Graduation Rate


Nassau Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

20% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Nassau 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 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Nassau Community College

Overall Rating:

Good school to get started and then transfer later. The price is great if you're a resident and there is plenty of parking. There are plenty of clubs to join. The staff may vary, some professors are very kind and caring and other are just there to be there so I highly suggest using ratemyprofessor in order to pick your teachers and classes. Experiences will defiantly vary based on a lot of things like your degree, professors, time of classes, and the classes themselves. When I went here for my first degree it was fun and enjoyable. I decided to pursue a second degree and it was not as fun as my first time around. There's a lot of places to hangout when in between classes. Food options can vary, in the past 3 years there have been different options but one thing has stayed the same and that is the prices, they are high for what you are getting.

Graduated last year with my AA, I'm now in QC getting my BA. Great school, but you must take control of your classes. Respect the professors they will respect you and help if need be. I saved a ton of money going here and if they have a 4 year program I would have stayed.

Being 28 and this being the first school I’ve attended in almost ten years, my experience hasn’t been terrible. However, there are some things that concern me — like the number of incidents that happen on campus. Also, some of the professors really need to retire and I cannot comprehend why they’re still allowed to teach. Other than that, bathrooms I’ve been in are usually clean (there have been some of the same toilets that have been broken down for the 4 semesters I’ve been there 🙄) and staff is friendly.

Overall Rating:

Administratively speaking NCC is horrible. The admin employees are like dealing with the likes of the DMV. They are either state or county workers and most of them are clueless. They move when and If they want to. This applies to the directors all the way down to clerks. These people would survive about 5 minutes in the real corporate world. On an positive note, the full time professors at Nassau seem to be very good. However, they hire a lot of adjunct teachers and most are awful. So if you decide to go to this college do check the professor reviews on line. The Campus itself is getting really run down A lot of the facilities are just old and dirty. The bathrooms are usually filthy no matter where you go on campus. They probably don't have the money to put into maintenance as these people are over paid with tremendous salaries and benefits. So really Nassau is a mixed bag of tricks.

This school is horrible! I’m reading other reviews saying the school is great and that bathrooms are always clean and I’m honestly so shocked! For starters the bathrooms are horrible and in majority of them there are stalls that have been unusable asince the day I started in 2015 and have plastic covering them. Most of the professors I’ve experienced need to retire as they seem burnt out and unwilling to engage a classroom. Now that’s not all I’ve experienced 3 professors out of 20 + that are amazing. On top of all the other nonsense at NCC my friend and I were sexually assaulted on campus in the B building and the school covered it up. The incident was caught on camera and the school purposefully deleted the footage and even went further by moving the benches were the incident took place out of camera view. When I questioned the school about it I was told they were more interested in the perpetrators “redeemable qualities.” I’ve also experienced a math professor who was very bias against females and she deleted work I completed in the online portal so she could drop my grade. I have maintained a 3.5 and now have a 3.8 GPA because I take my classes very serious by continuing to teach myself the material further than the professors attempt. I regret attending this college. I have so many bad memories and letdowns from this college. I give them a ZERO.
