Graduation Rate

Loading...
14%
BELOW AVERAGE

Middlesex Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

14% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Middlesex 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 institutions.

I spent a wonderful two years here and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to save money and explore college without a huge commitment. There are lots of clubs and activities to get involved! There are ample scholarships and it's an easy transition to most state schools (ie free application, accepts all classes, additional scholarships!)
