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 account 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 institutions.

I am from Baltimore, Maryland. My daughter currently goes to Coahoma and plays softball on a schlorship. She started at age 17 and I was terrified to let her go but when she returned for Thanksgiving break she had grown so much. The school helped her flourish and truly grow up. Not only does she maintain her GPA she lives in the dorms and keeps up on her everyday schedule.
