Student Achievement

The U.S. Secretary of Education recognizes accreditation by SACS Commission on Colleges in establishing the eligibility of higher education institutions to participate in programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act, as amended, and other federal programs.

Schreiner University evaluates success with respect to student achievement consistent with its mission and offers below data that track demonstration of our work toward achieving mission-related goals.

Retention rates consider the percentage of our first-time, first-year undergraduates who continue their studies with us the next fall semester. Numbers are based on enrollment on the 12th-day census.

Fall 2009 - Fall 2010 63%
Fall 2010 - Fall 2011 64%
Fall 2011 - Fall 2012 71%
Fall 2012 - Fall 2013 67%

Student success within our Learning Communities is measured by the first-year retention of each fall cohort and the academic success reflected in the cumulative grade point average (GPA) of that cohort.

Graduation rates reflect the percentage of Schreiner University’s first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within four years and six years.

Student post-graduation success is monitored by a survey conducted through our Center for Advising and Career Development.
