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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Ocean County College
I learned a lot from the professors at this college especially in my lab science classes. The library is always updating with cool books and the librarians are very helpful when you ask them for advice on a research topic or when you are interested in checking out a book. The campus atmosphere is welcoming and the nature trails in the back are great to walk on and destress. The advisors in the financial aid building are very informative and help the students understand financial aid and other college education things. Thank you for a great college experience!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Very bad school. Rude staff.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
This place is awesome. I had so much fun and quality time here, making new friends, and getting my degree in computer science. I liked it a lot!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I have been on hold trying to reach someone in financial aid for 1 hour and 16 minutes and counting (for what is going to be a 2 second question).. it is IMPOSSIBLE to reach anybody, but every time I walk into the office there are two people sitting at the desk talking to one another, not the phone calls coming in. At this point, I am going to have to drive all the way up to campus JUST to get an answer (since that will clearly be quicker than calling?!) That's insane. Very discouraging, irritating, and unprofessional. Not too mention that when you do appear in person to address your concerns, or ask some questions, the people who work there are RUDE and act so irritated by your presence. Hire more people to work in your financial aid department PLEASE.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I have been coming to occ for three years now and there have been amazing steps taken in the right direction. Only problem I have is with the bookstore, it is great that the lines aren’t long anymore however they run out gen ed books for weeks, some staff is rude, some are helpful. Specifically, they ran out of college algebra books by the first day of class starting, very irritating because by the time I got the book I was behind in my class by an entire week. Aren’t there registration lists that says how many students are expected to take the class? I feel as though it was a situation that could have been easily avoided. Not to mention outrageous prices.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
