Graduation Rate

Loading...
15%
BELOW AVERAGE

Montgomery College graduation rate is below the national average.

15% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Montgomery 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 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 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 educational institutions.

Great school with some truly excellent teachers/mentors.

Don't go to this place. I had this misfortune to have to attend this college for 2 classes. It seems like the administration goes out of their way to not help you. If you need anything from the administration; good luck. There are way better community colleges out there like CCBC or AACC. This place is just horrible. I feel bad for the students that are forced to come here because of cost.

I joined only 01 semester at this college and studied EL3 coz my Placement test was not got very high score 😺All of my Professors were so friendly, easygoing, and always listened and explained things very carefully for me to understand. I still missed one person - Mr. Marlon, I forget which department that he belongs to. My sister got scared when communicate with him, because the way he talked and his face looked so serious, but I'm not scared at all. I sometimes made an appointment with him to get advised and there were 2 or 3 times he smiled with me ha ha

I truly recommend anyone looking to go to a community college, don’t choose this school. You’re left on your own to figure things out in order to graduate. Which I understand they want students to learn to be independent, but isn’t one of the jobs of faculty and staff at a college to help students be in the right path to get a degree? If you need help there, they will send you to one person after another just to get one little thing done. You’re not promised to graduate in two years, the amount of time that they promise students it takes to get an associates degree. I know many people who have started at MC in 2015 from graduating high school and they’re still at MC and it’s 2019. Make sure MC knows you’re a student there, because anytime I go to the registrars office or to anyone and they ask me for my Mnumber they tell me it doesn’t come up. Even though I have an MC ID that clearly shows my m number. I have been trying to figure out the last class I needed in order to get my degree. Not only is the registrar unhelpful but they’re also rude. I switched my degree, and my new degree only required me to take one more class. I followed the outline of my degree and signed up for a class, just to get a degree evaluation in the mail after the class started. To be told that the class I signed up for was the wrong class. Then I had to email Marjorie Davis and tell her I was following the outline. I finally get an email back after the class had already started that I was taking the right class. Not to mention after the two month long class had just ended, I get a letter in the mail stating I took the wrong class and won’t be able to graduate. So as I read that of course I freaked out. I email the lady in the registrars office and get kind of rude reply back saying “If you read the letter carefully , you would see that it's for the spring 2019 graduation application that you submitted.” If you don’t mind never graduating in a timely manner, than by all means go to MC. I really suggest to avoid MC.

I graduated from MC in 1996 and it was terrific then and terrific again. I had wonderful professors that invested time and energy into our learning. I took anthropology courses, art history classes, Spanish language classes, etc. I went on from MC to UMCP and then to Hopkins and Georgetown. I am at MC again studying TESOL. I am grateful for the warmth and dedication of the professors and staff. The students were some of the most down to earth and hard working folks.
