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 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.

I dont go to school here, but im trying to get to level 6 in Google Maps for some reason. I believe if you get to level 10 you get to meet Val Kilmer and the guy who played "Goose" in the movie Top Gun.Also, fun fact: This school, I believe, is the real world school that the tv sitcom "Community" was based on. Don't believe me? Google where Chevy Chase went to Community college in the early 00s. A: Inner Hills Community College.Fun fact 2: Their sports team is named after Chevy Chase. LETS GO THE FIGHTING CHEVIES!Fun fact 3: Chevy Chase was named after Chevy Chase Maryland. Chevy Chase Maryland was named after some guy who got drunk and changed his name to Chevy Chase.

I have been attending this college for two years now, I love it! They have a great support system for students and the instructors here are truly amazing. The class number is always small and I like that because it allows for your professor to get to know each and every one of us as students.

I had a question for the bookstore so I call. I was put on hold for about five minutes which is fine I understand if you're busy. I believe I spoke with the Store Manager. I asked her a few questions, and she was extremely dismissive very rude, and ended up hanging up on me. She made me feel like an idiot for not knowing the answers to genuine questions that I had. I would recommend to InverHills to give your Bookstore Manager some customer service lessons they're very needed!

I am an upcoming PSEO student applying to Inver Hills Community College. I turned in my application well before the deadline and I have not heard anything back as to whether I have been accepted, denied, or to help organize my schedule as I will not be in town for an orientation date. It is near impossible to get ahold of anybody that can help me and nobody responds to my messages or emails. I have not even started classes and I am having to pull teeth to get anywhere. I am beyond frustrated.
