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 indicator 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 picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Overall Rating:

I am not pleased with this school after a year. I got extremely ill and my Dr told me and the school that I HAD to drop and I was in no way able to proceed with the Spring semester and after I dropped after being told to do so by my Dr I was suspended and then placed on probation after a horrible lengthy appeal process that I had to fight for. Then in my next semester I had the hardest time staying caught up in Algebra and after failing that course I was suspended again because of the fact that I failed while on probation, again, because the Dr said I had to withdrawal that semester. This school is not understanding or considerate, they do not care for anyone but they sure do care about their money. I have transferred to WSU and it was the best decision I've made. This new school definitely proves that they care for their students and help in anyway as a college should.

I haven't even started yet and I'm less than pleased with this school. I paid to go to an orientation class back in April and here I am in July just now learning that there's a student email which I found emails saying that I could have gotten scholarships if I had updated my application - nice to know! Also had to find out from another student how to find the books I will need. I don't know when I need to move in to Cummins Hall nor who my roommate will be. Not a single email, phone call or letter in the mail so I'm at a loss for what I need to do to be prepared for the upcoming school year that starts in LESS THAN A MONTH. Really people?! I'm appalled.

If it was possible to give negative stars I would. I played for football for butler and blew out my knee on their practice facilities. After surgery they refused to pay for anything even tho I was on their insurance. I was 19 with a bum knee and no job and a $15000 debt that wasn't mine.

The school itself is great. The financial aide is the absolute worst though. They audited me every time I applied for fasfa. They wanted all my W2's, my tax transcripts, my 1040ez, and other documents too. They created forms just for me to fill out. Every day it was something new. I felt like I was being punished for working full time while going to school full time. I almost decided to go to a more expensive school just so I wouldn't have to deal with these jokers that don't have a clue.
