Graduation Rate


Antelope Valley College graduation rate is below the national average.

26% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Antelope Valley 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 a huge number of students. This indicator 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 picture. 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 educational institutions.

I was a student at AVC for several years. It is a very pretty campus, and an affordable place to do undergraduate and associate degree studies, for later transfer to a four-year college or university.

Overall Rating:

Nice campus lots of trees, parking is hard to come by. Some excellent instructors, and some not so good. But I guess that’s to be expected.Learning center with tutoring. Learning center has computers available to do coursework.The study areas and library all close early, wish they were open in the evening when the night classes are open. Some of us need quiet study areas and aren’t available during the “day”.Seems very geared towards 18-19 year olds, not much concern for adults who may be pursuing a new career path.Plane is outside the ME building.

I had an appointment for a workshop at LH 100 and the office has sent me a message and email stating to come to room LH 100 at 0800. I came around 0700 looking out for places to park and the room. I went in room #100 waiting for Audrey Moore . Around 0805 i kept calling the office to confirm if the workshop has been cancelled and no one answered. When someone finally answered the phone, they told me they changed the room and there was a paper on the door stating they has changed to room 102. If i saw the paper, i would not sit in room 100 for a good 30 minutes and being accused for late and i end up have to reschedule the appointment. I did not wake up early for these unprofessional staffs work. I am not a late person when it comes to school and work. I accepted this because what else can i do as a student who needed to attend this workshop. Although this is a minor thing that happened, but i feel hopeless in this particular system when they accused me "coming late" "did not see the sign on the door." I'm sure no one wants to waste their early morning driving to school one hour early for a 3 hour workshop and ignored the paper on the door. I DID NOT SEE ANY PAPER ON THE DOOR. On my email, they stated "Academic P.R.I.D.E Faculty" and they wanted to reach out to us to help, well i do not see that they put too much enough to resolve this problem. It is not about rescheduling the appointment but it is about working professionally. The Counseling and Workshop has put me down and i hope that other staffs somewhere at Antelope Valley College will improve this for the future, but i definitely would not recommend to anyone. Below is the email they sent me and the room and time as well as they sent me a message on my phone to for the workshop appointment.

I studied the Early Childhood Education Program with alot of electives. I wanted to teach young children, and therefore, I wanted the most well rounded education I could get. The teachers in the program are very knowledgable and make learning the information interesting, setting an example of how you should teach young children and keep their attention. Teachers of other classes were mostly good, providing what I expected from a good community college. The office needs the most improvement. They seem to cater to the teachers, but lack any care or help for the students.
