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.

I don't go here nor do I know anyone who does. We visited for a wrestling tournament. The gym they used was utterly disgusting. Dirty as hell. Garbage was shoved everywhere. There was a baby bottle!!! This is right when they opened. You are going to tell me there is no custodians or even volunteers to clean it up knowing there are visitors coming?? This is not a good impression at all!! They should take more pride in their school

How does a college have a faculty that can't answer any questions pertaining to activities that go on campus. there are 4 kids to a room and marijuana smoke fills the air. You complain to faculty that you were not around anytime that this is found by staff with proof of your where abouts each and everytime. I don't smoke at all. I have a scholarship to go to this school and they kicked me out due to no one coming clean about the marijuana. I don't think I was treated fairly. I just started my journey here and was looking forward to progressing here. Now I have to figure out a new plan. NCC IS NOT A GOOD SCHOOL TO ATTEND IF YOU HAVE BIG DREAMS.

AVOID buying textbooks from their bookstore. They can and they will over charge you. After you check out they send you a confirmation with the price you paid then say prices are subject to change? What! yes that is AFTER you type in all your card info. The manager was not willing to budge on a price adjustment, sense I paid for a rented textbook at the time of purchase and they ran out (okay) but failed to notify me of the price change. Horrible ethics and morals on NCCC. Do not buy a textbook from here, customer services is awful.

Overall Rating:

Messed up my graduation date and had me taking unnecessary classes. Everytime I was close to solving something with this school they took me ten steps back. No one ever has the right answers and it takes months to get simple questions answered. More than disappointed with NCCC.

I really loved this school when I went there. Free parking, nice and caring teachers and inexpensive and great resources to use for studying. I wish they weren't all the way in sanborn I would go back!!
