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 schools.

Overall Rating:

Beautiful campus, great academics, even better staff. I would rate 5 stars but they don't have dorms. If they had community housing or dorms it would for sure get 5 stars. Give this place a visit. It also contains the best trucking school in NC and One of the top 5 programs for Sonography.

Overall Rating:

A bunch of rude people who aren't very helpful. And the staff are very rude and aren't very professional. I've only met about a couple people who are actually nice and willing to help me going to school here. Other than that, it's like pulling teeth to get help with anything.And if you do get help, you'd wish you hadn't, because of horrible attitudes. I understand bad days but this takes it to a whole new level.

This college is a good place to start a college but i would not say most people want to stay at JCC for the long run.

I can honestly say that most staff members are nice and are willing to help, but of course there are some that just look like they hate their jobs. I have been a student for a couple of years now and I have seen a lot. I understand that the financial aid department is under stress, but to neglect a student is uncalled for. I have seen some of the rudest staff members.. but I can say most of the instructors that I had, did care and was willing to help me over and beyond.. they cared more about students success than the pay check.
