Graduation Rate

Loading...
24%
BELOW AVERAGE

Carl Sandburg College graduation rate is below the national average.

24% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Carl Sandburg 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 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 institutions.

Its nice to have a community college with decent prices but the staff except for the teachers are all very very rude and disrespectful. I've dealt with too many rude office workers to give them a good rating.
