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 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 institutions.

ITHZA MORENO Shut up and get a life and a degree!!!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Infrastructure is nice, but sometimes the people working there make the campus experience awful.Some students after graduation became part of the staff. Stay away from Financial Aid department. But if you like to inflict stress on yourself, Go for itThere are a few academic counselors that know their stuff, the rest are just bench warmers, some of them are dinosaurs who been there for a decade or even moreThere is a crai-crai dude on the library that looks like the music school teacher from the Simpsons TV show, stay away from him, don't ask him for nothingIt is sad to see taxpayer $$$$$$$$$ (Bonds) used for a parking garage that accommodate faculty and administration staff instead of the student body. Before the covered parking was built it was playing " musical chairs" with your car driving around and aroundI suggest to get your basic courses here and plan to take classes on Main, Coleman, West loop, North east, and Spring Branch. You will find the specialized classes there.I have mixed feelings for this location, when it was good, it was good, but when it was bad it was BADI hope this review is helpful to you and did not put you to sleep.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
So far is good , but the parking sucks and I don't why they built a garage park far away.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
