Graduation Rate

Loading...
93%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Fountainhead College of Technology graduation rate is above the national average.

93% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Fountainhead College of Technology 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 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 educational institutions.

Empty promises, bullcrap placement, and educatators that all have auctual degrees from reputable schools that I don't teach anything and everything is open book. Pretty much "come hang out, give us money and you have a worthless degree"

Worst school ever. Nothing transfers. Be prepared to start all over if you choose an advanced degree.

I have the pleasure of working with the best instructors and staff. We all really care about changing the lives of our students. Instructors who have worked at other colleges tell me we have the best hands-on lab environments. If you want to learn new technologies, Fountainhead College of Technology is the best place to go.

Let me start off by saying that I initially decided to go to ITT-Technical Institute. I cannot explain to you enough or give you enough warning about that school. If you are a Veteran and using you're 9/11 GI Bill then you know that you can go just about anywhere you want to for your education benefits. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT GO TO ITT-TECHNICAL INSTITUTE! They robbed me of almost a years worth of my education benefits. I mean they quite literally stole from me. I started going there and was very excited to get to go to school and learn in a field that excited me. Now let me preface that by saying if you are just looking for the piece of paper saying that you have a degree and you don't care about actually learning anything, then by all means ITT-Tech is 100% the school for you. It is very easy to make it through that school because all they really care about is collecting money and running students through as fast as they can. Now let me say this. If you are looking for a school that will challenge you and make you think? Fountain Head is for you! If you want a school that gets you hands-on with all of the equipment you will be working with in the field of your choosing. Fountain Head is for you! If you want a school where the instructors care about you and how much you get from the school to prepare you as much as possible for your career. Fountain Head is for you!Let me give you one example of the kind of commitment you can, should and will receive from this school. I have gone here now for a little over 2 years. I never had the need or desire to work while I was going to school. I had some issues come up where I needed to get to work as fast as possible. So I went to the career services center at the school and spoke with them and explained my situation and told them that I need a job and I need to start like yesterday. She sat with me for almost 2 hours and we hammered out a wonderful resume. She immediately emailed it out to all of her contacts that she had who were possibly looking to hire students. I left for class and during the second break I had 2 emails and 1 missed call from different employers. Now mind you all of these contacts that she sent my information out to were people and companies who were hiring in the field I am studying. I called the place back and I had an interview set up for that Wednesday. As it was Monday I did not have a long time to prepare for it. She set me an appointment for the following day to come back in and she coached me for about 1/2 hour to make the interview easier. I went to the interview that Friday and was told that I had a job on Monday. From the time I told the school I needed to get to work and the day that I got my first paycheck was like 14 days. This is just one example of what you should expect coming to this school and I promise that if you decide to come here and you are willing to put in the time, energy and effort to make yourself a success, you will not regret it. It will not be easy but you can do it and this school can and will help you do it.

My time at Fountainhead College of Technology was an amazing experiance for me. I was injured in Iraq and was looking for a new career field. The instructors took the time to help me throught the process, and the admin staff were great as well. The Pres and VP helped me out tremendously. Being a smaller school, you really get that personal touch. I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in thier programs.
