Facts and Figures | 2014

Current Student Facts and Statistics

The Eternity Bible College student body is diverse in their background and goals. Our students move from all over the U.S. to enroll in programs of study at our Simi Valley Campus, and we have many online students who choose to remain where they are due to family and work commitments. We have students who are recently out of high school and students who are returning to pursue further education after many years in the workforce. Many Eternity students are preparing for international work. They are very involved with serving and volunteering in the local community, through local churches, as part of their preparation to work in cross-cultural situations from major metropolitan areas to remote rural villages.

Graduation Rates

The graduation rates displayed here are based on the percentage of first-time, full-time, certificate and bachelor’s or equivalent degree-seeking freshmen who earn a certificate, bachelor’s or equivalent degree after originally enrolling and completing at Eternity. Undergraduates who begin as part-time or non degree-seeking students, or who transfer into the institution from elsewhere in higher education, are not included in the cohort. The rates are calculated allowing for graduation within 150% of the estimated time needed to graduate. That means, a student seeking a four-year degree would be allowed six years to complete, while a student in a two year program would be counted if they complete within three years.
