Graduation Rate

Loading...
15%
BELOW AVERAGE

CUNY New York City College of Technology graduation rate is below the national average.

15% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to CUNY New York City College of Technology 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 picture. 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 CUNY New York City College of Technology

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I was a Communications Design student studying 3D animation.I so badly want to give 5 stars. The department staff is AMAZING!!! The students are very polite, kind and passionate about their work. During my entire degree, didn't come across a single jerk. Great community. Met some of the best people in my life here, including teachers!However... The staff that runs the school itself (not the departments) simply don't do their jobs. They just couldn't care less about you.And then my final gripe is, wow did I need to take a TON of unrelated prerequisite courses. So much wasted time and money on so many unessessary courses. This really bugs me so much because when I got a related course, it was GREAT!I definitely absolutely would recommend attending here. However, I STRONGLY recommend you look into the BA program. It will allow you to design your own curriculum allowing you to not take garbage courses you couldn't care less about. I wish I knew about BA, but I only found out in my last semester. If you're reading this and aren't close to graduating, GET OFF GOOGLE AND SIGN UP FOR BA!!!

Currently studying in this college. One of the best colleges under The City University of New York. Everyone is friendly. and a lot of opportunities hang around the college. A great place to start a career.

Overall Rating:

Terrible college. Sent my tuition bill to collections without even notifying me once. The professors and facility are mediocre, and even diploma doesn’t have any value for advanced job market. I would avoid this college, and rather go to Brooklyn college instead. This college shouldn’t be named as technology school, because everything at this school is outdated. Beware you will be screwed at this college. This college should go back to trade school, or community college.

My 5 stars goes to Ms. Nicola in the student welcome center. She's the only one I could get to help a confused fairly new student after 3 days or more of running around. She was so patient with such a calming, kind voice. I hope there are others at the school like her. Please God🙏🏿
