Graduation Rate

Loading...
18%
BELOW AVERAGE

Orange County Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

18% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Orange County 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 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 educational institutions.

The campus is nice place to get an education and it is fun walking around from class to class.

1.) my academic advisor makes it very clear that he is avoiding having any sort of meeting with me to discuss any type of questions to further my education. I have been here for a year and a half now and still have no clue as to what I need or what is even required of me besides a concepts of physical wellness class. When I bring up I want to change my major I was directed to someone else when all I wanted was the form to actually change my major. When I did meet with my advisor last year to make my schedule for this semester every time I had a question he rolled his eyes and gave me an attitude so I blindly picked my classes by myself with no help. 2.) one of my professors refuses to show me my grade, made it clear not everyone “deserves” to be in college, makes it clear homework can only hurt your grade but cannot help it, gives little to no instruction but gets upset and claims the class is “disrespecting” him when we mess up, I was taking our midterm this week and a student walked in 15 minutes late smelling of HEAVY weed and he did absolutely nothing, it was very distracting and annoying, 3.) I have learned absolutely nothing in the last 1.5 years. I’m Trying to navigate through the transfer process by myself because I know i won’t get any help from staff. This school is an absolute joke

So far my daughter has gotten limited help with registration and financial aid. Then we find out that the classes this advisor signed her up for are not needed for her degree and no one can seem to help. We get her bill and see there are child care fees and find out all students are required to pay this child care fee regardless. Tell me why my 18 year old with no kids has to pay a child care fee? Like these classes we are paying for are not expensive enough now we have to pay for the care of kids that are not ours! Ulster seems to have been the better choice here. So regretting having her goto Orange.

Honestly i just want to go to college this year because i couldnt last year. But oh my god is this college slow. If you aren't ontop of them 24/7 dont expect anything to happen. They charged me 5000 extra dollars for not being an orange county resident. So i brought my papers in 2 days after i registered for classes this was before july 15. On my student finances i was waiting for them to verify so the charge would be removed. Two days ago i went in to find out what was happening. They told me they needed a copy of my morgate bill from 6 months ago. WHY did they not tell me this when i handed everything else in. The lady at the office told me i was good to go. Thank god my mom was in town and i could give it to them or i had to find a way to come up with 1300 dollars in 2 days. I still had to taked out a loan to cover the rest, which i didnt want to do. They will tell you absolutely nothing if you're not ontop of them.I dont understand why i have to get penalized and possibly have my classes dropped for them not communicating to me.I also applied 2 years ago so i took my placement test during high school and placed in english with a prerequisite. I have gone to college since then and believe that my writing skills have gotten better. At the time i didnt know i placed in a prerequisite so i asked the lady if i should retake the test she said i was fine. The head of the English department was good at helping me with my transfer. I dont care about taking english 101 but i dont think i need the prerequisite. So i have to see what i can do about that.

I don’t mind the classes, but financial aid is terrible! I’m expected to pay 3,000 out of pocket for the semester, no thanks. I called financial aid to see what was going on and they keep giving me the runaround! They either take your money or want you there for more than 3 years!
