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 consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

I cannot recommend this college to anyone. I had a horrible experience when I went to Cincy State. The majority of the instructors that I had were flat out lazy and would be 10 to 15 minutes late to class. Several of them would wait until the very last moment to post grades. I approached several of my instructors in the past about my grades, and they told me they would have grades up by the end of the week. They never did until the end of the semester, so you would never know how you were doing until the semester ended. The marketing instructor I had lost one of my tests and she never bother to tell me about it until the end of the semester. She sends me an email informing me that I never "took" the missing test and needed me to come in to make it up before grades were due. Well, by then I was already on vacation with my family and couldn't drive back from Florida. I had one Algebra instructor who had a very difficult time trying to explain how he solved a problem. He also relied too much on PowerPoint slides that were clear as mud.Not all of the instructors that I had were terrible. There were a few that I had who genuinely cared about our education and were passionate about teaching. Unfortunately, the majority of them did not care. My counselor left a lot to be desired. She was a messy and unorganized woman. She, at one point, told me did not believe me when I tried to talk to her about the issues I was having with my instructors. I believe she eventually got tired of me and had me reassigned to another counselor who was even worse. At this point my GPA had hit rock bottom because I never knew how well I was doing in some of my classes. My new counselor had the gall to tell me I should change my major. He also never wanted to listen to my concerns about several of the instructors. After getting so frustrated with him and the college I dropped out.My problems with the college did not end there. After taking a year off from school, I decided to go to UC Blue Ash to finish my college education. I decided to get my college transcript from Cincy State so I didn't have to retake the general education classes. That process was like pulling teeth. It was so hard to get my transcripts. What should have been one trip ended up being five trips down to the college to see if they were ready. Eventually I got what I needed and did not look back.There were plenty of other issues with the college when I was there. The computers in the student labs were virus and malware ridden. The food there was expensive and ok. Parking was a nightmare. Parking at the time was not covered in the tuition and a pass would cost you $50 which was the cheaper option or else you would have to pay $5 to exit the parking lot. Their Blackboard system was a joke. It was unusable because it would crash or go undo periodical maintenance which made online classes very difficult.There are better colleges in the tri-state area where you get your money's worth. I do not recommend this place and advise checking out UC's community college branches.

Horrible. Looking to potentially enroll at Cincinnati State and they had be sign up for a blackboard account and added classes to my cart not did not confirm enrollment. They ended up billing me for classes I was not even registered for and said they could subtract the tuition but couldn't get rid of a $25 convience fee. I never physically added these classes to my cart. The counselor did. I still ended up paying the fee for a faculty members actions

Your experience here really depends on the people you surround yourself with and the instructors in your program. I had a rough start but then started doing my due diligence when it came to selecting a course instructor. I highly recommend CState's Environmental Engineering Technologies program if you're looking for a two year degree in the field!

I had a lot of great teachers at Cincinnati State. Yes you will get your occasional teacher who is unorganized, there is one in every profession. I like how you can get enrolled in one day with Fast Track. Tuition is cheap you get what you pay for. Brandon Montoya was the best A and P teacher ever highly recommend him if the class is in your curriculum. I used to work as a federal work study in the admission department receiving all transcripts and sending all emails in regards to placement testing. Being a work study takes money off your tuition and gave me time to study and work on homework. Enrollment was quick and easy for me when I applied there in 2016. I really liked the school the schedule was way easier to put into my busy working schedule.
