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 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.

I loved going here and wish that I was able to re enroll here, but By the time I move back to NC, I’ll be an hour away. I’ve had very nice instructors. Especially when i was in the CNA program. My only issue with them was for the two years I had been there, I had roughly 7 advisors. The first time I enrolled I was set to be a PA. After the first semester I decided on the ADN program. My advisor didn’t set up my plan right and had me for AA (nothing wrong with that but adds extra classes that Are not required for ADN). Then After 2 tries I finally got them to change it to ADN like it was supposed to be. One of my advisor’s though ( I won’t say her name to respect her privacy) screwed me over big time. I had asked if DCCC had microbiology that I could take (as I was moving to CA to be with my husband who is in the military) and she said no. I needed that classes so I could jump into the nursing program in CA. Come to find out after the semester was over, my friend told me she was in micro and that they had always had it and that she didn’t understand why she lied about it. Luckily she was fired. That was my only issues with this school. Other than that, I loved it!

The teacher Ms.Kennedy in the Cosmetology department is very rude to clients. She is plain rude to the Students failing students for petty items.. such as a baggy that has wrinkles in it. She should retire and needs to find another job elsewhere. Wonder if she has a job outside of this college.. i sure hope not ...

Overall Rating:

The MSF course here is pretty crappy. The instructor Dom kinda had a chip on his shoulder the entire time with hardly any personality. The motorcycles are literally falling apart or hardly running from poor maintenance. If it wasn’t the cheapest MSF course I could find I wouldn’t have taken it there. I passed the class which is all I care about but there needs to be updates to their motorcycle inventory.
