Graduation Rate

Loading...
10%
BELOW AVERAGE

Clark State Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

10% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Clark State Community 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 indicator 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 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Clark State Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

This whole process of going to college has been a nightmare. It's impossible to get anyone to help with financial aid. I have visited at least three times this month and called/emailed countless times but can't get anything resolved. The college has made several errors on paperwork and won't admit the wrong doing is on their part. Please do not waste your time or energy on this place. If you want a great JUCO, then try Sinclair. They know what they are doing.

A great place to take your general education courses. Tuition is very reasonable.

Overall Rating:

Pretty dreadful experience. My recommendation is to get in and get out with a degree as quick as possible and start work experience. Profs are good, but admin/financial aid is a nightmare. I understand they must hate their job and have to deal with a highly dreadful student base, but in even writing this review, I am reliving the trauma of having to actually do business with these humans.

Overall Rating:

This "college" is absolutely terrible. I honestly cannot believe I wasted as much time as I did here. This place is nothing but a complete scam. Go to a real University instead.

My daughter has been trying to reach out to Clark to attend this Fall and NOBODY has returned her messages or calls. So I decided to check into the ratings on this community college. After reading some of the reviews with low ratings I’m understanding why Clark will not return my daughters calls or messages. I’m willing to try one more time in the hopes of getting an explanation. However, if I cannot get a hold of anyone, then I will take it that this is my sign that Clark is obviously NOT the college for my daughter. I would rather look for another college for her to attend with a much better education. if Clark cannot get their stuff together to return messages and called to students that are wanting to attend a hen how can they have their stuff together to teach students. Like I said.... Some of the reviews I read here pretty much tells it all. Thank you for some of the warnings in the reviews.
