Graduation Rate

Loading...
14%
BELOW AVERAGE

North Central Texas College graduation rate is below the national average.

14% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to North Central Texas 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 an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider 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.

I am so glad I took my science courses at another school. I have a few friends who took their A&P’s at NCTC and the experiences they described to me were such that they would infuriate anyone. I’m actually surprised no one has sued them as yet, but I imagine it’s coming by the talk I hear. I was told that at NCTC if you had to retake any of the prerequisites to improve your grade they actually hold those against in the form of deduction of a point from the application. I was told that it didn’t matter when that repeat had happened even if it was before they instituted this policy last year. So everyone that advising and the program told to retake it or them as it were not only spent extra time and money and resources going to school that they didn’t need to they also lowered their chance of acceptance even lower. I was also told by another student that their online instructor for A&P would open her major exams on Sunday night at 8 pm and if you weren’t available or had the ability to log in at that time you got a zero and if by some way you were able to log in during that hour she left the Test window open you were graded on what you could finish by 9pm and the exam cut off. I have always had a problem with those instructors that made you Test on a Sunday and , but this instructor is even worse with a ONE hour window on a Sunday to complete exams. I saw for my own eyes this instructors syllabus and she didn’t care what the reason she gave no make up or drop any kind of lower scores. Let me say to that female A&P instructor she knows who she is and I’m sure your institution does as well. Hey lady they are taking your course Online for a reason. Some people are single moms, and Dads some have to work, and any other host of things that brought them to your horrible course such as limited instructors to teach and limited opportunity to take it in seat due to the lack of available classes. I really hope some attorney reads this review and finds fault and that those students who had the unfortunate experience to have to take their science prerequisites for the nursing program are taken care of. And especially those who failed because of a instructor that seems to enjoy people not passing her class due to her rigid test policy on a day the school isn’t even open.

Blame it on the new system is all they ever say. You play russian roulette when you call they will transfer you multiple times and no one can tell you anything but the new system is not working with the old system. took 2 months to get refunds at the first of the year took 6 weeks at mid semester. Now I need an official transcript 2 weeks now. The new system has it on hold we have to review the application before it will be off hold.?????? I cant go in person because the system has it on hold and we have to review it before it can be taken off hold. Stay away from this place if you can!!!!!!!!

Started off at the Corinth campus which was okay for most of my prereq basics, but dealing with any or most of their administration department is horrible, they don't know what's going on half the time! NOW I am in the LVN program in Gainesville and absolutely LOVE it! The administration actually know and care about what is going on and will take the time to really help you. If you are looking for a nursing degree and want to go an "easier" faster route definitely try to get into the LVN program, it's a year long and I absolutely love the staff and have had no problems with the department in a whole at all. They offer a bridge program from LVN to RN so you don't have to do as many prereqs as you would just going straight into the RN program, you also won't get turned down when applying to the program if you're doing their bridge program!
