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 indicator 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 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.

I was a first year student at the harley schoo and at the time i was a student the leadership was in definite need of some assistance. The teachers Mike and Dale are Awesome they are great at what they do. Since my time at the Harley program it has since changed hands and is now in the hands of those who truly care about the students like the rest of the campus. If you were to have asked me last year i wouldnt have said this but Go FSCC!

I'm in my second year of College in the Harley Program and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Only reason I came back is because the dealership wanted me to graduate. The instructors are great, but there is so much other crap that you have to put up with that doesn't make it worth it. The director doesn't know anything Harley-Davidson, and doesn't help you like he is supposed to. I was enrolled for a class that I didn't need and ended up spending over 500 dollars between the book and gas to get to class. I have been promised many things and have found out through my time being here that I will not be able to do these things. Most us second year students are fed up with the college. Long story short just spend the extra 15 grand to go to MMI and be done in a year. I can't talk about any other programs for I am not in them.

Overall Rating:

Great school. I enjoyed my time there a great deal. Every instructor was very helpful and respected students. It is very easy to get time one-on-one with them which I've learned isn't necessarily so elsewhere. They also offer free tutoring for every class(Mr. Dobbins is the best in the business). The advising office helped me out on multiple occasions and I was even able to work part-time for the college.I met a lot of great students, faculty, and staff while being there and was sad I had to move on. As with most things in life however, you will have to put out some effort to find success. I would strongly recommend this school to everyone!
