Graduation Rate

Loading...
15%
BELOW AVERAGE

Metropolitan Community College-Kansas City graduation rate is below the national average.

15% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Metropolitan Community College-Kansas City 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 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 institutions.

For your kid's sake, do not send them to this school. I get the appeal of a cheaper community to achieve an associates degree and a bridge to a 4 year institution, but this is not the school for that. Their staff will make graduation and transfer as difficult as possible. If you feel you have to go there, record everything they say. I would say, get everything in email, but you can send dozens of emails to their advisers and they will not respond. At my time there I had an adviser refuse to change my degree, then give me the incorrect courses for that degree, had an adviser tell me to drop several courses because I didn't need it for then degree, then not let me re-enroll in those courses when it turned out I did, was told a Chemistry course transferred to complete my degree both before and after the transfer, then after a misleading email stating "Congratulations you met the requirements to walk at graduation!" and several phone calls telling me my degree was in the mail, was told it didn't transfer and I couldn't graduate. These are only a few issues that occurred with me, and I had several friends and family members experience the same sort of problem. I don't want the same treatment I went through to occur to future students. Please take your education to a place that cares instead.

This college is runs by groups of Moran and crocks thefts. Favoritisms in student is a undercover issue ( not to mean for the really hard working student) students whom only show up twice at the entire maths semester course will passes and get an A ) what you looks and how deep is your pockets that’s how they decide who is get an A. Professor will make you punches the $167 dollars of textbooks, without use it though the whole semester. homework are now online everything else are online. Academic Adviser are jokes, asking them the transfer questions she rolls her eyes on you. Better to advise myself. My recommendation is to anyone who like to play dirty (money) and don’t really want to learned, please enroll to this college.

It was probably the biggest SHAMS in my life at 40 years old! I was one of the top 5 of my class in HVAC and they were supposed to have job placement after graduating. When the job fair came along there was only 2 companies that showed up! And when I went to apply for any jobs that I went to study for, most only wanted to pay $10-12 an hour tops! After spending $1000's it did me no good! The instructors were great! They could have gave more hands on training, but it really did me no good at all! I wouldn't recommend it!!! IT'S A SCAM!!!!!

Since enrolling it has been a poor experience. Each person you talk to speaks to you as if you are bothering them or they are doing you a favor by speaking to you. They are not helpful, they do not keep you updated, and they are not very interested in whether or not you even attend their school.When I first went in I was advised I had already sent over my transcripts. I was advised that before anyone would speak to me I would need to complete the placement exams, but since I had already completed a math course that was higher than required for them, I would not need to take the math portion only the reading and writing. I took these two portions and came back.After a while a gentleman came out and invited me to his office where he told me I would still have to take the math portion because I was going into a health field and they required that whether I passed it or not to move forward. He also laid out which classes would be required as prerequisites for the nursing program and that they encouraged applying to multiple programs because I might not get in. He was very matter of fact and seemed disinterested in whether or not I moved forward.I enrolled online and went to look at my financial aid so I could pay for the classes and there was none available. I contacted the school and was told that they now required me to give transcripts for two cosmetology schools I attended in 1995 which are both no longer in existence. I had to then call the Kansas Registrar to find out that there were no records for these types of schools at the time unless you took the board exams, which I did not, and so there were no records available.While attempting to do this I was told I would need to contact the representative in charge of my campus, Maureen Kelly. I attempted multiple times to call and she never returns calls. I finally got her to return an email and was told to get a letter stating this. I can't get her to return my calls to tell me whether or not she has received the letter.Save your time and money and attend a University or JCCC where they at least pretend to be excited that you chose to attend their school.
