PAU Celebrates High Bachelor Program Graduation Rate

When it comes to offering Bachelor degree providing unique advantages to students, Palo Alto University (PAU) is way ahead of the rest.

Top Results for Palo Alto University Students

Palo Alto University, a not for profit institution, offers two-year bachelor degree transfer programs to students who have completed their general education requirements at local community colleges.  An impressive 78% of these students have completed Bachelor’s degrees at PAU, with 92% of the students finishing in less than two years.

In contrast, the national graduation rate data:

  • Six years after starting at a four-year college, 58% of students graduated with Bachelor’s degrees.
  • Students who started at community colleges were much less likely to graduate. After starting at a two-year community college, only 11% of students graduated with Bachelor’s degrees.*

Groundbreaking Tuition Stabilization Program

As students study with PAU, they take advantage of the Tuition Stabilization Program in addition to established federal student aid options.

How does it work?

  • Over the last thirty years, the average university tuition rate has risen by more than 250%.
  • CSU’s and UC’s continue to increase their tuition costs on an annual basis.

The Tuition Stabilization Program automatically freezes students’ tuition rate for the duration of their bachelor degree programs, which means that tuition and fees are guaranteed not to rise during the length of their study.

Everything on Schedule

At PAU, classes run like clockwork. Students working towards a two-year degree will find that all their classes are pre-scheduled for the duration of their studies. Scheduling conflicts are avoided, and there are no waiting lists or late graduations because a student was unable to get into a class.

Size Matters

Across the United States, students are being packed into large classrooms with other students. PAU is committed to small class sizes (20 to 35 students is the norm). PAU firmly believes that the smaller the group, the more interaction and quality time students can have with their professors and fellow students. This leads to a great educational benefit.
