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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Lakes Region Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

This school has some nasty staff. The registrar, business office, secretaries, ect.. are so rude and talk down to students. Whenever I call, I know Im going to be treated poorly. As one other reviewer stated, the teachers & counselors hold the place together, and if it weren't for them, I'd be far gone. I honestly don't know who makes the decision in the winter time to shut down school depending on weather, but I find even when all the other schools in the area are shut down, this school will stay open and expect students to travel (lots of students travel from at least an hour away) regardless.

Overall Rating:

The school has updated facilities and does offer housing. Prices are comparable to other colleges. And as it is a community college it's similar in that it has housing like NHTI. The campus is small compared to NHTI, and no offered sports .

Great instructors

Overall Rating:

I gave the school two stars solely because of the registrars, financial aid and business office. They have miserable people working in there and are far from happy to help you. I get anxiety anytime I have to go in there. The school should really look into giving these people an attitude adjustment. they are rude and talk down to you. The teachers are the glue that holds the place together. With out them I would transfer and pay more money for a school with a friendly staff. The counselors are great but that's about all that's great as far as people who are supposed to help you.
