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 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-G-N-O-R-E ignore ignore these leftist profs that slip in their political opinions in lectures. I could care less what leftist bullshit they believe in. I am more interested in getting an education so I can become gainfully employed instead of flipping burgers for overly obese customers! By the way this college succckkks like mad. I transferred elsewhere, actually out of state because Tennessee is a dumber than rocks state!

If I could give ZERO stars I would. This institution claims to support veterans but I would say that is absolutely incorrect. I have been given the run around for 3 months now. I have taken initiative and gone into the school multiple times to be sure that I was all good to register for classes at the start of registration. I was told multiple times that come April 1st I should be able to register. That being said alert after alert popped up on my account and I could not register. Every time I tried to get these problems resolved the staff would either be completely confused and not know what to do or point me to another staff member who also again pointed me to someone else. As you can imagine classes began to fill up very quickly and I almost could not register. After tons of calls and me going to the school multiple times I was able to register. It was as if I were pulling teeth. I had child care arranged (as you can imagine that does get expensive, I have 3 under the age of 6) for my appointments with the school. When I showed up to my appointments new alerts appeared and we were unable to proceed with what we needed to do because no one could fix it and no one knew why. Complete inconvenience and waist of my time and money. I was initially going to use my GI BILL but decided to use my Fasfa instead because I am only taking 4 classes. I only need 4 classes and I decided to take them at NSCC and transfer back to my home institution. I now have a new alert from Finance saying that I need 40 hours to complete my degree (totally incorrect, I need 12) and that I am barred from using my FASFA. It is now very very late to start my GI BILL and use it for the Summer semester. The information they have is totally incorrect and the only thing they could do is tell me to file for an appeal that will take another 2 weeks and then of course if I do get approved to use my financial aid then they will be starting my Fasfa Award very close to the summer semester which is also inconvenient for me as I am relying on my fed aid refund for summer child care so that I can take my classes.I had heard so many good things about this school and how they support military and welcome nontraditional students. I have attended two other colleges and never have dealt with issues like this. The staff always looks confused and seems very nice but very unhelpful. I would say if your looking to go back to school and use this institution you need to apply a year before hand and be ready ready for tons of push back. I am still going to submit my appeal and hope for the best. At this point it is too late to apply to a different school and take Summer classes.

Amazing Community College that places students needs first. The right place to pursue your educational goals. Nashville State got over 80 educational programs offered at their six campuses in the greater Nashville Tennessee area. They are also a military friendly college offering credit for prior learning experience to current service members and veterans.

Overall Rating:

The education quality here is absolutely atrocious beyond anything I can describe. The best way to put it that I know is that you could sleep half way through the semester and still pass. No effort is required. The teachers here are morons to the max. They have very little to none experience in the subject matter they babble about. Anybody that has written positively about this place let's just say I feel very sorry for you. You like easy work and you don't know what quality education is. You are utterly pathetic and frankly lazy. The cost to attend here and especially the books are unbelievably unreasonable. Simply put, it is theft. This institution is run by moronic individuals that have no place in academia. I only ask that this worthless institution worsens so that it can go ahead and lose it's FAKE accreditation and shut down.

I sincerely only hope that this college suffers financially to the cliff of financial disaster. The faculty and staff here are frauds and incompetent beyond anything that you can imagine. The education here is terrifically terrible.You could pass here even if you slept for 90% of the semester. Do me a favor. Stop going or don't apply. When more students do that the college will finally shut down and become an abandoned building with unemployed profs.
