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 an extensive number of students. This indicator 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 educational institutions.

JSCC is what you make of it, really. Cheap tuition and it was very close to home for me. Students and professors vary. It's also crazy how limited the places to eat are, despite how long the campus has been around. Not going to point fingers, but I think some professors there are still learning, themselves and don't know how to break down the material for students. Which basically makes you your own teacher, while they're just there for the paycheck.You have to be motivated and know the major is right for you, or else you won't last too long.

The nursing program has become a joke. Literally if you talk to other surrounding schools about this program they laugh and say it’s ridiculous. They use a method of teaching called “reverse teaching” where they give the students hours upon hours of material and expect them to learn it ALL themselves. They give SO much material it’s impossible to cover it all and they won’t even tell you which parts are the most important. They hate giving any notes to help, they will only upload the PowerPoints once (if at all) and most of the time they’re messed up and they won’t fix it so the students just don’t get the information at all. When you come to class it’s basically just so they can answer any questions you might have but they get angry and nasty if you ask questions so there’s no point. They have you sit in class all day doing things like teaching the other students how to make origami as an example of “hands on/visual learning” but they don’t actually teach anything relevant to nursing in the actual classroom. The fall 2018 first semester students started out with about 80 students. Only about 23 made it to the second semester. Of the class in semester before that there are even less left. If you go upstairs and look at the photos of the graduating classes you’ll see that the classes get smaller and smaller because the program is getting worse and worse. The class can have a 74 average for a grade but because 2 or 3 students have an A they use that to justify why their methods are “successful” when the rest of the class is holding on by the skin of their teeth. They try to fudge their numbers by saying that 100% of their students pass their nursing exams but out of a class of 80 students they’ll be lucky to have 10 students left to graduate and even take the exam and the end at the rate this school is going. They like to conveniently leave that out. I HIGHLY recommend looking at other schools that don’t lie and don’t use reverse teaching and then try to blame the students for why it’s not working. They even had to INVITE students to come back or to join the program because it’s gotten so bad that not enough people are signing up but in the end all they want is your money so they can pay for their new buildings and equipment. They do not care about your education. Students beware!

Beginning my educational journey here for the second time May 29th and I've got to say I'm extremely excited. I've heard nothing but good things and the staff has really helped to make the process possible, as well as answering questions that no one else seemed to know or care to take the time to help me with. I look forward to spending the next 2-3 years here while furthering my education. Several friends have also attended school here and have had nothing but positive comments about their experiences. I can't wait to begin my education here in a few days and feel confident they will help me achieve my dreams. 🙂
