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.

Overall Rating:

great teachers, this is good if you work and can't make a full commitment to a college, friendly small atmosphere, deceiving hierarchy of staff above students and teachers who are only profit oriented, eliminated all sports, eliminated majority of any challenging coursework, constantly lingering due to their claim of financially failing status

I will never recommend anyone to this school again. The teachers were great, but, financially you will be screwed over!Do NOT get REFUNDS or they will hunt your behind! When you know it you owe the school money. Their financial office will fail to contact you at the right number or email and suddenly without your knowledge you are in collections!!! ... & too late to take you back!Save your time and money--- go someplace else!
