Graduation Rate


Olympic College graduation rate is below the national average.

25% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Olympic 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 index 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.

I've been in the process of trying to go here. I was waiting to hear back from Financial aid before I committed to any classes first. The process has been a nightmare. I never had this much trouble at my last school. The process is very old fashion. I have to print and fax simple questionnaires. So obviously I have to go somewhere to get things faxed for at least $1.00 a page because who owns a fax machine?.. I have been waiting for them to say they received a document for weeks now. No response to anything I've tried. I can't even get a response to emails. Now I am too late for current classes and I have start the whole financial aid process for the next school year. As a person attempting to be a new student here I can tell you its an unorganized mess with very little guidance and responses.

Everytime I call or go there, they give me the run around, and absolutely nobody likes to answer their phone or call you back.

This was my first quarter at Olympic College, and I was in the middle of getting Fasfa and signing up for My CAA. Three weeks into the quarter I was told that I needed to pay $1200 for tuition, and I had 5 days from registering for classes to do that. While I know I that I had to pay this amount, I DID NOT know it was required in 5 days within registering for classes. By the time I was told this, I was DROPPED from all of my classes. I WAS ATTENDING CLASS FOR 4 WEEKS UNTIL THEY DROPPED ME. Even after the fact that I payed $300 in materials(which I could no longer return) I was in the library waiting for my next class to start whilst studying for my exam the following day, and I received an email telling me I got dropped from my classes. Mind you they emailed me this AFTER the fact the cashiers office closes. So I contact the cashiers office the following day and the lady tells me I have no option but to pay close to the amount that was owed. I'm sorry but I dont just have $1,200 or close to it, lying around. This is way too expensive for just two classes to begin with. It's not okay.

I recently graduated with an AS transfer degree and these last two years have been absolutely amazing! This school is one of the best I've been to. All the teachers I've had are experienced and very knowledgeable in their respective fields. It's easy to get financial aid or get one of the many scholarships offered by the school. If you join one of the many student government clubs they give you a chunk of change to work on whatever extracurricular projects or go on whatever outings you may fancy. Lastly, they partner with several universities which means I can "transfer" and finish my four year degree right here.I think if I had to give any constructive criticism it would be to improve the efficiency of the admin offices. It took literally a week to get enrolled and any task requires being passed around between people at least twice. Granted it's gotten better in the time I've been there (getting a parking permit no longer means a hike across campus!), however I recommend consolidating the cashier and admissions front end into one.All in all, it's been a great two years and I look forward to starting at WSU on your campus this fall.
