Graduation Rate

Loading...
18%
BELOW AVERAGE

Northern Essex Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

18% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Northern Essex 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 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 schools.

Great facilities and staff. Perfect launch pad for anyone looking to gain an associate's degree, and transfer to a state school. Great location right off of the highway with easy access to the Winnikini State walking trails. Usually plenty of parking.

Overall Rating:

If it were possible to leave this facility zero stars, I would. There was an issue with my account. When I reached out to make contact and try to address and resolve the issue, the staff was extremely condescending. I received nothing but negativity and crude sarcasm from the two females. In my personal opinion, they should not work with people, especially young adults that are trying to further their career. Spend the extra money and go to a different establishment for your education.
