Graduation Rate

Loading...
3%
BELOW AVERAGE

Cambridge College graduation rate is below the national average.

3% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Cambridge 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 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 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.

After months of communicating with admissions departments at my cambridge college location and main campus I was about to enroll in bachelor degree program. But decided not to since concurrent enrollment isn't allowed. It seems that the just about the entire work force of the campus I was interested in didn't understand admission policies thoroughly or types of college credits. I'm about to graduate with bachelor degree from another college and wondered what the CC experience would have been like, unfortunately I won't be considering CC for grad school. Please educate staff & consider concurrent enrollment for undergrad students so they can get it and out faster.

I've come across some great professors while being here however, administration has got to be one of the worst I've ever seen (aside from my student advisor Jeff Hogan is great). If you do chose this as your college and decide to study human service or psych stay far away from Steven foster no only is his class unorganized he never graded my final paper and left me to only get credit which dropped my GPA. If you want enjoy anytime while a student at Cambridge college take all of Rober fladgers classes he's amazing. He makes you look forward to coming to class even when you don't feel like it. I learned a lot from Carole and Jennifer Peppi Carole has accomplished so many great things in the human service field it truley is amazing. Also I enjoyed taking on of my mandatory psych classes with professor Christifaro she was great super fun and made class interesting. I also think they offer a great array of ways to get and finish your education... Online night and weekend classes, most professors are very understanding when you have hit a difficult time in your personal life. When doing your capstone take Dawn zapata she is the sweetest and really puts effort into her students (even though she is not on campus she still makes you feel like your her priority).

I'm really upset and disappointed about this College, I went to Admissions with this girl called 'Bela' and I don't know where it's her education but she treat me so bad just by my legal status in this country. I'm really upset I can't understand how people like her could be working in that place, where our students need help. She call another person (Ada) really educated who treat me as a person. I was really educated all the time with everybody and I'm really disappointed
