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 indicator 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.

Overall Rating:

I loved my professors and classes. However bevause of all my other experiences here I would rate a 0 if possible.When I first came here I was required to attend in person on campus orientation. I was forced to sign up for their dual credit program even though I requested several times that I wanted only to finish my AAOT (as I was only a few credits away from finishing). I decided to not sign up for classes that day and went home to change my degree myself.Then it came time to take care of financial aid. It took nearly a month and 4 trips to their offices in person to get things set up. You would think that in 2018 there would be an online process avaliable.So after all this drama I thought I was finally done. Time to sign up for classes.Apparently if I had gone full time I would have outspend my financial aid. Which was totally fine.So I cut my credit hours to 10, because of this i wasn't "fulltime" so even though this was the max amount of credits I could take. Not to mention, this was 3 very difficult classes.This rule is nowehere listed on the online financial aid website for the school. And I even comfirmed with an office member that this would be fine. And it was certainly fine at PCC where I done this several times...However, the financial won't cover school supply and book fees because i was not full time. Even though I confirmed with financial aid staff that it would all be coveredI was not told any of this, and did not receive any emails, any letters, and notifications on my student account or texts or holds on my account. Until. The LAST week of school.So now as a young married couple of students in school who can barely pay for groceries, we are now facing a 350 dollar fee. If I had known about this as soon as it happened I would have immediately taken action.I think the reviews make it clear, but the financial aid here just makes going to school here not worth it. I rather spend extra money at OSU then go through as much trouble as I have faced here.

i came here suspecting a nice community, and for once in my life my assumption was correct. I walked into the courtyard and saw a very nice community of college students. Old or young gay or straight fat or thin there is a strong community here.

Overall Rating:

The lecturers I had were all pretty good. But the admin staff in admissions, financial aide, etc are horrible. No one will return your email, or return it a week later. People give you information that is wrong. If any one from financial aide tells you anything double or triple check what they tell you. If the staff is processing paperwork for your application or financial aide you constantly have to message them to remind them to do their job. I had a very bad experience and would recommend going to school anywhere else.

Well organized campus, staff that care and a well rounded curriculum. Parking seems like it's always available somewhere.
