10 Colleges With Horrendously Low Graduation Rates

With the cost of college outside the reach of the average middle income family, more and more people are wondering if the cost of financing college is worth the investment.  We have all heard the numerous horror stories about students who graduate from college only to wind up working at low or minimum wage jobs that require no college education.  Worse, yet many of these newly minted and lowly paid graduates are burdened by huge student loans taken out to acquire a degree with no discernible benefit.

As bad as things are for new graduates, another class of students find themselves in an even worse position – those who decide to enroll in college and then drop out after two or three years.  It’s difficult enough to find a job with a degree, but college dropouts without a degree will have an even tougher time finding a job that pays enough to live on and pay back student loans.

The following ten colleges have the worst records for four year  graduation rates.  Is it the college or the caliber of students attending these colleges that result in such abysmal graduation rates?  The answer is not clear, but anyone deciding to enroll in one of these colleges should ask themselves some really hard questions before enrolling.  Despite the hard sell from the educational establishment, not everyone is college material and not everyone benefits from attending college, something many graduates are finding out the hard way.
