Graduation Rate

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 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. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Yet again a so called art exhibit promoting animal abuse! The guggenheim museum recently thought it was appropriate to show similar work yet through public outrage they realized that they were in error! In a civilized society there is no room for such images - Further the artist states that they neither condone nor support these egregious acts of so called sport- How can anyone sit on the fence in such an issue? The fact that a place of higher learning (MCCC) thinks this is acceptable demonstrates their moral value! The fact that this (so called) artist thinks these shock value images are art, shows not only are they morally and ethically void, but they lack any talent!

terrible school. Ive been coming to this school on and off for over 10 years (I move around a lot because of jobs) and THE ONLY reason I come back is because its the closest school to me, so its convenient. besides that, this school is an absolute JOKE. The teachers for the most part are horrible!!!! Ive never attended a college where I have failed my classes so many times due to the lack of actual teaching! The teachers don't care about the students, all they care about is their paycheck clearing, and being able to leave an hour early so they can make their dinner plans. and please don't get me started on financial aid. I have submitted documents that they "needed" to award my financial aid over 2 1/2 months ago, and STILL no word on anything, I had to drop all of my classes this semester because they did not follow through on any of the items they needed (which I sent them multiple times.) All around this school is just lazy, they don't care about their students, don't know how to teach, and overall pitiful. I cannot wait to move again and be able to go to a REAL college, where they have professionals working and actually know what they're doing! and oh yeah, better teachers too!
