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 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 educational institutions.

This college is always a step above the others. They have instructors that are active in many of the fields they teach. I also notice they seem to have cutting edge equipment and up to date on software and skills. I've been to almost all of the community colleges and this one is my favorite.

I’m a veteran. Went to NLC to get some basic credits out of the way. It’s a nice school, if you’re older, I suggest going to evening classes because you’ll be around a lot of young students in you go during the day. The VA on campus is nice, they’re all very helpful and knowledge able. It’s a good place to start if you wanna go to school (or go back) I’d give it 5 stars if it had more options for food and better weekend hours. Overall great school.

But it was 5 sec i got inside the lab and i was threw out. I went to police, they said they cam do nothing. I talked to testing center assistant manager, he didnt do nth. I am very frustrated now. Everyone was looking at me and ignoring inside the testing center.

I was homeless for a year and a half and thanks to the services and facilities here i was able to continue my education. The faculty was great as far as educators. Top notch. However the previous faculty for services in different departments were garbage. I felt more professors here were down to earth and honest however weird but highly knowledgable Not sure of the people in the higher depts got their stuff together. But i heard new programs for students exist. Overall it is a beautiful school and i had an amazing experience here. The school police are the most awesome people I have ever encountered in my life. Also helped me a ton
