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 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 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.

Cancelled my motorcycle safety course less the 24 hours before it was supposed to start. If you're looking for a motorcycle safety course, go elsewhere.

Overall Rating:

Worst place on the planet to receive an education. JCC makes college the worst they can in every way possible. If you visit the campus you can look around and see that nobody wants to be there at all because it is so bad.

Overall Rating:

This is the worst place on the face of the planet to learn anything. Being on campus is depressing. Nobody wants to be there at all. Half the students don’t care and the overall experience could not be any worse.

Just finished a new student visit, and everyone was very helpful. So glad our son will start his college career at JCC!

I don’t recommend JCC specially the Cosmetology department!Director of cosmetology Jennifer Wells, is not build for any type of supervisory position. She is unable to handle constructive criticism, walks out of meetings when questioned by students (while students are speaking to her). Very unprofessional. She bends the rules for her favorite students (which happen to be Caucasian by the way). She does not enforce the policies across the board equally for all students. She’s quick to micro manage colored students hours to drop you from the program, but if you’re Caucasian you’re in luck. One particular student barely attended and would always have “medical issues” yet she was allowed to move to every semester with no problems nor repercussions without repeating. The student would always brag “I’m not gonna get dropped” even before staff and Jennifer would have their “meeting” regarding her. Others, get dropped, and have to walk on eggshells. Don’t complain to the dean nor president because it will get swept under the rug.This issue of non equality has caused many students to give up, has affected many of our self esteem, has made us feel unintelligent and the list goes on.Instructors are AMAZING. If it weren’t for them I would have given up, as well as other students. It’s not their fault the department is a scam. They do their job to the best of their ability and honestly they deserve better. It is a revolving door for staff, they’re often resigning. Overall I loved every single one of them, regardless they are passionate about their careers. Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Avery, Mrs. Evans made a huge impact in my life and I will forever be grateful for them.
