Graduation Rate

Loading...
35%
BELOW AVERAGE

Five Towns College graduation rate is below the national average.

35% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Five Towns 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 institutions.

An amazing college

This school just wants your Money I had fun because of other students but the education and school itself was pretty bad. Don't get yourself in debt from a school like this. I would say it also has to do with your Major.

Overall Rating:

As an alumni of Five Towns college. I would not recommend this school as they have nothing for me. Such a cheap school. They up the prices of tuition every year while taking away programs and opportunities. As an alumni, other colleges provide support in your career or business venture. This school could care less about their alumni. I simply asked for my transcript as it was needed for a job interview. They are soooooo behind in times that you have to fill out a dumb request form which has to be mailed. I got my bachelors degree at Five Towns and highly regret it. I went back to school for my masters at another college and guess what... they sent my transcript within minutes to my email address. Why does this school suck so much? On another occasion, I went to the career services to discuss with them a business I was starting, and they absolutely did not help with any resources whatsoever. I ended up going to Hoftra University, where my fiance graduated, and they gave me way more support and advice than Five Towns ever will! Bottom line is do not go to this college. Put your time and money into a college that actually cares, or go to a trade school. Five Towns College is the biggest waste of time as far as an education goes and I hope they shut down so they can stop scamming students into thinking they can thrive by attending their school. Since I only have two hands I give this institution two thumbs down. If I could give more, I would. And I will continue to be the biggest advocate in preventing students from attending this school.

Overall Rating:

Great school! Professors know you and will take time to help you. Most of them have experience in that field. You have to do internship and they have good connections to get you one. Career services will help you with your resume and help prepare for an interview. All the classrooms are in one section. Fun activities every week. They offer many opportunities to help you with your tuition.
