Graduation Rate

Loading...
11%
BELOW AVERAGE

Bossier Parish Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

11% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bossier Parish Community 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 consider 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.

This is the absolute worst college in history. I started at BPCC two years ago after i graduated high school (circa 2017) and let me tell all of you, BPCC has the worst teachers over there. They don’t even teach! I only had one good teacher during my time over there, just ONE!! For the people who are thinking about signing up for college, do not i repeat DO NOT sign up at BPCC. Thank you, good morning, good evening and good night.

At first this was a amazing school! But with me being so close to the finish I have ended up with the worst teachers! Dr.Cain was and amazing teacher but I can’t say the same for the rest of the staff!! These teachers show that they are just there for a job! Not to really help the students get an education!! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

BPCC enabled me to change my career from electrical construction to software quality assurance, so I'm happy about that.Also, looking back now, BPCC is a very good value for the price. The instructors are experienced in their fields and are also trained at teaching (I think). Every course I took taught me something that I could bring with me after the course was over and that's what matters.

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at this school. I've gone to three different colleges in my life, and I can say from all that experience, this is hands down the best school I've been to. Now I can't say that all degree programs are great because I personally am only taking communication classes and art classes, but I haven't heard anything horrible from anyone else either. I really feel they're the least money hungry college I've been to because they actually CARE if you graduate or are doing well in your classes and your well being in general. Most schools couldn't care less if you flunk out, they have your money and are happy about it. But here they follow up on everything and are very pushy (in a good way) to get you to talk to your advisors and counselors to help you through anything you need help doing. I'd highly recommend.
