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 indicator 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 educational institutions.

Great school to attend for Vet Tech's

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Okay let me start of by saying the staff and financial aid staff are EXTREMELY RUDE and not helpful . Not only was I told different things every time I came in but I was also yelled at (unreasonably) by one of the financial aid staff. She told me “YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING IV’E TOLD YOU” when in fact , I had submitted some things online and brought in new paperwork. It took me about 5 trips to finally be “finished” submitting all of my documents in order to enroll. I was given the run around and I finally decided I didn’t want to attend a school where there staff is so unprofessional and rude. Even though cedar valley is the closest to my house I'd rather make a longer drive to north lake where the staff is actually COURTEOUS, HELPFUL, & TRULY CARE ABOUT YOUR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. I do not recommend anyone to enroll here.

Overall Rating:

Would not recommend. I can't speak to the instructors since I never made it that far, but the staff needs a refresher course on office management. I work in an admin office and if I ignored customers as I was ignored by this college I would have been fired a long time ago. I had my former colleges send my official transcripts in April which both confirmed that they had. I asked in June and in July where we were in the processes. The only answer I received was that "we can't find them" and asked if they were submitted under another name. I had told them multiple times that they were submitted under my maiden name as I was not married when I received other degrees. No response.So I had them resent. There was no response. So after 24 hours I emailed both the registrar's office AND the email designed specifically for transcripts and did not hear back again. When I went up and emailed everyone in the admissions office suddenly they found my transcripts and my transcript hold disappeared like that. And then afterward, suddenly I received a response to one of my emails and the person I was speaking to was quite snippy with me saying that she "got to it when she could" although I had been inquiring for 2 MONTHS about the status of my transcripts.Fortunately this was going to be my first semester and I have enough time that I found another distance education vet tech degree from another college. I won't be registering for classes with Cedar Valley after this whole thing honestly its NOT worth it.Also, there is NO requirement to meet with an advisor and no one point of contact for Distance Education students. Their instructions for registering for classes are confusing and even inquiry emails were met with silence. Also it feels the admissions office was supplying contrary information on how to enroll in vet tech classes in the first place! If you're looking for a distance education vet tech program I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you going elsewhere. You'll just get frustrated here.I would give 0 stars if possible

If I could give 0 stars I would. The staff is unprofessional not friendly at all. No one greets you have to do things yourself. And the store manager for the bookstore was the rudest person I've met till this day, we asked her a question ans she got so offended yelling and saying inappropriate things towards me and my mother! Please avoid this school at all cost go to mount view or another campus. All I wanted was to take summer classes here, but I will no longer do so anymore.

Overall Rating:

I am extremely interested in getting my degree with their veterinary technologies program. I live in South Texas, so I want to take on line classes. I completed all necessary documents & application via on line. There has been a hang up somewhere, so I have reapeatedly called everyday for the last month to the college (some days, close to 5x daily) I have yet to get a human on the phone. I have emailed every department only to get a "auto reply" email that contains the same list of instructions on how to apply that is on the web page... I googled reviews and here I am seeing same issue's. I was literally about to make the 6 hour drive up to Lancaster, TX and deal in person. But... I think,k its time to look into a different college! Very 😢 sad, discouraged and disappointed!!
