Graduation Rate

Loading...
33%
BELOW AVERAGE

Broward College graduation rate is below the national average.

33% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Broward 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 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Broward College

I wish I could give this college less than 1 start. Attending BC was like a dream to me when I graduated in 2016. Since the moment I walked in to register for classes they made it very hard for me to get in college classes. They told me that I had to take EAP classes because my high school diploma was not good and it required me to take those courses before taking any courses related to the career I want, I saw it as something beneficial for myself so I decided to take them. Now that I’m ready for college classes the two advisors that I saw in December last year placed me in the wrong degree type, because of that my financial aid got frozen and I have to pay for my classes, went over there 5 times already and spoke to all the senior advisors and no one has been able to help me. I tried to at least pay for two of the classes I wanted to take but wasn’t able to do it because they are charging me for a class that I register for in the spring term but never attended, financial aid paid for that class and now they are charging me for it too. Long-short story I went back a few days ago to see if it’s possible to register for the summer since it’s been 4 months already and no one has been able to do anything to me, the lady from financial aid told me everything was fine to register for the summer but when I went online to pick my classes there is a hold because they need to check my immigration status, I went to the admission office to check what was going on and the lady in the front called me an Immigrant even though I showed her my asylum documents which was granted to me in 2015 my drivers license expires in 2024 because I’m a permanent resident, she told me that asylums expires and I have to show her my green car which I don’t have because I just started the process to register my permanent residence so the immigration office needs to send it to me once all the process it’s done. I’ve been so depressed and frustrated this past week I don’t know what else to do so the best option will be to transfer to another college and sue them for their incompetent work.

Great affordable school to get a transfer degree, or a degree in nursing. The staff is great and most of the professors are excellent. Suburb learning environment to prepare students for a top university or to go on to medical fields. Go Seahawks!

Overall Rating:

The best school for Paramedic/EMT in Florida. Juan and the other staff in the EMS dept. are accomodating and helpful people!! Tuition is affordable. However, the registration processes for the rest of the school is an absolite NIGHTMARE/a mess. I go to UM, but my bf attends here and I've been to all of his appointments. He's had problems in all 3 of the semesters he has been here. 3-4 hr wait times just to see advisors and financial aid staff. Everyone says something different. DO NOT call on the phone to get your questions answered. Go for a walk-in. You will have to wait but they get to you eventually. They don't email you when something is wrong on your account and they are allowed to drop your classes without warning and you can't get back in because there are extensive wait lists. They don't bend deadlines even for transfer students. Before classes start MAKE SURE YOU ARE SQUARED AWAY at least 3 weeks prior to your first class. Double check and triple check in the following weeks. They mess up on everything and then say there's nothing they can do for their own mistakes if it's past a deadline and they didn't even notify you. Good education. Horrible administration. Strict rules. Beautiful campus.

Overall Rating:

Decent college where you can earn credits for a decent price. The library is pretty big and resources are available for all students to succeed. The cafeteria and gym are small but school has a lot of potential.
