Loading...

BELOW AVERAGE

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 index 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.

I would like to say that most of the negative comments are regarding the staff and I have to be honest and agree. The Staff is horrible. when you call, when you come in as well. they are not helpful. they treat you as if are asking for welfare and lazy before they get to know you. Yes, They are a very poor representation of the school. But, the professors and the education is what I based my coming to PGCC and return on. I have been there 3 semesters. I had a hardship twice that made me have to pause my classes. and my professors where very understanding. My advisor Mr. Marcus Turner is a Gem. My math professors Aquino and Shah are very knowledgeable, the paste of the class matches the understanding paste. Someone should train the staff to be a bit more professional , ok , a lot more .. But don't let that stop you because you will miss out on a good education and the price ..... Thanks God for Jesus.. Yes, so ignore the rudeness of staff and come get you WISE on... Felicia, Owl for Life....WHO ME?...lQQK, see y'all in class. stop tripping, and FALL into class.

My sister is going here. She purchased her textbooks as e-books. Then was informed, after she paid all that money, that she couldn't use the e-book format in classes. So she ordered the hard copies of her books. After waiting, (a week!) for the books, they call her and say her order was cancelled! With no explanation except to say she needs to call them. When she calls she gets a machine, and basically now she needs to go buy the books in person. Very disappointing.she says most of the teachers are alright so far. But anything to do with planning or management or communication has been terrible.Update: the bookstore was not open when they were supposed to be... Not a holiday, no special reason. Just not open... We're getting the books on Amazon. Hopefully things will take a turn for the better.

Word of advice: try and transfer out of this ghetto school as soon as possible. It'll save you the headache. TAKE ONLINE CLASSES! That way, you will not have to deal with their crap. The only good thing you'll find about this school is the cheap tuition, some good professors if you can find the right ones. So far, I managed to have good ones. And a few nice students along the way. But the unprofessional, unorganized with the admins, staff, etc is a nightmare. I'm speaking from experience with the financial aid and trying to sign up for classes. They act like they don't know what they're doing. Not to mention, you try to be friendly and they give you attitude like you did something wrong. Plus, the staff and admins are incredibly immature and straight up bullies. When you ask for help, they will act irritated, rude or expect you to it yourself. You know that you are going to be around students all day long, and if that is something you cannot handle or deliver civil professionalism, then why are you working here to begin with? Oh yeah, because they just hire anybody, and just hungry for a paycheck. Oh and also, people just tell you different answers or just straight up lie to you. If I had the choice, I would not spend another semester here for another minute. They really need to do something about this ghetto, unprofessional, unorganized, low class school and hire better admins, staff, etc too. I'll be so glad when I'm able to leave this school because I will not miss it. I'm sticking to my statement that Virginia schools are better. Also, another thing to add is that the advisers do not know how to do their jobs! They are just there for the title, so know what YOU want and YOUR plan, because these advisers will just tell you anything. In addition, they will act so conceited to make you look stupid. That's why I'm going with my own plan, and I can't wait to leave this school in the spring of 2018. It has been nothing but very poor. They just want your money. This school is nothing but a joke. If I could give this school a zero, I would in a heartbeat.
