees within six years. Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61% for public schools and 67% for private.

Job Outcomes and Debt for MMC Grads

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. Students in the class of 2021 who had taken out student loans graduated with an average of $26,476 of debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
