Graduation Rate

Loading...
71%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Alaska Career College graduation rate is above the national average.

71% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Alaska Career College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Fair warning, you don't have any say in your class hours so if you're not a night person, and you're considering a program here, you'll likely have night classes with no other option. Moreover, you will have your own experience if you choose to come to classes here.

I’m Alaska native. I got my travel degree and was in the presidents honor roll. At that time prior to going to school we were asked to fill out our complete work history and that anything filled out will be saved throughout history for later use if needed. I recently called to take another class my native corporation will be paying for. I was told they would not except me for I had a warrant for my arrest. I went and found that the warrant they were looking for it had been dismissed. I tried for several months to contact Jennifer, the owner. I had decided not to go to school but had requested a copy of my graduation certificate and presidents honor roll degree and work history. She said she could no longer find such things but had sent me another graduation degree in its place with the wrong date on it. I did eventually find my original decree and presidents honor roll. I’m disgusted that they would not allow me to go to school again with a full scholarship and could not find any information on me ever going to that school before and my work history. As in Alaska native, take your training elsewhere !

I loved this college! The teachers are really invested in students! I did have an issue with some of the staff, but then environment was nice. My big issue with this college is that I asked multiple time before starting if my some or all credits would transfer to UAA if I decided to further my education. I was told yes multiple times that a portion of my credits would be accepted before starting and while attending. I was always given the impression that at leaste some of the credits would transfer over. Well I was informed today by UAA staff that absolutely none of the credits transfer over to UAA, but I could pay ($140-$160 per test) to test out if those classes so I would not have to repeat classes that I've already completed. All I have to say is Shane on the previous staff that gave me the impression that at least some of my credits would transfer over now I am in debt for $20k to ACC and non of the credits transfer to UAA. I was lied to and dont appreciate it. I will take this as a life lesson.
