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 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 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 institutions.

They are extremely money hungry and bill you for everything. There a few nice people like my coach and the cafeteria staff is so nice. But the teachers...except for a few, are extremely mean and petty. They also make things 10x for difficult for you and they are extremely rude. And don’t even get me started on the lack of understanding when it comes to being a very sick child and you have to miss different days out of the school year due to illness or surgeries, nope, the teachers will say don’t worry about it I’ll handle it then you will get slapped with a VERY expensive fee for absentees. They also don’t tend to notify you on anything until way later on and the teachers hardly ever teach. I had a teacher (who is also my advisor) sign me up for two classes at the same time and said that it will be fine and that I can go to the first class for half the semester and then her’s for the rest. I agreed and promised i would make up everything I have missed in her class and have everything done. She then turned around a few months later and got very petty with me and acted like I just chose to not come to her class and made things way more difficult for me than some of he other students. She was also very picky about the work you did and gave me hell all semester. But then when I turned in all my work, she was shocked and was like wow you actually did a hole lot of stuff. But then decided to not give me my scholarship and then not tell me. I just really don’t recommend this school y’all. Don’t let anyone tell you that you should go to a community college first so “you can get the feel of what a real college is like” cus you will be better off going to and actual “real” college.

Trash school. A bunch of sorry 'professors' and poorly trained staff. I assume that anyone who works at JCJC, especially in the financial aid office, attended this junior college. They are rude, unprofessional, greedy and liars. (Or maybe they're just stupid). Signed up for the online courses to get two credits to finish my bachelor's degree from another University and they denied all of my financial aid (which I had received just fine every year at my University), we're extremely unhelpful when I was attempting to set up my classes and log in (literally everyone I spoke to had 'no idea' and transferred me till they hung up) and when I withdrew not even halfway through the semester because I was so fed up with my arrogant junior college teachers and the lack of any help in financial aid and online courses I received a full bill from this school WITH fees tacked on for withdrawal. No wonder they offer all the petal graduates such great scholarships, they take them away and deny financial aid as soon as they get there. I have made sure to tell anyone I know whose looking to get a few credits at Jones to AVOID them at all cost and any high schooler whose looking into them to stay the hell away.

I have started attending here in Fall of 2017 and they campus is attractive and walks are not that bad. The male dorms could really use some work an renovations but other then that classes are good and teachers are even better. I recommend this place as a great transition into a senior college.

Overall Rating:

Eh. I am honestly glad I do not take face-to-face courses here because the way the online instructors communicate with you is already rude. When asking a simple question, I got talked to like I was completely beneath the teacher and completely dumb as hell. I am a student that likes to make sure I am doing everything correctly and turning in my work the correct way. I emailed my teacher with the utmost respect and acknowledged the fact that the answer to my questions was most likely already answered and just wanted to be sure. My response from the teacher (Public Speaking, SPT 1113, W01) was very RUDE, and I feel as if he was attacking me for asking a simple question. Luckily, I was raised a lot better than he most likely was and gave him a "Thank you for answering. I hope you have great day." I am VERY thankful I go to Miss. State and just have to take some classes online to catch back up since I've changed my major twice.
