You’re in school to learn - but you may also have a part-time job so you can earn the money you need for necessities. However, working hours often interfere with scheduled classes, so what do you do? If you’re willing to make the effort to talk to your advisor or the Dean of Students, you’ll learn that Edgewood College does offer both evening classes (not degree programs) and distance (online) classes (again, not degree programs). You’ll be able to work and attend at least some classes, which can make your schooling that much easier to complete on schedule.

The retention rate, or how many students remain at Edgewood College after their freshman year, is 78%. The 4-year graduation rate is 41% and the 6-year graduation rate is 64% - some students may have decided to remain in college longer to finish degree programs that require higher credits or because they shifted their majors partway through their college years.

The degree programs offered include: biological and biomedical sciences; business, management, marketing and related support services; communication, journalism and related programs; computer and information sciences and support services; education; health professions and related programs; homeland security, law enforcement, firefighting and related protective services; physical sciences; psychology; social sciences; and visual and performing arts.
