Loading...
91%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Penn Commercial Business/Technical School graduation rate is above the national average.

91% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Penn Commercial Business/Technical School 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 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 schools.

My experience at Penn Commercial was great! All of my instructors truly cared and wanted their students to succeed. They were always willing to help if needed. I saw many students who needed help even with things not relating to school; the staff and faculty were always there to help and give support. I also found a job without a problem.
