Graduation Rate

Loading...
6%
BELOW AVERAGE

Prince George's Community College graduation rate is below the national 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 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 worst mistake of my life was being a student at this racist and unprofessional in every sense of the word "college". Please take your business elsewhere if you want to be treated like a human being and not like a roach by the professors and staff. This school does NOT care about teaching the student, or helping them progress. I think the only motivating factor is the money. A student does not have a say in this school. No matter what type of evidence you have. Be prepared to loose when they say so!There is plenty of corruption by the professors and the staff. It's so sad. At the same time , It's PG, what else can you expect. My last math professor, Ahmad Harvey, was a total surprise. Jokes about sex, favoritism to the MAX, missing classes ( resulting in classes over the weekend in order to catch up! Hello! There is a reason why i did not sign up for weekend classes! I cannot make it on the weekends!!! Still, if you dint make it, he would accuse you of not wanting to pass LOL WOW SMH), letting people that he was cool with cheat (literally, but if you were cool with him, he dint mind much.) ETC What a freaking douche bag. What hurt me the most about this so called "professional" was that instead of helping the people that were falling behind, he would say things like " you are not going to pass anyway", yet, the WOMEN that were passing, either because they were cheating or cause they were simply passing, he would flirt with and encourage them. Thanks for the motivation Professor Harvey. What a way to help the students that really need motivation.

Dual enrollment so only took 2 classes. Teachers and peers were good and willing to help. Professor Streets egl 1010 amazing professor very great teacher and willing to assist you to succeed. Facilities dirty and outdated. Campus often smells like marijuana especially elevators. Parking horrendous, extremely difficult to find spot and can be hard to get in and out. Dual enrollment wise good experience but wouldn't go there full time.

My Alumni, this school is not for everyone and I mean that in the best way possible. But if You are one with perseverance and focus You'll easily achieve all of the academic goals and possibly start on some career goals . The resources there are everything You make them. If You decide to attend make sure and I want to stress make sure to use the network!Great staff and they are building so the campus is expanding. I'm excited for the future of this institution.

Felt like I wasted my time and money here. The staff doesn't really care and the professors are mediocre with the exception of Professor Conley. It felt more like a high school than an actual college. I ended up transferring to a different institution because I didn't feel like I was learning anything.

Phlebotomy program , I took the course this winter and although i thought the course was very informative, don't be fooled this continuing education class is all about getting your money, after you complete the class you may have to wait up to 6 months before you are able to do your clinical portion. I paid in full my whole +1000.00 lecture tuition and was told they would not even give me a letter of completion until I paid another 2-3 hundred for Clinical even though i would not do them for 5-6 months. this is crazy do your research... Call the National Phlebotomy board. #Disappointing
