Graduation Rate

Loading...

BELOW AVERAGE

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

26% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Mississippi Gulf Coast 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 a huge number of students. This index 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.

THE WORST CLINIC EVER. I went there because I was having problems going to the bathroom. They told me it sounded like I was pregnant and they took my pee and ONLY tested it for pregnancy. NO OTHER TEST. sent me home w laxatives. Turns out I actually had a severe UTI. I'm going to that clinic and cussing out every undertrained person there. It's so disappointing. I'm so disappointed
