Graduation Rate


Grayson College graduation rate is below the national average.

19% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Grayson 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 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Grayson College

I am biased because I am a Grayson Viking alumni. However, after attending other big name state schools, this is a place where you are a person and not a number. Almost every instructor I had here was willing to help when asked. this is college not grade school so they are not paid to hold your hand, however, they all recognized that you do pay for their time. I will say the level of customer service for the VA has declined ever since Ms. Metcalf left the program. I went back to get some info and had a hard time explaining to the general office just because I was a Vet I did not need to see the VA guy, that what I was after they could assist me with. (I did spend almost 2 years working in their office with the VA portion so I know who to talk to when needed.) Recommendation is that they move the VA office back into the regular counseling office area and not give students or vets a run around.Overall, the instructors here taught me what I needed to know and why it was important, I have rarely seen that in a 4 year university, if at all.

Admissions office, and the business are terrible to work with. They will drop you from a course without even a warning and then make you pay $360 to get back in the course. We have less than twenty four hours to pay them. They can't seem to do their job right. Will be going to a different college next semester.

Overall Rating:

Horrible from the very beginning. There hasn't been one step of the process of getting into college that has been easy with this institution. No employee there ever answers their phone or returns calls. The teachers frequently break rules and don't even follow their own syllabus. Several of the instructors there do not seem like they deserve college degrees. One instructor I had told me "The textbook is correct because several people worked on it together. So that makes it accurate.". I know that is a sad statement, but it is a direct quote. I would never recommend this institution to anyone. You would be better off learning from an elder gorilla.

Just like two other commenters mentioned it appears that the school has a communication problem. I have tried contacting the school multiple times. First through the "contact us" on the website. Second after twenty four hours I called the main line and the woman who answered transfered me to the voice mail of someone in charge of the dental assisting program because I just missed them. Third, after almost twenty hours again I called to talk someone and I was told someone would called me at the end of the day and I even gave them my email. As of now I have received no calls not even a email. So I decided let others know how hard it was to deal with this school by leaving this comment. I will take my money somewhere else, and I would recommend that to others too.
