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 take into consideration 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.

Great TRiO Program and great college. Though there were not many summer classes to choose from and many classes did not work around the bus schedule. But over all they still helped me to succeed in getting my AAOT. I highly recommend this college to anybody seeking a degree.

Did an internship with maintenance crew through Job Corps. Not sure about the classes themselves, but the people and general environment is great. Beautiful buildings too.

Overall Rating:

Many of the extracurricular classes offered at this college are absolutely overrated. I eventually got my AA degree here, but I know I could have done it without all the headache that I had to go through.

Social-environmental minded students:---As a later life returning student, Clatsop Community College instructors reinforced my need to study the market collapse. The advising and instruction team, led for me Professor Bunch, allowed me to progress onto Evergreen State College and design a major studying energy economics. After graduating from Evergreen my interests have led me into my home, the local legislative arena at the Olympian State Capitol, in support of solar economics.------My fondness for politics and environment, coupled with Clatsop leadership to offer me an opportunity to earn an AA in General Studies. My fortune was an initial observance that inspired me to actively study the remodel, and in particular the installation of the 42.5 KW sighted solar. I incorporated the subject into my first quarter studies at Clatsop and all my business project assignments, where applicable.------I was allowed an opportunity to further my independent research within the curriculum of most of my classes at Clatsop Community College and later at Evergreen. Each independent research project assigned me would end up solar economics. The subject became my focus and later my major at Evergreen State.------Clatsop Community College provided the tools necessary to rebuild my life, form the distraught nature I personally acquired, due the 2008 market collapse. I never looked back.------My thanks to the wonderful faculty at Clatsop; they admitted a man in his later year’s entrance, when the market collapse was extinguishing his future as well as his investments.------Do not follow me nor seek my example, seek your dream through the great leaders teaching community values, at Clatsop Community College. They are the ones!
