Graduation Rate

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 consideration 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 picture. 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.

Overall Rating:

The utter disregard and unprofessional approach of the Ridgeland campus of Holmes Comunity Collage is nothing short of repulsive. I'm in the process of trying to completely withdraw for this school and ovbiously they're too concerned with getting my collage tuition, that my parents worked their asses off to save for me, for Mrs. Judy Hemphill (the Adminissions Representitive) to answer my email regarding the process that I need to go through to completely withdraw myself from this mediocre school. There is an appalling disregard for the situations of students, let alone the "help" they want to falsely advertise that they provide. Don't bother wasting your time trying to get in contact with anyone after you have enrolled, you'll rarely get a response. This school may look nice on the outside, and my put on the front of being a fantastic collage, but I assure you that it is nothing short of a sorry excuse of a middle school that's trying to pass itself off as an Comunity College. Do not waste your time applying, and don't lose your hard earned money on this pathetic excuse for a school.

Very unprofessional! I called to get more information about the Associate's Degree in Business and the woman on the phone treated me like I wasn't nothing and told me if I wanted to know more about any program I need to go online and read about it myself who does that I will never call or ever think about going to this school again.

Overall Rating:

This school well the Goodman campus at least is a JOKE! Attempting to deal with the unprofessional staff is very time consuming and frustrating. One can only assume some of the women in the admissions and financial aid office are hardly qualified nor do they appreciate their jobs, but that is merely an opinion of mine. The staff does not have a sense of urgency they complete things at their leisure. So if you have a time sensitive matters this is it not the school to attend. Every time I call to speak to someone I get rude individuals. Avoid this school attend JSU instead. I wish I would have submitted my information to JSU instead I would have completed 2 semesters by now.
