Graduation Rate


Galveston College graduation rate is below the national average.

24% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Galveston 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 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 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 educational institutions.

This college is a joke. They only accept a small percentage for their courses and they give favor to those who are reapplying for a course. I met people who have been allegedly trying for over a DECADE to get into some programs here because they want to keep their graduation rates as high as possible, too afraid to let anyone in who might fail or drop out early because they’re not “serious” in order to keep their rates on paper as gilded and advertisable as possible, neglecting potential applicants who are completely ready to go ASAP. Unacceptable for those who are needing to complete all their education ASAP because of accumulating student debt. Expect to try again and again. If you get in on the first try, you must have basically a 4.0 GPA from some Ivy League college or something special about you, I imagine. I got my degree at a much more professional, prestigious and extremely difficult renown private university in Texas with tens of thousands of students, so I expected a little more hands-on “you’re not a number to us” experience at such a small college like the other community colleges I’ve attended. Wrong. They lured me in with false promises and hope and crushed me after moving down here. They lost my transcripts twice, they lied about my courses all being transferred in until a couple months before my interview and then penalized me for appealing when I had my interview because I had to unfortunately raise such hell with the interviewer to get anything done after all the drama I had already gone through to get here. I finally had my courses all accepted and then they passed on me for being a first time applicant and possibly for other backwards reasons. They think they’re hot shots at their little rinky-dink hole in the wall college while there are professionals at bigger colleges doing so much more for their students. It’s a sad joke. Don’t waste your time. I decided to continue my education at a much more prestigious institution after jumping through such backwards hoops for such a lowly college and had no issues getting in except for getting out of Galveston after Harvey and the debt I had to make just moving down here for empty promises and false hope. Would hate to be here any longer than I have. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that they passed on me so I wouldn’t have wasted my life anymore than I have here. Word is their programs don’t put out and many graduates are still looking for work despite promises that they would be employable with their degrees and licenses. Sad, sad, college.

Overall Rating:

The worst most unorganized school I have ever attended, after turning in a form with my written name and address, they still managed to misspell my last name completely, and inputed an address that doesn't even exist. All of the mailed information was "lost" and I had to go up to the desk multiple times to have them correct my name and address, financial aid office is no help. Financial aid workers told me all this useless information, they also told me to complete a fasfa packet, with mine and my parents tax information transcripts attached and gave me 2 business days to have all that information finished and turned in, which was impossible since I have a full time job and work throought their business hours. I ended paying cash and withdrawed from their online physics course , and now after all of that, financial aid has the nerve to tell me they won't reimburse me due to my transferred credit hours.
