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 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 institutions.

I just moved here. I am 50 trying to continue my education and have already completed a semester in east Tenn. Talk about rude and NO help. I been on the phone with 3 different people for 2 days trying to figure out what I needed only to come to the conclusion (well at least I’m thinking so) that I need to first and I quote “You NEED to figure out how to get your transcripts to us WE don’t do that here” and that I needed to retake the placement test. Really ? Oh ya.. “You can’t talk to a advisor untill you are admitted to the school” I’m exhausted JUST trying to go back to school and get an education!!! Are there any nice people left in the world today??? Is there a thing called being polite and being helpful anymore? Have we forgotten politeness and manners? It’s so terribly depressing when you see or hear people being rude for no reason. Politeness is ageless and well as timeless. In my books, as in my children I taught it should always be practiced. LEAD BY EXAMPLE ! Just always remember, Everyone needs help, at some point in their life. And just a side note: if I had not been trying I would not have been on the phone for 2 days with 3 different people.

No real ways to invest in this college. I've been going here for two years and I can't wait for the day I get to transfer out.

These idiots made me lose a semester and a scholarship. So I did everything they told me to do which was add Nashville State under my FASFA, send my high school and college transcripts(which they claimed they didn't have), and send my identification. When I started registering for my classes, my classes dropped because of my Tennessee Promise not making it through. So I thank them because thanks to these clowns, I might lose my scholarship and my spring semester. I recommend NO ONE coming to this clown show.

Very good school! Nice staff and teachers! But if you register with a teacher that you like, well don’t be surprised if they change it when the class starts. They always change the teacher after registering!
