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 indicator 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 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 Douglas Education Center

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

The instructors were nice but the program for medical assisting is misleading. They assure that you will get a job and say that they will help you get a job. They do not. When I left the program, I learned very little to what I actually used in the career field. There was not enough time spent on subjects that actually needed to be focused on. Other students in the class did not take the course seriously and for this, the rest of us that would take it seriously would suffer. For one student did not do the research and work up to the clinical procedures, the whole class was behind. My education felt like it was in the hands of people that did not even want to be there because if they did, they would have done the work. This is not the instructors faults, however, the instructors should not hold up classes, learning and moving forward because there are people not wanting to do what they are supposed to for the courses. Taking responsibility and accountability goes a long way in life.

I'm a graduate from the Savini SFX School, and I will state, I loved the program and the instructors (Jerry, Ronzio, Chris, Dejah, Will, Jesse and Donna), the staff was decent (some were hit or miss). I reccomend the course. You get what you put into it....and make sure you get credit for the work you do, don't do extra work and let others take credit for it.
