ABOVE AVERAGE

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 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 educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

This school is a waste of time and a waste of money i wouldn't recommend any one to go to this school. Very unprofessional and are all over the place.

Overall Rating:

I give it a one star because I did meet some great people. Durning my time there I took a phlebotomist class. Needless to say they did not inform me that that was the last class they were doing and I could have had on sight training with local hospitals or lab organizations within 3 weeks. Instead of 9 months. I blew 10,000 for nothing. If your considering to go here I recommend the following, do not listen to the recruiters , do your own research on the job your interested in and above all else highly consider a better route like Gannon or mercyhurst where credits received will be useable else where.

I don’t think it would be possible to have received a better education with more personalized one-on-one time. The teachers were all very knowledgeable about my chosen career field, and also very passionate about teaching as well. I truly believe that the tuition is worth every penny as the possibilities are limitless. The only reason I am not giving GLIT five stars is because admissions and financial aid didn’t seem to know what they were doing very much. Otherwise, it’s definitely life changing education.
