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 say much about the quality of the education or the student experience. 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.
Out of all the first-year, full-time undergrads who start at Webster University, around 77 percent return for their sophomore year. Out of the 457 students who started at Webster University as first-time freshman, 188 graduate within four years.
Around 55 percent of students who started at Webster University earn their Bachelor's degrees within six years. 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. Students in the class of 2021 who had taken out student loans graduated with an average of $29,867 of debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
