Top 10 Worst Colleges in the US

by on February 22, 2011

When you go to college you want to make sure you are getting a great education. The last thing you want to do is Courtesy of google imagesattend a school with poor accreditations and low student scores. When most of the students are doing poorly in a school that usually means it is the school’s issue. That does not mean you need to go to the number one school in the country. The following will tell you the ten worst colleges in the US.

  1. Southern University at New Orleans
  2. Allen University, South Carolina
  3. Martin University, Indiana
  4. Bellevue University, Nebraska
  5. Calumet College of Saint Joseph, Indiana
  6. Baker College of Auburn Hills, Michigan
  7. Visible School – Music and Worships Arts College, Indiana
  8. University of the District of Columbia, D.C.
  9. Saint Augustine’s College, North Carolina
  10.   Nyack College, New York

 It is very important to find a school that has the right accreditations as well as a student body that puts in a lot of time and effort into their work. The harder the students work the harder the curriculums are because the school knows the students can handle it. You want to make sure you are attending a school with students who are serious about their futures and willing to put in the time it takes to earn that degree.

Just because these schools are on the list does not mean you should not attend them. They made the lists because of their graduation rates. If you are accepted to any of these schools and are ready and willing to put in the time and effort to earn that degree and get everything you can out of the courses you are going to take, then go for it. Do not let this stop you if they meet your criteria. You need to do more research before just writing off any one of these schools. The graduation rates might be low but you could be the one who changes this trend. Do some more research before making any final decisions and if one of these schools is your final decision, good luck and give it your very best!

  1. Assuming you are using the graduation rate reported in IPEDs to formulate this list, please note that IPEDs only measures first time, first year freshman, which represents less than two percent of Bellevue University’s enrollment. The University’s graduation rate is actually much higher than the IPEDs number because most of our students are adult learners and not included in the IPEDs measurement. Please remove Bellevue University from this list.

    Hey Jim, stop crying. Secondly, I went to Nyack College. I agree… should be higher.

  3. This blog is way off the mark. Nyack has the highest accreditation available in all of its programs and majors. In addition to NYSED and Middle States accreditation, our music, education, seminary and other professional degree programs have specialized accreditation. Gradation rates are often a better indicator of students struggling financially. A very large percentage of our students come from families making less than $20,000 per year. Please forgive my “heat,” but irresponsible blogs like this have to be answered!

  4. Thank you for removing Nyack College from your list of “worst colleges,” which appears to be based on inaccurate information that was subsequently retracted by Washington Monthly. Please visit http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/college_guide/rankings_2010/dropout_factories.php and read the footnote that explains why Nyack and other institutions were included on the original Washington Monthly report.
