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 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 educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Cleveland Community College

Overall Rating:

As an IT student, I've had a very mediocre experience studying for my double major (IT Networking and Systems Security). Just recently, however, I've gone through one of the most infuriating and stressful experiences I've had in years brought on by their NET-125 instructor. This instructor does not clearly list their standards for submitting work, and I've been given several zeroes for completed work that was submitted in their entirety, or missing one or so minor parts (such as leaving a comment saying you did the work). After several attempts to contact this instructor with no response, I've given up trying to talk with them about these grades.For this reason and several others, I'm led to believe that this instructor does not care about the success of their students, contradictory to what they like to advertise. Their habit of giving zeroes for missing small portions of assignments that never actually pertain to furthering the students' education or demonstrate a student's competency with the material they've learned is a pointless and detestable practice. Would an instructor with a good work ethic and a genuine desire to teach and cultivate learning in their students give out the absolute worst grades possible to the pupils who are actively learning and submitting nearly completed work, but miss out on a few small details?
