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.

Possibly the worst college one can go to. Some of the teachers are by far the best and I made easy and loving friendships with but their not the reason for the low rating. The college is overly expensive, Welcome Center Staff and cafeteria staff are exceptionally rude and uptight. Many of my teachers this semester have actually yelled at me and forced me to leave class just for being a couple min late?? umm excuse me?? do I have to remind you who pays for this class and the reason you have a job?? thats right we the students!!!!! NOT THE COLLEGE BOARD!!!!!

A woman added a class while in my account at the campus to show me how it was done. The class was subsequently deleted. I am being charged for an enrollment fee, which this woman never explained. I have emailed two different people, and spent 30 minutes on hold to speak to someone. This is unethical, and I will no longer be taking my two years of prerequisite courses at HFCC. I would not recommend a college who will not work with students with basic decency.

Terrible place to get an education. If you some how make it past financial aid, then good luck dealing with the "professors" enployed at the school. Also their internet is terrible, I cant even go on google. All this and they charge a $78.00 infastructure fee. Just terrible. You're better off not going to college. It seems to me that the school is just running a scheme and collecting as much money as possible before they get caught. I paid out of my own pocket to fail. Thanks obama. All college students need to boycott everywhere.

I remember Henry Ford Community College in the mid-80s. It was a nice College back then. U of M Dearborn was there at the time also. but they were not together. University of Michigan Dearborn seemed so much nicer than Henry Ford Community College. Now when you look at Henry Ford Community College and how it has expanded, it is very impressive. There is a saying that, 50% of students, who go to community colleges in their hometown usually, do not complete their degrees. So when it was time for my grandson to go to a college and not leave the city, we decided on Henry Ford Community College. One of the many factors that help students with their College adjustment is, having a place to stay nearby. We tried the Union,, the dorm for University of Michigan. The requirements for the rooms gave us the impression, they didn't want Henry Ford students staying there, even though, they've stated otherwise. So, we went to Henry Ford Community themselves asking for guidance and they recommended the River Oaks apartments, on Evergreen Road, north of Ford Road, with a student discount, just a step away from the school. Henry Ford has made it feel as if he's in a dorm. So far this has been a great experience for him and we are really proud. Thank you Henry Ford Community College. You have given a university feel to so many whom otherwise, would not have been able to experience it. Just one more great thing under a great name.

Not about futures, about money! I already have a masters degree. I signed up for a CAD class as a refresher. I did via the phone with a person from registration. I had not attended this school in the past and it had been some years since I attended a community college. The last time I had, it was very affordable...the point of community college, right? Well, the registration person did not tell me the total cost for the class. The next day i received a bill for nearly $1000...FOR ONE CLASS? When did community colleges start costing as much as universities? I called that person immediately and told them I could not afford to take the course and had no idea it would be that much. He dropped me from the class but said i still required to pay for it...just 24 hours after he signed me up for it! Such BS! I refused so a year later, I didn't get the class, but a fight in collections over it. Affecting my ability to purchase a home. Thanks HFCC!
