Graduation Rate

Loading...
16%
BELOW AVERAGE

Quinsigamond Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

16% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Quinsigamond 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 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 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.

Most of the bad reviews are coming from people who had ONE bad experience at like the book store or whatever or i gEt tHiEr aDs oN hUlu, though the veteran who shared his story probably has a decent case to make. Anyway I got a business degree from this college and if you actually try you can do really really well here, with great professors and programs like the honors program which gives high level learning at bottom dollar, and wonderful faculty like the folks at PTK, disability services, or the Fuller Center. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to work on regarding graduation rates, the food, no one card system, etc but I couldn't give this place anything less than 5 stars because of all of the wonderful people who give 110% here, especially in those departments I mentioned. If you live in Worcester don't spend 30k a year to go to Assumption, you'll save so much money to come here. Seek opportunity, study for your tests, respect your professors and faculty, and most importantly, do your damn homework; I guarantee you'll be a success at this place if you do all of these things.

This is an awesome school and I am so disappointed that one teacher ruined it all for me. DO NOT take Professor Jane Joyce accounting classes or any classes from her. She is awful and not a good teacher in general. You will waist your money, time, and probably want to rip your hair out when she talks. I have been at this school for about two years now and never have I come across a teacher like her.

I had to cancel my Hulu subscription because I can't watch a show without being spammed (on average 12-15 times a day) with their commercials that have zero relevance to me or anyone in my household. Seems irrational for a community college to waste money so frivolously.

Overall Rating:

Had a horrible experience with business office. One younger woman practically looked down on me and treated me like I wasn't worth her time. I simply had trouble understanding my financial situation and was asking how to fix my account from being on hold and she talked down to me and treated me like a child. She was extremely unprofessional and discourteous to the point that I felt insulted. I will never deal with anyone at the business office in person again because of this. They need to learn how to treat students with respect.

Overall Rating:

Great way for cheap schooling, but help in the school is a No-Go. Most math and science professors barely speak English and Advising offices are only sometimes helpful and there would be a lot of frustration with the school but at least you’ll save money in the end , right ?
