Graduation Rate

Loading...
9%
BELOW AVERAGE

Edgecombe Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

9% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Edgecombe 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 an extensive number of students. This index 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.

First time attending this school fall 2017 my experience was good up until I took CIS 110 on Tarboro campus instructor to me was rude showed lack of interest in the problems occurring in the class I am not sure if he is the only instructor on this campus for Intro to computers but I recommend taking with someone else, and please do not take this course in anything less than a 16-week semester to much information at once. I hope I pass this class and have a better experience for the remainder of my time here.

Overall Rating:

A very boring place. When I was in 3rd and 4th grades, I had to sit there and wait for a whole two hours for the two programs for ten minutes. Sorry to the people who care.

Overall Rating:

Don't take an online class through Edgecombe. It was a dreadful experience, the professor was rude and seemed not to care one bit. If you forget to do one assignment you become locked out of every other assignment, including the one you forgot to do, so you are completely out of luck. It really is a terrible system. You then have to contact the instructor to get in unlocked, and if she doesn't respond soon, then you get stuck in a vicious cycle of being locked out. It's super frustrating. Should have dropped it when I had the chance.
