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 schools.

It has only been one semester and I no longer fear death. My favorite thing to do here is to sob hysterically in the parking lot after my tests. So I would say it's good for that typical college experience.

Not for nothing, I have never met such rude advisors. I must admit when I had gone to BCC I really enjoyed it, teachers for the most part were extremely great. But when I call BCC for important information, they are probably worse than any other service I have ever called. I usually do not write reviews but this is something that who ever runs BCC should know. Just because it is calls online, who ever answers even if you don't think the question is important or you don't want someone rambling on just listen. Listening is key, but for some reason I do not find many advisors doing so. Believe it or not, I rather listen to a robot and have them answer then the rudeness that I have experienced on the phone. Just a little message to make BCC aware of what is occurring online. Thank you.

I was preparing my master's program and taking some transitional courses at Brookdale - it was a great experience. Like in any public school, students need to be proactive and actively searching for help. Even though it is a community college, Brookdale has a good teaching staff combining with part-time and full-tim staff. I had three Math classes and was lucky to have some great caring instructors. In order for students to be successful, Brookdale Math and Comp Sci department also hold "lab hours", which is a walk in service where students can get help from staff members. This helped me tremendously to reach good grades and truly understand the materials.

Probably one of the best educational experiences of my life. I took a few classes in Lincroft and it really opened my eyes. Professors who want you to succeed, driven students, an awesome campus are just the few things that made my time at Brookdale great. Thank you for the opportunity to attend!

Proud alumni of the class of 2011. It is a school filled with opportunity. It is challenging, but if you work hard and get to connect with people, it will open doors. Plus, it is an EXTREMELY accessible transfer school. After getting my AA in Graphic Design, I transferred to Stockton University, receiving my degree in Graphic Design and a minors in digital literacy. I'm glad to have gotten my start here!
