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 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 institutions.

Totally unprofessional. I tried requesting information on a course. I never heard nothing back. When I called the receptionist was rude. I ended up calling another school that are more professional and nice . This school wasted my time.

This college is TRASH. Most of the coworkers are unprofessional and disgustingly rude. A lot of my friends had problems with this college. I warn others not to even try here. Disgusting.

Overall Rating:

Save yourself endless amounts of headaches and stress. The faculty members are incompetent and lazy. No one gets back to you and no one wants to do their job. I’m in Irwin and all I wanted to do was start school and because of their incompetence they were making it impossible. Go find a better school with faculty members who truly want to help!
