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 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 institutions.

If I can give it no stars I would. They (Geeta, admission) try to give me three student loans, all with high interest and no parking in the area. They're (as a whole) ripping people off. Dont fall for the "Apex loan".

They didn't teach anything and I am still expected to pay the tuition. Only the first and second segments of ac refrigeration actually had shop. My class even the teachers fooled around all day and cheated on exams and the school did nothing. Felt like i paid to get into a daycare center.The only good i have is the paper with my name on it but no real education.
