Graduation Rate

Loading...
13%
BELOW AVERAGE

Forsyth Technical Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

13% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Forsyth Technical 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 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

I'm only here bc I have to be, such an aweful, disorganized, joke of administration that just cannot seem to do more than hang out. If you have the option, go to any other school for anything engineering/ automotive related. The dean of transportation and engineering is an "expert" without a degree or even so much as a single day of experience in a fabrication shop. If you don't mind this be my guest at your own risk. Thankfully the instructors work VERY hard at accommodating majority of their management's short comings. For the price, the time, and location I'd say look elsewhere; however, if you can manage to work around the lack of constructive guidance then more power to ya.

Words cannot accurately describe just how terrible and unorganized this place truly is. Please go to another college. Literally ANY college on the planet would be a step up from this one. The staff are mostly uneducated and have no clue how to help anyone. Literally every time I go to this place to get anything done (records, transcripts, etc.) I always have problems and can't even get what I drove there for accomplished. I can't even sign into my techlink account and drove there to get it reset but HOW convenient... their I.T. department closes at 2pm. Who closes at 2pm at a college? This isn't exactly spring break. I was considering applying for the nursing program here, but I refuse to ever give this "institution" (if you can really call it that) one more penny. They don't care about their students. If they did they would invest some of that tuition money to build a real parking lot instead of charging you $25 PER CAR to park in a gravel lot full of rocks and dirt. Save yourself and run while you can, because Forsyth Tech is the dead end college of broken dreams and sweet nothings.

Forsyth Tech is where I began my college education after returning back to school. I was able to save a lot of money by earning half of my college credits here and then transferring. Forsyth Tech prepared me for my transfer and I met some amazing professors and students along the way. Also, their coffee at Bytes & Beans Cafe is really good! Thank you Forsyth Tech for providing "education for life"

I've had mainly good experiences at Forsyth Tech. I've also had my share of mediocre professors as well, but I can say despite the ones who do lack great teaching skills, they are concerned for their students. Anytime you are doing poorly in the class, you will get a message from your professor. Not only that if you show them you are willing to learn and want to pass the class, they will help you find resources to do so. Forsyth is far better than their counter part Guilford Tech. Parking is also less of a problem too, as the main campus is on Silas Creek Pkwy. ( Urban Campus ) I have an issue with financial aid where I have to do an appeal ( what fun :/ ) Hopefully that will go well, but otherwise one of the better community colleges in the area.

Forsyth Tech is a wonderful Community College. This year is my third semester here and I love it. The instructors are very helpful and they love their job. When I graduated from high school Forsyth Tech was the very last college I had thought about attending. Now that I am here, the only thing I regret is not coming here straight out of high school. The instructors wants their students to succeed inside and outside of the classroom, and suffice to say they will do all they can to make sure you succeed. The networking here is amazing, I am a work-study student and the people are so kind and genuine. If someone would have told me the amazing experience I am experiencing before I came, I would have came. It saves a lot of money, for the student and their parents. I encourage any and everyone who is deciding, or those that are undecided to give Forsyth Tech a chance, and they will adhere all of your needs in being successful.
