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 schools.

Doesn't even deserve one star....do not waste your money. The dorms are gross and disgusting, the food is awful, and YES the campus is NOT safe at all. What a waste of a year and money. The financial aid people are rude and I mean rude and dumb. Not to mention they hold your money for a month and a half after they have received the disbursement. Very shady....in the four years my oldest daughter went to BGSU we never had any issue with college, financial aid, or anything. Trust me, don't waste your money you will regret it.

Hi, I am an law enforcement and this school is extremely UNSAFE! This college doesn’t deserve any stars guys. My sister just attended this college in 2019. First year.She was only going to stay one year. Her last week of school was this week and she got jumped. Yes, jumped!!! Police involved and everything. No, shes not a fighter nor was she involved in anything. Her friends got into a fight and She was just standing there trying to stop it got hit from behind and next thing she knows she was getting kicked in the face and all over by 15-30 different girls and boys. But, when I say jumped you’re probably thinking 4-5 people. No. It turns out it was literally 25-30 kids from Hawken school, exaggeration. All of them are being arrested as I type. Our family is from Shaker Heights. If you don’t know that is a suburbs in Cleveland. She was just standing there with friends and they hit her from behind. This school needs to be shut down. They recruit kids from bad areas and it’s just common sense. Half of a school with kids that are from the hood is dangerous. The crazy thing is, I’m sure this isn’t the first time something happen like this. This happen to my sister and I will make sure this school goes down.

This College does not even deserve 1 star. This is got to be the laziest dumbest college ever. My son has registered 3 different times an it's been screwed up everytime they are always saying something is messed up. They wont even help. But yet still try to charge you when you haven't even started. Cant start because they screw up everything. Before you even get started. They dont know how to do their job what so ever. It should be closed down. This will be reported this time.

This school is the best I have ever been to. I am currently in the Geoenvironmental sciences program and I can say that this is the best program for geology. Dr. Mike and Kim Caudill are absolutely exceptional professors, that are also there for you if you need help and also very knowledgable.

At approximately 2:45pm on October 5, 2018 there was a Hocking College car traveling on 71 south. These people decided to drive in the fast lane going .5 mph faster than the traffic in the right lane. My only suggestion is for Hocking College to teach college level drivers education. Although this has nothing to do with anything; the occupants of said vehicle looked like a bunch of beatniks.
