Graduation Rate

Loading...
11%
BELOW AVERAGE

Guilford Technical Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

11% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Guilford Technical Community 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 an extensive number of students. This index 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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Guilford Technical Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

staff is very unfriendly, school policies and procedures are backwards. financial aid is split into three disbursements which is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. The staff is not attentive and they are rude. Every time I call, the person answering the phone always has an attitude. They lost 2 copies of my transcripts and I had to go up there in person to make sure they didn’t miss place the third copy. When I was meeting with my advisor, I was sent to 4 different people who were supposed to assist me and none of them had the ability or the knowledge to do so. I have tried to get assistance from Titian Link but I guess I do not fit the demographic because they are very prolonging and hesitant to assist me. I will not be returning in the fall.

Great school! But I’d advise you NOT to take Johnson’s class for English. He has a great personality and all, but he grades just way too hard and you can never make a 100 in his class the highest you can make is a 95 because “there’s always room for improvement.”

I would highly recommend going anywhere else to Pursue ANY nursing degree than at GTCC. It is an unjust grading policy ... and that’s only the tip of the iceberg with what is wrong with this program. Do yourself a favor and research other programs. This may have been the less costly program but it’s not worth your time and money. Most of the first semester you teach yourself. And it’s alot of information to teach yourself. And rules and syllabus change constantly. Run away from this school. Run FAST!

The school itself is ok. I'm in their Aircraft Mechanic A&P program. The campus is at the Greensboro airport. Like I said, the school and program are ok. The material is pushed at a fast rate and if you fall behind from either missing school or are slow at picking up the material you may be in trouble. I understand that there is lots to cover and limited time, so I won't fault the school since its the Federal Government (FAA) that sets the curriculum. My biggest issue, and I'm not the only person with the same complaint, is that there is no discipline. What I mean by that is that some students with the mentality of 10 year old children have no consideration for other students that are trying to do classwork or study. In the computer labs while people are doing class work other students, the inconsiderate ones, are as loud as they can be. Throwing things across the room and tearing up the equipment. This semester, Fall 2018, there were several computers that were unusable due to these "kids" slamming down keyboards or pulling on the cables trying to screw around with their friends. More than one time, these same "kids" would do things like moving the security cameras or knocking on closed doors and running away to classrooms where tests were currently being administered. Overall behavior that other students or faculty should not have to deal with. I wish I could say that these "kids" are disciplined in some fashion, but the faculty often just turn their heads as if they didn't want to deal with the paperwork involved in disciplining students. I personally witnessed an event where a student asked a group of people in the research room to keep it down and he was verbally attacked by one of the individual in that group. In the parking lot after class is dismissed for the day you are likely to be ran over. Basically the behavior expressed by these individuals should not be happening in this setting and they are old enough to know better, but as I have stated they don't. If I was asked if I recommend this institution, I would say that if there was a different place to get the same education, go to the other place. Unfortunately there are limited places to get this particular program. I hope that someone who is capable of correcting the discipline issues at that campus reads this post and can correct such behavior. As for me, I hope that the new school in Charlotte opens up so I can finish my education elsewhere.
