Graduation Rate

Loading...
39%
BELOW AVERAGE

Columbia College graduation rate is below the national average.

39% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Columbia College 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 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 Columbia College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I graduated with an Accounting degree from here. The education is okay and their online program is extremely flexible. Downside is the admin. They claim to help military and spouses but I never once received discounted tuition or a tuition-free course (excuse- they didn't know how to put it in the system.) Also- I have a finance minor that they refuse to put on my transcript. My academic advisor did not let me know that I had the minor and when asked they couldn't look up who my advisor is. I was screwed out of almost a grand and a minor that they will not appeal from errors on their end. Advice- Don't waste your time! I am frustrated with their claim to be so "military friendly" and then screw them over later.

An excellent school offering a wide variety of degrees at the Associates, Bachelors and Masters level!

Overall Rating:

This institution is horribly ran, and should be revamped from top to bottom. I have nothing positive to say about it from the teaching staff, to the enrollment counselors, to the unprofessionalism and lack of answers of faculty and staff. Biggest waste of time and money I've ever had.

I'm AD military and work 50+ hrs a week on shift hrs. I was a bit hesitant to begin college again, but the experience so far has actually been really good, albeit time consuming. The enrollment/beginning wasn't bad or difficult, and the academic advisor was there to guide me through everything. I'm limited to online courses, and it's been much more taxing, and time extensive than any brick-mortar course I've taken. The course makes up for its lack of in-class time with regularly assigned papers (2-3x 2-4 pages each weekly + discussions plus midterm + final). I've never seen so many paper assignments in any brick-mortar environment, so if your anticipating a easier online education, your probably wrong. The instructor is responsive, and so far the course has been rewarding, and challenging.

Where do I start. I enrolled and thought I was going to a great college. It's not the worst but definitely not the best. When I started I never received credit for having an associates degree, which they knew I had. I mentioned this to my advisor and nothing was done. I ended up taking extra classes that should have been counted and transferred. I finally received credit for it like a year or so afterwards. A lot of help that's going to do if I already was forced to take the classes. Let's not get on Melissa Jusino. All she does is texts the whole time you are trying to register or ask questions. I called her for a week straight with no response. Not to mention she tried to register me for classes I didn't need. I had to tell her that I didn't need those classes. Maybe if she wasn't texting, she would've known what was going on. I was told by my previous college to go here since they had a new agreement. Big mistakes I should've went to the start university that would've took all of my credits. They definitely had me fooled. They put on a good show until it's time to get credits for any transfers. They want the money at the end of the day. I don't mind paying because I'm receiving an education but I do mind having to repeat classes or not receiving the proper credit for classes because they dropped the ball. It's crazy because I literally just told a friend to go here and I had to text him back and say please don't.
