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 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.

It's a poor excuse for a college, i have attended it for a little over two years and have found that it has only a few good professors teaching. The college is focused more on it's Athletic programs and students which comprise roughly 60% of the student body, and it's technology on campus is roughly 3-6 years old.

Such a poor excuse for a school. I was set to graduate a semester early. The registrar had previously told me that the classes I had planned out would count towards my degree. Came time to graduate at the end of my third semester and suddenly I was 9-12 hours short of my degree. They screw you out of your degree with false promises. On top of that, the lady they brought on as head of the theatre department is a royal jerk. I quickly found out why she is no longer on broadway and at the smallest college in Kansas. I wouldn't recommend this pathetic excuse of an "educational institution" to anyone.
