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 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.

Business classes were free.

This is a great place to go take college classes and get exercise as well. The staff and teachers were very knowledgeable while I attended and now, being finished with college, I still love to go and walk around the campus for exercise. There is a beautiful pond in the front to walk around as well as lots of walking trails. Lots of pavement so you can take the kids to ride their bikes.

Did my graphic design classes here. Also has one of the best Radio & TV Broadcasting programs in the state. The Small Business Center (inside the Foundation building) is phenomenal at connecting potential and current entrepreneurs with the resources and guidance they need to succeed. I teach classes through the SBC. Great experience as a student AND as an instructor. College is a huge asset to the community.

I have had the opportunity to teach here several times for the Small Business Center and enjoyed the campus, rooms and participants. The Small Business Center is committed to helping small business succeed supported by the state and one of our best resources to help economic development.When you come to Isothermal Community College one of the things that strikes you in the impressive entrance around a small lake. It is one of the most beautiful entrance to a school that I have seen.
