Graduation Rate

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 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 schools.

I earned two degrees here at the same time. Many seem to complain, but I have found that in life you get out what you put in. This is a starting point for your career. If you think you aren't learning enough you should go above and beyond. Read more of the books that you're assigned. Reach out more to your instructors and stay after class. I recommend highly that you start internship in the beginning of your second year. The advisors and staff are there for a reason. They are there to help you. They want nothing more than for you to succeed. If you want to succeed don't get on here and give a bad rating. Get to work!

A majority of the positive reviews on this site are biased and are from the staff. Please, heed the warnings that you see here. Some of these positive comments come as a result of the staff coercing someone to post a positive review. Please, do not believe the positive reviews - for the sake of your wallet and academic progress. Coming to this college was nothing but a huge waste of time and money.By far the worst college ON THE PLANET. Please, go anywhere else but here. A lot of the credits do not transfer, the staff is rude and doesn't care about you, and a professor at Sinclair told me that they consider these classes to be sub-standard. Don't waste your time or money. The only thing they care about is your money.I understand that you may want to attend a community college because it's cheaper, but do keep in mind that you only get what you pay for and at clark state that isn't much! Low tuition fees = low quality institution. The professors are not here because they want to ensure the success of their students. They're here to collect a paycheck and enhance the appearance of their resumes.

DO NOT GO to the nursing school! But I know that students have no choice but to go and pour their money to this horrible nursing school. I BEG THAT SOMEBODY LOOK AT THE PICTURES OF THE GRADUATING CLASSES WHAT ARE THEIR LAST NAMES? WHY IS THE PASSING RATE OF THIS SCHOOL SO LOW? WHAT RACE ARE THEY? THIS AREA IN OHIO HAS AN AWFUL HISTORY OF SEGREGATION PERPETRATED BY TEACHERS AND NURSES.This area makes money off of the poor by purposely flunking them out of the educational system. Way to go Mary Cornell. Please somebody find a way to pull together a class action law suit. PLEASE SHUT DOWN THIS SCHOOL!!! You are forced to sign a waiver to hide their bias testing. Of course you are going to weed out people with confusing miss spelled, poor grammered tests. The final that you did not even write yourselves. How can you test on something you don’t know about? How can you waste a semester evading information then the test covers things that are not even on the book? What an easy way to make money. Testing on things that you do not even know if it’s on the exam? Way to pass students until it’s too late for them to withdraw. You pass only the few that are willing to suck up and stroke the teacher out of percentage points on these exams of nothing. Way to be bias and racist in dividing your class and have their grade depend on the answers on how ever you want. There is no real rhyme and reason. You just pass who ever walks up to you Dala Dewitt and if you like them you give those points out of these ridiculous quizzes. All of the teachers are part of this system. They are the daughters of Springfield Politicians. This is a huge political money train that feeds off the poor. Please somebody why is there no regulations on this? I can easily put together quizzes that do not make sense as a teacher/professor/adjunct then scan-tron in the good scores for the students I like. They say testing does not lie? Clark state lies and then they lower your score in order for a C average so they do not lose their nursing accreditation. Who can I call the news? There are no regulators the money is corrupt!

Clark State will get you training and credentials. What you do with it is up to you. I choose to continue my education and am grateful for the affordable price and quality education available. If you want to you can do more work than is asked of you. You can also read more of the books than what may be required. That is if you want to take your own education seriously. I had to stay up every semester and make sure my financial side was also taken care of. If I could do it again I recommend entering internship work for your field by the start of your second year. Also, always utilize the advisors and staff. Always! If you don't find an answer you were looking for maybe someone else may help solve the problem from within.
