Loading...

BELOW AVERAGE

Holyoke Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

19% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Holyoke 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 a huge 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

Wonderful college, great for people with full time jobs, family responsibilities, learning disabilities, academic struggles! And not just for that but for anybody who doesn't have a lot of money and wants good education for low cost! Wonderful STEM program! Majoring in Computer Information Systems. Public colleges impact their community for the better, unlike elitist Ivy league colleges that produce most of our politicians and corporate sell outs.
