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 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 schools.

Incompetence at it's finest! I have been to several colleges in my time and this one has to rank as the worst I have ever applied to or considered attending. Between never getting back to you when you call, giving you the incorrect information, refusing to transfer credits, etc, I would avoid coming here. Please note, I was given a full tuition + full fees + full books scholarship to return to school to get a degree in business with a concentration in finance. How bad does a school have to be for a person like me who is trying to collect a degree in every letter of the alphabet and who loves school to not want to get a FREE degree? There is a reason the graduation rate (per FAFSA) is only 7%. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!

Great school and great teachers. I'm currently taking an online and on campus class. The teachers are such a big help and want to see you succeed. I'm even from Pa and would much rather travel for this kind of environment I have at this school. Its well worth it!!

Not a fan. Explained everything about coming in do complete 1 class for my Bachelors. They told me to apply for a private loan and grants. I told them that my other school told me I couldn't get any grants or loans, they told me that was a lie and that I could. So I apply for both, then 2 and half weeks after the start of this and 1 week past drop dates, they come to me and tell me no aid available and I am stuck with a loan I can't pay because of listening to their advisers. I know have to drop my class 3 weeks in, very unprofessional. Really rethinking m,y son doing a 2 year degree there.

I would give this place 0 stars if I could. I'm currently attempting to go since I had a union scholarship that was supposed to cover everything. However, I'm quickly learning that this school seems more like a scam to take people's financial aid and not help them better themselves at all.I have been calling the school back and forth, and it's extremely difficult to get anyone on the phone if you have problems. For example, when I had issues with accessing a textbook, it took two days to even be able to talk to someone about this. When it comes to financial aid, when I ask them questions about what to do, they have an attitude. They almost seem angry that you're asking them any questions. Normally, I try to be patient and keep things professional, but there's only so much hostility a person can take.At this point, I'm almost ready to call up FAFSA, ask them if they can cancel it, and make sure the school does not receive a single dime. It's the start of the semester, and I'm already tired of dealing with the school either being evasive, or downright mean when I'm simply trying to figure out what I need in order to have my papers processed.Lastly, this school claims to be "at you're own pace" That's a damn lie. I have a professor that emailed the class, claiming that the course is NOT at your own pace, and that things are always do by Sunday of next week. And you can't even wait till the last day things are due to complete class discussion questions because she won't accept it (meaning you technically have one day less).This school is a scam. The people working there seem to hate their jobs, let alone their lives. And the school is nothing but false advertising. Go elsewhere.

I'm doing the online classes for business management and love it. Sometimes the pace is quick since I work full-time and have a family life. It was supposed to be self paced for this reason. It's not with all instructors. This being said, I still love it. I would recommend it to all.
