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 a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration 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 institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Central Oregon Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Not friendly for transfers or people with careers seeking to further education. “Bobcat welcome” a mandatory slide show about “we want you to succeed” it takes a half hour plus and is not friendly on many mobile devices including tablets. When I say mandatory I mean you cannot even talk to an advisor until after the program says you’ve completed it. Which is frustrating because the program itself doesn’t always acknowledge when you’ve completed a section resulting in having to listen to the same amateur video multiple times. Plus it’s about as useful as a pep rally with little to no useful information for experienced students. They go over resources available [at every community college] but not when or who to contact.Next step you have to sit and wait during open advising hours (new students absolutely cannot schedule appointments.) which even if you show up early you’ll be waiting at least 2 hours. It’s on a first come first serve basis so even if you show up in the time frame you can be turned away. Then the advisor tells you they aren’t your advisor, the meeting isn’t to advise you, it’s to make sure you know how to register for courses. (Which could’ve easily been implemented into the Bobcat welcome making it more useful) But again it’s a mandatory meeting and you cannot sign up for courses until you meet with this person; there is a hold on registration until they lift it post “advising”Then you have to take a course on how to take online classes before being eligible for online courses, even if you have taken online courses before.I asked to sit in on a class and talk to instructors about teaching style and expectations, and that wasn’t something they offered.If you’re just getting out of high school looking for cheap education to transfer later this is a viable option. If you already work full time and want to take flexible online courses; look elsewhere. If you want to be able to talk to instructors and have an idea of what expectations will be for you or talk about special needs/circumstances; look elsewhere.There are better community colleges out there. If you live in the area, you may do alright, but it’s definitely not worth moving here for.

While I did feel as though the teaching staff was excellent and that the classes I took were very informative, the financial aid office and it's staff were oftentimes very hostile and unwilling to give me any actual help, instead only giving me vague, passive-aggressive answers and stopped giving me financial aid solely because I was tricked into thinking that all of my high school to college credits counted on my transcript when they did not, but they decided that even though I didn't receive financial aid for these credits that they won't even bother to recognize that I still shouldn't have any aid despite having good grades and only needing to complete one more semester. I cannot wait to never set foot here again because they've absolutely ruined me financially ever since I was in high school.

Overall Rating:

Went here for a year, and it just wasn't for me due to my disability. I learn by living, not sitting in a classroom. Doesn't change that the professors and faculty were great and willing to help me with my struggles, and I made a few friends. I would ideally like to do something in IT, which I know can be done without college, although it's a much harder path than going to college and getting a degree in networking or something. If I ever do decide to go back to school, I'll come here to get my general education, and then go to Oregon State or Washington State to finish my BS.
