Graduation Rate

Loading...
11%
BELOW AVERAGE

Bunker Hill Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

11% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Bunker Hill 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 index doesn’t take into consideration 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Bunker Hill Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Some of the staff are amazing! -alas, they must stand in the shadow of the utter incompetence of the *not so grounded/competent staff. Definitely Russian roulette, (especially when confronting the format of some of the online courses) but inexpensive enough to get some credits towards a four year.

Overall Rating:

I hope to enroll here. I took the placement test on a 1980s style computer interface. It said I scored really lousy on the English placement test, however, I don't think the options were correct. I am considering taking medic training here. I separated from the military as PFC E-3 and medic was my MOS. However, I could not complete the course because I am a conscientious objector. I am enrolling in this class because I have time and for cryogenics. I am a cryogenics technician. I am looking forward to classes here at BHCC. It was featured in the Goodwill Hunting movie. I used to think that Community Colleges were just invented when I heard about them in middle school. There are plenty of great technical classes to take here at BHCC including biomedical engineering and engineering and power utilities. I am going to take statics here and dynamics here. Maybe Russian maybe Arabic. Next to the orange line
