Graduation Rate

Loading...
27%
BELOW AVERAGE

Pearl River Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

27% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Pearl River 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 an extensive 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 schools.

Laura Chislom at the finance office is someone you DO NOT want to deal with, she was happy to help me before I paid off my loans but the day after I pay them a problem came up and she hung up on me after going off. Do not go to school here.

I attended Pearl River Community College in 2006 and 2007 and found it to be an excellent institution of instruction. The instructors at Pearl River Community College provided me with a top-notch education and instilled in me the drive to pursue excellence in all of my academic endeavors. PRCC was instrumental in my educational pursuits. Because of their sincere efforts in guiding the paths of their students I was able to earn my A.A. with a 4.0 GPA. I later attended USM and earned my B.S. with a 4.0, and then went on to earn an M.A. and PhD. Because of the impact that Pearl River Community College had on my life I decided to seek employment there so that I could return the favor by encouraging and mentoring as many students as possible. Pearl River Community College serves a special role within the community, providing quality education to students of various ages and backgrounds. At Pearl River Community College the instructors and staff truly care about the lives, careers, and academic pursuits of their students.
