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 consider 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 schools.

Started in May 2018 trying to enroll in the continue education program for PCT. I left numerous messages only for them not to be returned. There was no schedule information online to enroll so I made several pop ups. On one of the pop ups I was told to come back at a certain time to speak with someone, came back only to be told he wasn't available due to conference calls. Which caused me to miss the bus 2 times for nothing to get accomplished with my child in tow while it's raining mind you. It wasn't till after voicing this to the financial aid department I finally received a call back in July. Finally signed up and was told class would start September 10 but to finish getting shots to complete requirements for enrollment. I got like 7 shots in one day, made calls to speak with dept sent emails and it is now November and I haven't had any response back to date. I feel like Cedar Valley let me down and almost discouraged me. STAY AWAY IF YOUR SERIOUS ABOUT ENROLLING IN ANY CE COURSES CAUSE THEY AIN'T SERIOUS ABOUT YOU.

I’m a current student here at CVC, and I’ve been enrolled for about 3 semesters now. I’m a musician and I have to say that the education here at CVC is phenomenal! Anyone that wants to study under a strong music program for a very affordable price, CVC will offer all of that! Hands down the best education under such category! If you’re a musician here in the DFW area, this school is a must!

If you are an out of state student, DO NOT ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM!!!! (I hope that the instate process is a bit easier) The financial aid process is excruciatingly painful!!! The registration process is excruciating painful!!! Almost no one who answers the phone, if they answer the phone, is willing to help you!!!! My daughter had A's in two of her classes until she submittted her final projects which she had worked on for weeks and they were not happy with the format, so they failed her!! No one should fail a class because of a formatting issue that an instructor wasn't wiling to clarify and because the computer system is unreliable and down a great deal of the time. Its very difficult to work a full-time veterinary assistant job and complete 20-25 hours of online schoolwork anyway, but when you are 17 hours away from the campus, its even harder. I have enrolled 3 children in different colleges and this is most ridiculous process I have ever seen. Its almost as if they want people to fail. Please do not be fooled by the information that says this is a top rated program.
