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 index 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.

I started my second year at EFC this year. I can say with all honesty that I love this school! I love the professors and faculty, my fellow students are all great too. Easy to talk to people here. If you ever need help in a subject you can just visit the Prof. during office hrs and they'll help you. The librarians are great too! The Business Office ladies are amazing, I had a problem with my tuition money and they were happy to help. STEM division is great also. Ms. Phyllis is so kind and helpful, and the STEM Academic Dean is friendly. Oh, and can't forget the janitorial team, they are the best!!! So kind, never grumpy, and always have the place clean. >>I'm sure they appreciate a "hello" or "thank you" from time to time.

I attended this college's criminal justice training center at the age of 22 years old. It has changed my life and helped me grow as a person. Graduating from this program has been my proudest accomplishment. Thank you for the wonderful staff and Director from the Fall 2015 semester.

Overall Rating:

Helpful, safe, clean and affordable. I've never had a problem with anyone here. The teachers are all nice. I'm not sure why there's a lot of stigma with this school out of all the DCCCD colleges. I have friends that have transferred back here because they like this one better. Everyone is eager to help you get to the next step in your career path.
