Graduation Rate


Manchester Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

16% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Manchester Community 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator 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 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.

Transferred out of here after one semester. The staff is rude and the students are ruder. Parking situation was awful. Was extremely uncomfortable going to school. So glad I’m out of there

I am currently trying to transfer to this school and I rarely write reviews. The academic advising office is AWFUL! The first time I went into the office, I spoke with a counselor that informed me of a degree path in the field I am interested in, however she had no information on the program and said I have to do the research and figure out if I qualify for this degree path. WHAT? That is her job, not mine. So I go in to speak with another counselor a couple weeks later and I am told about another program because I did my research and I did not qualify for the first program. However, this other degree is not what I want it to be, but it allows me to be accepted into UCONN. Luckily, I did my own research and found out that I didn't qualify for this degree path either. So I would have done 2 years of school in another field for absolutely no reason. So next, I called the advising office to ask if there was another adviser that I could speak with. The office was currently having walk in appointments, so if I came into the office, I would be able to speak with him. I show up, he's not there. Okay, no big deal. I called again to schedule an appointment for Monday, it was Thursday at the time. So on Monday I showed up, he had to leave, so without calling me they rescheduled my appointment with one of the ladies I already spoke with. Even though I specifically asked to speak with him and explained what had happened already. If I would have been given a call and had been asked to reschedule, no big deal. So I asked if he was going to be there the next day for walk ins, the secretary says yes. Now I already don't trust this office. So this brings us to today, I called ahead because this office is incredibly unreliable. The secretary confirms the counselor will be there between 1-4. I show up 15 mins later, he has a meeting to go too. That will take at least an hour. What?! Classes start in less than a month and I may need to change them around again. Most class are already full. I will be lucky to get a class that I actually want to take because this office jerks around their students. I have wasted my time and gas going back and forth because the office staff can't get it together. And the reason I haven't mentioned names is because the counselor that I want to speak with hasn't done anything wrong. It is the office staff that has a HUGE communication issue. I plan to take one semester here because I have to and be done and just transfer to UCONN in the fall. I do not need this aggravation and I certainly do not need to be wasting my time and money on this dysfunctional school.

I attended classes as a part time student who didn't go every semester from the fall of 2011 to the spring of 2017. What can I say about this place...? There were certain classes that I enjoyed and others I didn't, as expected with every school experience. There is support from the school that's in place if you need it. The one time I went to the math center I loathed the help I received from one of my former teachers (at the time she was my teacher).Overall; I overall had an acceptable time learning here. It's a fair start off college and also a good place to take additional courses to better yourself.
