Graduation Rate


Eastern Gateway Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

24% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Eastern Gateway Community College 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 a huge 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 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.

EGCC make holding down a full time job and going to college easy with online classes. Credits don’t transfer well you have to retake classes you took if you take a major other than general.

Even when you make an appointment to talk to the only person who will pick up the phone, they still don't communicate between departments. It has been months to finally hear anything back from the issues I've had with this school. Easy enough set-up online, but poor execution. Good luck getting any answers.

I'm truly surprised at how many reviews there are of zero communication, registration being difficult, online difficulty, and credit transfers. I'm going to school for free because of the union (like most of their online students). My credits from 11 years ago transferred just fine. I did have to retake 2 classes, English classes which are vastly different than they were 11 years ago, but my credits were still applied elsewhere. Level of difficulty depends on an individual level of understanding the material. If online classes are hard, I can assure you that all of college is hard. I have always received call backs, help from admissions, emails, updates, and important information in a timely fashion. Registering has always been simple and whenever I have scheduled an advisement call they are exactly on time. I will say that there have been times when online maintenance is poorly scheduled (like the first week of Spring semester after a whole 4 weeks off), and there have been a few server issues since I began, but each time the student body was always given an extension for the time missed. All teachers are different just like real life. I have been disappointed in a couple of my teachers that were not helpful, one told me to hire a tutor when I asked too many questions and the other told me all the correct answers were in the book when I asked about a particular section I was confused about and did poorly answering on a quiz. Completely survived. If one is well organized, can manage their time, and be disciplined, EGCC is no different than any other online school. If online is your only option because of work and family life, or your only option because the union pays for it, beggars can't be choosers. This is an accredited college that many people attend for free, the staff cannot sit around and hold your hand until your feelings aren't hurt. Utilize your email, the online booking system, the student resource number, free online tutoring, sit down to make a study schedule and organize your life. It could be worse, some places take your money and disappear. EGCC is a good place to be.

This is the most unorganized college I've ever seen. I took online classes because of my husband's union and the experience has been very disappointing. They never return calls and very seldom emails. They lied three times about why I was terminated because every lie they told I proved it wrong so now they won't return my emails. The department that does registration does not do it correctly. They told me I was registered when I wasn't and then they told me I dropped my class, but they never withdrew me out of it so it made it seem as if I just failed the class all together. I would definitely not recommend this school. No matter if it's free because of your union or if you pay. Save yourself the time and student loan debt and go somewhere else where the employees actually do their jobs correctly and care about their current and future students.
