Graduation Rate

Loading...
18%
BELOW AVERAGE

Bluegrass Community and Technical College graduation rate is below the national average.

18% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bluegrass Community and Technical 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

BCTC has been an amazing experience for me, its the perfect transition from the high school environment to the 4 year college one. Of course it has its problems like every university, but you will get what you put into it.I was accepted to Columbia University (Ivy league) straight from BCTC. The saying "start here go anywhere" is unbelievably true. Of course I took advantage of every opportunity given, became a Presidential Student Ambassador, attended SGA meetings and then became a Senator. Was a tutor here along with being a member of PTK. I was an average High school student, I came here and buckled down and achieved pretty amazing things.My professors were some of the nicest and brightest people I've encountered, sit in the front row and go to every class and it's impossible to not learn. The class sizes are intimate which is an amazing way to foster learning and understanding. I have had so many classes where UK students failed in their 300 person class and came to BCTC for the small class sizes and cheaper tuition, and they loved it.I was able to get 2 associate degrees in 2 years here. Nobody needs to be like me to get a lot out of this school, just go to classes, 100% ASK when you need help (I bothered a lot of people to get where I am lol), and keep an open mind with getting involved in the school.This was an invaluable personal and academic growth experience for me, I think I am probably a slight anomaly, but BCTC had the nurturing environment that allows people to strive. Help is given to those that ask for it .... ;). It's cheap the education is good and they want you to get involved.

It's like trying to get a hold of the pope when you need assistance. When you do get someone on the phone, it's a representative from the student call center, which about 95% of time cannot help you. They give incorrect information, will tell you they don't know or transfer you to someone else who cannot help. Also, even instructors rarely email you back. It's very frustrating especially when you can't just walk into the campus for assistance. For example, I emailed the Dean of the Mathematics for some syllabi needed for my new college to evaluate and she confirmed she would send those over. That was a week ago and I still did not receive an email. Another example, I have an Associate in Science with BCTC, I also have enough credits for an Associate in Art as well. First off, no one advised me of this. Second, I can't get a hold of anyone from the Records office. When I call, the phone line says the press a # for such and such, when I press the number (any number) it says "This number is not recognized", which forces me to contact the Student Customer Service line who will then submit a ticket and a week goes by and no one follows up. For these reasons alone, I would not recommend anyone attend BCTC unless you can walk in there when you need help OR if you have hours to spend trying to get assistance.

Overall Rating:

Pathetic. Does anyone at BCTC answer their phone, respond to emails or voice mail? We have been waiting for a response for over a week. They pass the buck and nothing is resolved. Wound up visiting their office in person last summer because no one would answer and will do the same tomorrow. Stay away from them - it is not worth the trouble.

Overall Rating:

Staff is under-trained, provide little accurate information, and give minimal to no help. Teachers are great but can be a little disorganized. I hope things will change in the future, we deserve it for the price we pay.
