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 indicator 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 schools.

I'm been a student for more than a year and I can tell you that the Advising Service here is just TERRIBLE!!! They reckless and probably didn't know that their job is to ADVISE student, not just to make the studying even HARDER!!!! I registered last Summer for Business major, because I'm a undergraduate student, I took the placement test and they said I have to took Pre-Calculus. I didn't familiar with their online system so I come to be "advised" for class that I need to take. The lady that called herself "Adviser" but then mess up everything. She registered me to "Pre-Calculus" while the class that I need for my major is "BUSINESS Pre-Calculus" which is totally difference class! That class cost me more than the one I needed and the material is also a half more expensive. I just can't understand how a "Adviser" can make that huge mistake while she totally have a whole list of class required for my major right in front of her? Unfortunately, I didn't know this mistake until I try to register for my Business Calculus (This time I do it myself through the website) and the system refused to let me register because I didn't complete my Pre-Calculus! I bring this to another adviser and they substitute the course. But things even get more INTERESTING when I go to Calculus class. They use the same material with the Business Pre-Cal which is I didn't buy because I was registered into "PRE-CAL"!!!!! So now I have to spend MORE money to buy the material!!!! RIDICULOUS!!!! Why I'm paying for someone else's FAULT ????!!!!!

The more time I spend at this school the more I believe they are Racist and have a very bias approach on Minority’s success rate. From administration down to secuirity. Any situation that minorities are involved in please believe they are automatically wrong! The professors can accuse you of cheating and with NO PROOF and this school allows the professors to determine your fait an success at this school. Interesting right!? The professor can tell you all semester that “Your final will replace your lowest test grade, end of semester he refuse to do it.” This scholl wilk allow these professor to not honor what he has said all semester. Another example “If a teacher decides to not help you in a class theg are teaching, they school wont force them.They will just say “Oh its not in her contract she doesn't have to do it. Nevertheless, I believe that some of the european students who attends this school are related to some of the individuals in administration. Just base off how they make decisions. The white students are allowed to use the N word towards miniority students and this school has no consequence for that. Which means they are in support of the disrespect. I would not suggest Miniroities coming here. Go to a HBCU where we are among our own kind! You complain they hide they complaints, ignore the complaints. Wish I spent these 3 years of school at a HBC or somewhere else!
