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 picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Took a lot of classes at College of the Mainland through the beginning of my college career. They have some good basic and introduction classes, and have a lot of certifications you can earn. They work with high school students in collegiate program, which allows high school students to take intro level college classes.I would definitely recommend doing this if you are a high school student. This will give you a big advantage coming out of high school, and allows you to possibly graduate high school with an associate’s degree.

If you plan on taking the nursing program here and you absolutely have to apply to this college, let me give you a run down of what to expect and my experience at this place.Don’t expect your teachers to care that you payed your money for them to teach you nursing. You will need to teach yourself because they are not teachers, they are payed to waste your time.You will have to argue with administrative about your grades, your immunizations, their teachers inability to run a classroom, and also their behavior and lateness.This is a program run by incompetent females so expect the HBIC attitude. If you’ve ever worked in a female dominated office, expect the same bs that you see there, here.They have been sued before for their lack of effort in teachingThey recommend you not to work because they don’t know their own schedule. Our teacher forgot that we had clinicals with her at st Joseph. We called her and woke her up. She shows up an hour and a half late and had the nerve to demand us to on time and would take no excuse for tardiness or absences .They don’t have summer classesMore than half the people in my class didn’t make it to the second semesterTake nursing somewhere else if you can like online or a university. They seem to think their Poo don’t stink here when in fact it’s probably the worst experiences that I’ve had at a community college.No I am not a freshman or new to college or program life. Honestly I think Med school is easier to get into and in the long run being a doctor will pay more.

Overall Rating:

The machine shop is horrendous, more then half the machines don't even run. Let alone work properly. The instructor was a joke, he couldn't find anything and didn't even know his machines or where the tools were at. We spent the first 2 days watching YouTube videos. On the third day I tried to see if I could get a return on my money. They said, I couldn't and just try to stick with it. The instructor was hostile towards me because I pointed out all his failures as a teacher and a machinist in his shop. 100% this administration is all about wasting your time and money.
