grad-copyIndian Bible College is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution’s graduation/completion and retention rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The rates reflect the graduation and completion status of students who enrolled during the 2010-11 school year and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed. Some students who did not graduate transferred to another institution, but we currently do not have a means of tracking that information.

Graduation Rate: During the fall semester of 2011 , 9 first-time, full-time, certificate or degree-seeking Undergraduate students entered Indian Bible College. After 6 years (as of July 1, 2017) 22% of these students had graduated from our institution or completed their programs.

However, at Indian Bible College, due to our students needing to work and be involved in ministry while studying, graduation is not time critical. We are more concerned with eventual completion. Thus, Indian Bible College uses a different formula to measure success.

Overall Success Rate: The percent of entering students who eventually complete a given IBC program. This is not time dependent. For example, in 2011, 14 freshman students started in the fall. 6 of the 14 eventually finished their CBS. 5 of the 14 went on and eventually finished their ABS. 2 of the 14 went on and eventually finished their BBS.

Per Program Success Rate: The percent of entering students who complete a sequential IBC program. This is NOT time dependent. For example, in 2011, 14 freshman students started in the fall. 6 eventually completed their CBS. Of those 6, 5 went on to complete their ABS. Of those 5, 2 went on to complete their BBS.

Graduation Employment Rate: Of the 29 graduates receiving terminal degrees of either Associates (9) or Bachelors (20) since 2001, 26 are building their lives around ministry, using their degrees obtained from IBC, though most are bi-vocational rather than in full-time ministry. Therefore, of our recent graduates, 90% are using their IBC degree in ministry.
