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 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 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 educational institutions.

The applied for a part-time position on the Fort Hood campus and I've been following up by telephone to find out if they've selected anyone for the position on a weekly basis. The only response was, "HR is currently reviewing applicants." I was surprise they have re-advertised the position without notifying applicants they were not selected.

You will notice after you get on campus that the school has no concern about you. you will expect to wait 4 hours or more to see a advisor so plan a whole day. Don’t let the school lie to you about preparing you for the future they are just like any other business they only care about the money. There staffing is terrible burnt out professors, some bearly even speak English. You get what u get from this school. The only positive about the school is that it is relitivly cheap however the board of directors keeps raising the touition cost even though they are very heavily subsidized by the local tax payer. Facility’s are laughable buildings are out dated plumbing and sewer system out of date. The school seems to be mismanaging there funds concidering the low volume of legitimate professors in high demand fields and there understaffing in the high demand registration processes. Also notice the response from the university on these reviews nothing about trying to fix the issues in this greedy school it truly shows they don’t care about you they just want ur money.

today jul 17 I spend 3 hours in the waiting room just to change my degree and get a degree plan for the va people next door, this is no sense, people in the front desk dont give a .... because they are getting pay they dont know what number you are because they dont track that because is a lot of people than leave and then come back... I have to change my degree because they give the only class I need to graduate in summer so they pretend I lose one year waiting for them, this people threat everyone like morons like people without education I have a ba in business administration and for real this is not a good way to treat clients 3 hours just to see a person that sometimes no have idea if he or she dont have the book of classes there what the student need and what is happening and why students are making this decisions , also be prepare if you are a disabled veteran ctc have the great idea to bring hight scholarships to the campus this young kids use the fathers car with dv plates and park in the dv parkings, dont bother to let the campus police know the answer is they can do anything because is illegal to ask someone for a veteran identification to check if is disable or not, handicap spaces change depends on the reunions important people in the campus have if they need parking spots for vips they take the handicapped spaces put a black wood on the top of the handicapped logo and good to go, this place is a joke

I’m giving it one star because none is not an option. They advertise as being ideal for a working student because they offer evening, weekend, and online courses. They don’t tell you those classes offered at those times are mostly filler classes that have nothing to do with obtaining an actual degree (like P.E. Credits) and in order to take any actual classes of value you must be available during regular business hours throughout the week or stay up til midnight the night registration opens and pray you are one of the first 30 people to hit submit for the one or two evening science classes offered. I’ve been there 4 years, and am still nowhere closer to getting an associates degree (which is usually obtainable in two) than I was when I started. Every year the requirements change and you need prerequisites for all of your prerequisites (that they don’t tell you about ahead of time). They will bleed your FASFA dry, then tell you that you chose the wrong degree plan, even though they do not allow you to enroll without first speaking to an advisor to set up your degree plan. Staff is never available to speak with you, and if they are, good luck getting consistent information. Overall, it’s a terrible experience. Save yourself the headache and just go somewhere else.

Overall Rating:

Very expensive for no instruction or education. You will learn nothing to pay for a degree. They will take your money, and you Gi Bill money if you are a veteran and RUN. Customer service is COMPLETELY unhelpful and the rules of how to actually get in a class as an online student is FOREVER changing. Today one standard, tomorrow another. Just go to a university, spend less, get and education and not constant headaches from their incompetent staff. The frustration they cause is not worth it. And yes I am reviewing this from my STUDENT account. I am a vet. I am an online student (which costs them so much less because the teachers do NOTHING), and I pay far more than an in class student with all their overhead. it is just impossible to deal with them on the phone. They are HORRIBLE. Don't waste your time or GI Bill to go here. Easy to get in, but they make it impossible to make any headway.
