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 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 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 educational institutions.

Good school at a great price. I had some nice teachers who actually cared.

They fired Dwight Anderson for mentioning the word God. What are you going to to me for mentioning God. Why don't you not mention your darwinism and your liberal politics. Keep those comments out of the teaching environment, but you and all of the schools are in cahoots to get the youth to adopt communism.

As the mom of a college student who had to leave a private, out of state institution for medical reasons, I came into contact with BCCC when my son was ready to obtain further credits.The administration was so very helpful, from applying for appropriate courses, to registering and payment. My son has not yet graduated, but the experience at the local community college was excellent.BCCC also has programs in which high school students with special skills or talents can participate in college level work. Both the high school and BCCC were extremely helpful in this regard. High school credits were obtained with no tuition payment.Finally, I am a sunset photographer. The high hill on the campus overlooking the baseball field just off Swamp Road is a very nice vista for sunset shots!!

My home school is Penn State Abington, and I decided to take some summer classes here a couple months ago. The reason being is because it would be cheaper, and they would transfer directly into my home institution so I could graduate faster. Well, once upon a time I used to go to community college of Philadelphia. Not for long because I dropped out to work and travel, you know, take a gap year, live and figure out my life, mature and grow up. But when I came back, the people at CCP were very much so judging and unhelpful. I see now, no matter what community college you go to, it's all the same. I have yet to meet another school with people that are as caring and kind as those at Penn State Abington. Although the facilities and parking are great, and the teachers are too, the people who sit in the offices are just as crappy as the ones at CCP. It makes me wonder if they have a brain? I recently received the most hilarious letter ever! That my financial account is deactivated because I didn't supplement them some kind of paperwork, when that wasn't mandatory because I was a GUEST STUDENT. And well, that if I didn't pay them what I "owe" they would take legal action against me. The reason I put owe in quotations and ask whether they have a brain or not is because I paid for my classes in straight up cash, IN FULL, before classes even started for the summer! I have receipts to prove it, and get this, at the bottom of the letter it said, "as of the time of this letter your current balance that you owe is $0.00." See my point? Why even send it? Do you guys have a brain? Maybe you guys need a turnover some of those workers and give them to students who graduated and actually want and need the job. They'll probably won't be as lazy as some of these folks to actually read what is being sent before it is sent out. I've never had so many problems, and never had my questions answers, and so much dodging in my life... oh wait, I did, it was at another Community College. Needless to say, besides some of the workers, it is a beautiful campus.
