Franklin University

We call this school a "college dropout factory" because very few students who enroll complete a bachelor's degree within six years, and it falls in the bottom 5% of all four-year colleges nationwide for its extraordinarily low graduation rate. This college may not be the best option for you. Use this website to identify similar colleges or colleges in your area that fit your needs and have higher graduation rates.
