Graduation Rate

Loading...
18%
BELOW AVERAGE

Muskegon Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

18% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Muskegon 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 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 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.

Came to enjoy 'The Taming of the Shrew' at the Overbrook Theater... I loved it! The first time I've ever seen it.. The actors were amazing, being that there was so much dialogue, due to it being Shakespeare... honestly, not a bad in the house either. One thing I would like to suggest for snacks at intermission is something that doesn't have sugar. They had water and candy bars. My husband cannot have sugar. Chips or nuts would have been perfect.
