Graduation Rate

Loading...
11%
BELOW AVERAGE

Jackson College graduation rate is below the national average.

11% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Jackson 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 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 educational institutions.

Echocardiography program is a DIY program....don't waste your money. Find a 2 year program where you are actually taught by instructors, rather than being told to read 5 or 6 books and then "let the instructor know if you have any questions."

Money hungry and a waste of time.

The Jackson College bookstore has very nice and helpful staffing their. The bookstore has a couple people on the floor to help students locate books they need for the coming semester. They usually have at least two cash registrars going and even three when the store is very busy. The store allows students to use their financial aid to purchase their needed items there. I will say be careful renting books because late fees will cost you much money for not returning or converting to purchase on time.

Good School. Great start. Earned my Associates before transfering to EMU. Great for adults who want to go back. Price went up qhuite a bit though. Still cheapest around.Last week had to use the library which isnt usually a problem. I have an associates from JC and I am a Jackson County Tax Payer. I needed a simple admin code to download a required browser used by thousands of schools to take a quiz for EMU. IT wouldnt even come out of their office and kept sending an 18 year old kid to laugh at me. I was treated very disrespectfully and flunked my quiz. Sorry you lose a star.
