Graduation Rate

Loading...
42%
BELOW AVERAGE

Dunwoody College of Technology graduation rate is below the national average.

42% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Dunwoody 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 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 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.

Automotive program is incredible. Every automotive instructor is excellent. Have tons of dozens of new cars to work on. Would give a 10 / 5. Must be ready to apply yourself

Overall Rating:

They promised me a great HVAC career, 30k later now I'm an apprentice electrician and my school is paid for. It's a for profit college, if you want to get into a trade, I work with a lot of people that went to MCTC, or pretty much any public trade school. Don't waste your time or money.

Expensive as heck, some teachers care about the students, construction managemnet is a HORRIBLE program but hey, if they see "DUNWOODY" on your resume you'll get a job.

Overall Rating:

Bad I T equipment, classes not available yr round, therefore take unnecessary classes, expensive and few classes transfer to other colleges, finance office gives students more loans than requested

Overall Rating:

The staff at this college is absolutely phenomenal (or at least the staff I have meet this far). They went out of their way to help me in a situation I didn't ever think would have a resolution. In addition, this school proves you don't need a 4 year degree to get an amazing job as most of their degree programs are 2 years, yet they still retain an amazing job placement rate.
