Graduation Rate

Loading...
15%
BELOW AVERAGE

Lake Michigan College graduation rate is below the national average.

15% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Lake Michigan 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 a huge 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 educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Lake Michigan College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Its the cheapest college in the area and you get what you paid for.The staff in the financial aid, business and student advisory are some of the most incompetent people you will ever meet. Time and time again they ask for documents because they lose them every semester. Several times I had to straighten out financial issues after the geniuses had assured me it wouldn't be an issue, then the idiots deny it.The housing director for the dorms is exceedingly callous and cold, if you have a personal issue with your housing or you want to leave early because a job - she wont care. Prepare to have an apathetic housing staff give you the run around, not mean what they say and then deny it if you bring it up, same with all the staff.If I wasnt borderline homeless I would have never come here.Ask any student the competency level of this barely functioning organization and you'll get the same answers.The teachers are decent, every thing else is a big heap of stinking garbage that can care less about you, and their actions reciprocate that.Enter at own risk.

LMC mean last minute college.

Current student! Love the atmosphere as well as the staff! Education is their goal, & it shows!

Overall Rating:

This rating is for only 1 instance and Issue: Help Desk- It seems they don't like answering the phone, and don't return phone calls. LMC should really make the School Domain accessible in WaveLink or Canvas, somewhere only students and staff can find it, but asset least accessible. This would solve many students grief and ease the need off assistance for many MS Office users. What a P.I.T.A.
