Graduation Rate

Loading...
14%
BELOW AVERAGE

Johnson County Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

14% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Johnson County Community 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 an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration 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 went to school here part time for 4 years and worked here for 8 years. I have taken many course from many professors in a wide range of fields. I spoke with many students and professors. This school is an incredible resource for anyone trying to get some where better. In short, if you work hard, choose your professor's wisley, get involved on campus, and use the resourses offered to you (they are abundant), not only will you succeed but you will have a lot of fun doing it. School here can be really exciting and challenging. It is such an incredible opportunity to have a school like this. There are many people working very hard to bring opportunities to people. I hope that it can continue to grow and offer even more avenues for people to grow and improve.

My experience is based on the fact that I didn't give 100% when I went here. I do seem to remember the staff not being the friendliest. But the price is right and it's one of the best community colleges in the country.

So I'm done with this school. Your staff is incredibly rude. I can't get proper help at the math resource center because apparently I'm cheating by asking for help on a math problem, I can't go work out without your rude staff telling me conflicting reports on if I can actually use it or not and I can NEVER get help in the writing center. I paid a lot of money to go this school and I fund it through taxes. EVEN if I didn't pay to go to this school I still deserve to use your work out room. Either that or your school needs to remove the COMMUNITY part out of your sign. It also doesn't help that your teachers don't seem to care either. They are either to busy or your question is dumb. I will not be attending this school. I also think this school should lose any federal assistance it's getting.

I'm a student at JCCC, and I love it! The professors are all excellent teachers and orators and have a genuine interest in seeing their students succeed. My professors have been great at working with me when I have to miss class. I'm enjoying all my courses immensely, and will definitely be graduating with my Associate's from here!

There are some great staff at Johnson County Community College, and I'm not singling any one person out here. I attended college here over this past year, and to say the least without getting into great detail I struggled outside of the classroom with depression and anxiety. This wasn't a new thing for me. As a Marine Corps Veteran of 12 years I've struggled with this and finding a clear direction in life. I've been receiving treatment for this for well over a year now at the VA. It seems to me that I've been treated differently at this campus as a Veteran, and in some cases I've been singled out in the classroom. This is discouraging to say the least. I don't understand how students are being treated differently, or offered opportunities other than outlined in the class syllabus. I've noticed students being treated differently than others, and favorites being paid more attention to. I'm sure there will be some sort of clever response to this, either apologizing for how I've felt, or somehow putting the blame on me. This is very common from an institution such as this. nothing different than a public school denying any responsibility in a youg girls suicide in Texas, becase she never told a staff member how she was feeling, or that she was being bullied at school. That makes me sick. If you're wondering where I'm going with this, I wanted to kind of paint a picture for what I'm about to tell you. I appealed my classes in the fall semester, and was denied my request. I really tried to express myself in this request, which was so hard for me to do. Being a grown man, Marine Corps Veteran of 12 years, father, and husband that I was failing at taking care of myself mentally, and that I was struggling in all aspects of my life. It takes a lot to put yourself out there, the vulnerability alone can be overwhelming. Not really sure what to do at this point. If I were to take the schools recommendation, it would simply be "just take the classes again" they said. Well I'd like a better prepared response than some form letter. I was treated unfairly here, and there is no denying that. You can't just treat people as castaways, I'm a person too, and all the others that don't quite fit into your so called box. I'm not perfect, and maybe a little damaged, but that doesn't mean that you can just throw me aside accepting the better more qualified student. In closing be considerate, for show compassion, for every student may not fit your made up world mold. Don't be so assuming, and maybe give those less fortunate a chance to make good. Think outside of your pockets, and more with your hearts. I'll cross my fingers this review somehow someway touches someone. I laid it all on the line, and you turned your backs on me. To be honest the way I was treated you shouldn't even get a star...
