Graduation Rate

Loading...
13%
BELOW AVERAGE

Century College graduation rate is below the national average.

13% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Century 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 a huge number of students. This index 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 institutions.

Century College is an excellent college. The teachers that I’ve had so far have been great and the other staff, like advisers are extremely helpful and always very polite. Would definitely recommend coming here if your looking to get your AA and or getting your AA and transferring to a four year college.

If you are planning on attending this college for IT please reconsider another option, here is why: First off the IT programs arent using industry standard software they try to save a few bucks and use freeware instead of actual security and virtualization software. Second the instructors at this school (at least the IT ones i have experienced) with the exception of one (luke a. hes actually awesome and knows his stuff) have little to no experience with the classes and software they are experiencing. I had an ex cop teach a windows server class who literally just read off an online tutorial and couldn't answer any questions as he is very unqualified to teach this class. I have also had another instructor who was a mobile device manager for a virtualization class. while this might not be terrible if he knew how to teach the program or had any knowledge about vmware, however he had nearly no knowledge about the software. and second he tried to teach the class using vmware workstation unlike the actual version ESXi that is an industry standard and the concepts do not transfer over. I had experience in ESXI HAD TO WALK THE INSTRUCTOR THROUGH THE ENTIRE SOFTWARE SETUP AND INSTALLATION ALONG WITH RUNNING THE PROGRAM. so in short i was paying to teach the teacher, nice. the main reason that i left this school for a real one was Israel Emmanuel. probably the worst instructor ever. So israel would show up to the 2.5hr class a few minutes late then rant for 20 minutes about how hard his life is grading our labs and would quickly overview the labs for 5 min point us to his youtube channel where he gave a very low quality instruction of what to do then leaves us to do the lab and doesn't return. I later had a file that got corrupted over spring break that i needed to do the midterm lab and i emailed him asap asking if i could get it from him. he asked me to come in and get it and when i did he was like "i dont have it its on another system" and offered no resolution. i contacted his dean (iddi adams) about leaving class and his dean setup a meeting with me which i drove in for and he wasn't even there according to his assistant, so i rescheduled and same thing. he then said he would call me which he finally did 3 days later and then contacted israel to get his side of the story. he then replied back saying israel wasnt leaving class and "surveyed students" regarding that and said he wasnt and countered it with "you aren't doing your work and your class grade reflects it" which is funny because i couldn't do my work or midterm as i was unable to use that needed corrupt file. I then contacted Iddis boss michael b. regarding this and his response was similar completely blowing off the point of his absence and leaving class early and saying i needed to start doing my work. so i went up a level and contacted the president of the school with my story and their emails along with statements from 4 other students in my classes confirming my claims, to which Michael replied back saying again i'm a poor student (getting a's and b's in my other classes) and not doing my work and i would not get my request of a drop and refund as well as saying israel was a top notch instructor and it was my slacking that's to blame for my class grade not at all that i wasn't provided the necessary materials to do my work. its funny that a few weeks after the semester ended everyone in his classes was refunded the amount that the certification exam was included with the class fee as the class was deemed "unprepared" for the exam. defiantly true as the exam was based on industry standard software not Israels crappy 1990's freeware. So in short i do not recommend this college if you can even call it that unless you like wasting money to learn absolutely nothing relevant to your future career.

I haven't been enrolled in this school, but at one point I was trying to get some information on a certificate they offer. I emailed a staff member (that was listed on their website) asking her some straight forward questions about the course. She replied with a link, I did not want a link, I wanted a knowledgeable person to speak to. I called the college to speak with a person and got automatic voice for like 4 minutes after pressing 1 for English, 3 for my reason for calling, 2 for area of study and so on. It was terrible.
