The retention rate for students at the University of Phoenix - New Jersey campus is unknown. However, the graduation rate for those who attain a bachelor’s degree is 18%. The majority of students who complete degrees do so in six years and are female, but other students also finish degrees in four years and eight years. The student to faculty ratio is very small at 3 to 1. This means there are plenty of opportunities to interact with faculty and getting to know your fellow students is a given. The low graduation rate could be attributed to the school environment or the varying needs of the students who attend. The school caters to working students who often have to put the education on pause due to work and personal responsibilities. This could also explain why students take eight years to complete a four-year degree.
