BELOW AVERAGE

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 index doesn’t consider 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 schools.

School beautifully set in the mountains. My first time teaching for the Small Business Center and look forward to coming back. The Small Business Center (SBC) mission is helping local small businesses live the American dream and become more profitable. If you are a local small business run don't walk to the schools SBC and learn about all the resources they have to offer the local community small businesses. Last night I taught Wordpress websites and next time I will be covering Social Media for Businesses including how critical it is to be on local directories beyond Tripadvisor . Following that will be how to get more results in your social media with pictures and video.Look forward to coming back!
