Graduation Rate

Loading...
12%
BELOW AVERAGE

Central Alabama Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

12% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Central Alabama Community 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 indicator 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 institutions.

Terrible when it comes to answering phone calls. I have tried every number in the directory and are still not able to get info. about my transcripts because no one will answer their phone!

This place shouldn't even be called a school. They have caused me so much suffering the last few years. I got a loan to go here, and it was a huge mistake. I'm just now getting it paid off, even though I dropped out 6 months in. Im probably going to have to get a lawyer to get the rest on my money back. Half of my so called "professors" were extreamly rude, refused to help me with anything. Eventhough I was paying 500 dollars for the class I felt very unwelcome. The final straw is when I had a sprained ankle, and I pulled up next to the door, to literally go 30 feet to drop a paper off on a desk, in the 30 seconds of doing it, a fat rent a cop is flying across the parking lot, to cut me off, and illegally detain me and give me a ticket. Literally parked there for less then one minute. I could not deal with this usurpitation, it took everything I had not to break that punks neck.If you are a young man or women, and you are unsure about what you should do in your life. Don't let people pressure you into going to college. Take a year or two off, and work if you need too. College cost a ridiculously large amount of money, because the government basically guarantees it to anyone who wants to go. Make sure you are on a path to a successful and fulfilling career. It took me 5 years in the real world to pay back a 5000 dollar loan. If you are going to college. You better be sure that you WILL be able to get a good job, making in excess of 36,000 a year, or you will not be able to afford you loan.There are also much better colleges and trade schools you can go to. Dont waste your money on this place.

Graduated in 2013 still in 2017 have not received my diploma (that I paid for) and I have tried to get it multiple times and was told "well organizations will look at your transcripts anyway". Very disorganized and most office workers aren't willing to do anything for you. My transcripts also got messed up somehow and now after 2 overseas deployments trying to go back to school has become a nightmare!!
