Graduation Rate

Loading...
9%
BELOW AVERAGE

College of Southern Nevada graduation rate is below the national average.

9% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to College of Southern Nevada 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 an extensive 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

Went to pick up my daughter and was appalled to see CNN on the TV's in the lobby. Perhaps they could choose a channel that does not have a long history of falsified, politically charged statements. I'm not suggesting fox news but maybe something appropriate for all learners and not just the left leaning. A place of education should focus on just that, education. They will get plenty of politics in later life.

Nightmare, they have no organization, staff especially the cashier, are so rude. No one knows how to do anything its extremly fustrating.

Overall Rating:

While there are a select group of professors that go above and beyond to help their students achieve, this place is a joke. From top to bottom, lack of communication and irresponsible staff members. I have been here two years, I am almost wrapping up my AA, and I can tell you that I honestly feel like the staff members ( FA, registration, counselors etc) do not make the students education a priority. They have no "customer service" skills and students education and lives are constantly affected by the lack of communication and skills from this school. I have experienced this at each of the three campuses. They have wasted so much of my time and money and despite my attempts to reach out to deans and supervisors, I have yet to come across anyone who even cares this is happening.

Overall Rating:

The professors are great, so I will at least give them that. The office staff are unprofessional and poorly trained. The federal aid staff can never tell you anything, gives you false amounts then tells you "sorry, we can't change anything about it." This is the third semester I have had issues with the office. I truly wish I had changed schools strictly because of this.
