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 index 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 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.

I graduated from FLCC May 2019. I would have to say that the experience was amazing with great teachers and staff that really care about the students success. I never felt like I couldn't succeed in my academic work and the school has every resource you could need to enhance a students success. My only complaint is that in the student veterans department I was never properly briefed on my benefits as a student veteran and unfortunately missed out on my FASFA for both of my academic years. This was just beyond frustrating and I feel that future student veterans should receive that brief that I never received as the FASFA funds would deliver much financial relief. Other than that one complaint I think FLCC is a great institution for a young person to propel themselves into the future.

Great staff, great faculty, and a great value proposition for college. Community colleges are too often dismissed as a viable option for high school seniors. The reality is that community colleges are one of the best opportunities for incoming freshmen - they typically have a staff that can spend time with students, a price tag that is ultra-affordable, and a great place to spend the first two years of college. Finger Lakes is no exception to this, and it has the benefit of being nestled in the heart of the picturesque Finger Lakes region.
