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 educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Ocean County College
Unbelievable. The people that work in the registration office are truly miserable. Condescending, sarcastic, and rude. Lady at the front desk (Claudette, Claudine?) has a major attitude and her nails are too long to type with. Went in twice last week to complete a chargeback packet and was appalled at the way students were spoken to. While I was being helped, I could hear another woman from a nearby cubicle speaking to what sounded like a potential student over the phone in a really patronizing tone (something like, “I told you this already, you need to register for CHEM ONE OH ONE.” Punctuating the last few words loudly and firmly.). I understand working at a community college must be frustrating at times, but there is no need to take out that frustration on the people that are PAYING MONEY to attend their school. Thank god I’m a Brookdale student, because I would never give my money to that place if that’s the way they treat people. No one forced these women to take jobs there, so if they don’t like what they do, they should pursue different professions. My sister went there for one semester and actually warned me about the registration office before I went, but I didn’t believe her til I actually got there and experienced it for myself. I can’t speak for the school itself since I’m not a student, but I will say that they should hire more professional individuals because first impressions are everything. Based on what I’ve seen and experienced, I would rather pay out of county tuition than to set foot in this school ever again.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

OCC now charges you for your books automatically forcing you to spend the extra money even if the professor does not utalizeSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
OCC gave me what I needed to continue with furthering my education. Registration has always been mostly easy, except for some of the advisors who gave me completely wrong information. Luckily, it didn't put me behind schedule at all and I'll be graduating this year. I saved so much money by taking advantage of the NJ STARS program. If you're eligible, definitely do it!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
