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 take into consideration 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.

This college is an absolute joke. First, if you need to talk with someone good luck. They will never return a phone call ever. If you go to their campus they seem too busy to help. Emails are a hit or miss and will take a couple days for a response. Next, if you going for a degree here, make sure they offer all the classes here. They didn't for criminal justice and I had to Pitt CC to finish my degree. Also, their office hours is more of a suggested time for them. On base campus never seems to be open. Went their today at 2:00 (they close at 2:30), and of course no one was there. Take it from someone who has been going here for 2 1/2 years, go somewhere else. They don't care about their students.

Craven County community College is a joke. The financial aide office cannot do student loans, guessing because they are absolutely abismal at retention/graduation rates. The school cannot seem to get the administrative paperwork together for either mailing out transcripts correctly (have proof that they were requested, but never sent) or for reporting to the FAFSA/department of education that you are actually enrolled, so you have to pay on previous loans while attending full time because they cannot get your stuff together. And then when you complete a program with only SIX graduates, they cannot get the paperwork to the state board/testing authority in the promised amount of time. It's not like there are 50 ot 60 records that need to be processed. Nevermind the fact that a syllabus is a "suggestion of grading and required work", with things being added at the whim of a program director, or required time allotments to complete work changed whenever the staff decides. Stay away. Go to Lenoir or Carteret if you need a community College. No community College could be worse!

Heavenly Craven Community College the nicest thing that ever happen to me. CCC is of the utmost practical pleasant learning environment not to be missed. 1 Million per cent better than university. Parents send their children off with high expectations to big universities where students are swallowed up and they can easily disappear. Some universities have a 90% attrition rate of Freshmen drop out and failure. The dorm experience at university can be a series of nightmare rituals and students find themselves feeling hopeless lost and in horrendous debt. The smart start is to attend Craven Community College. Take all the classes you want to take. Keep coming back until graduation and then attend the university classes for a bachelors degree on the Craven Community College Campus. Stay local. Live good. Study in an aesthetic garden like environment where you can breath easily relax walk between classes. On break with your classmates or by yourself;You All can even chat with the Vice President.The doors are wide open to keep you coming back for more wonderful learning and skill set upgrades. You will love the college. It was the happiest special place to build yourself up. Don't miss out. If you live in New Bern; Apprenticeship programs are in the offering and work study is most opportune for students. The price for an education at Craven is an enriching empowering bargain of a life time. The campus Chief of Police Colonel Jay Logan held bible classes for us at lunch time. If you have a love for golf and leisure sports;A degree is on the table as a degree in aerospace technology. The library is quiet and the computer lab is well managed even in the hours of the evening. Ample parking and micro minutes in travel time. The teachers are always available for consultation between classes. If you require tutoring one on one;The math lab is open with qualified work study students ready to help you. You will feel safe learn a lot make Friends and be blessed with permanent memories of the happiest investment of your life;An education unlocking a multitude of doors for you The Student.
