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 a huge 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 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 institutions.

Former student trying to inquire about why transcript hasn’t reached the university. Tried different lines and no one picks up the phone. What’s the point of having a contact number if no one answers the phone?If you have the means , go to an actual university. High schools have better student services.

So disappointed, went to school at Dallas Community College. Worked hard and graduated only to return for some additional hours. After today never again. I ordered transcripts and took other classes well after I attended the class in question and they want to hold my transcripts based on an out of date principal. I actually received my other degrees from other colleges and for a Bachelors and Masters. Why a community college is in need of my degree not sure. If that is what they truly require not sure why I am just now being asked 13 years after the class actually took place. Their theory “ you signed the form”. Another frustrating concern I don’t understand is why if you call ahead they don’t give you the information. A five minute issue took two hours. Also, there is no privacy when it comes to student information. Your personal information is up for all to hear. Including when they discuss FERPA and include student information ( even without a name information can identify an individual). Mark tried to help but at the very least he could have offered a complimentary one before and explained I would need to come back with transcripts for the other so I would not be in a bind.

I really love Richland College and I believe that they have the best professors available over there. But I am giving this school one star mainly because of the learning center. I was taking a math class in Maymester and it was really tough. My professor suggested me to go to the learning center for math tutoring. I went there at 12:00 PM as their timings for learning center in Maymester are from 12:00 PM-4:00 PM. The lady on the reception told me that the tutors don't come until one. I decided to wait there. After half an hour another girl came who was also a student. And after 5 minutes the tutor came and went straight towards the other girl, ignoring me completely even though I came first and was sitting at the front while the other girl was at the far back corner. I thought that they might be friends who are waiting for tutor. I went to the front desk to ask when will the tutor come because I was waiting since an hour. The lady told me that the tutor is here and she pointed towards the same girl who ignored me. She didn't even ask me once if I needed help or not? The other tutor came and she said what do you need help with ? I said Calculus and the lady at the front desk couldn't understand me and rolled her eyes and showed me a very careless and unprofessional attitude. When I complained to the other tutor she said you should have sat at the back and waited for the help (which I think is the most stupid excuse). Firstly, I came first and the tutor should have asked me who came first but instead she ignored me. She even passed by me 3-4 times. Secondly, the attitude of staff was very unprofessional and rude. They have always been like this. I am very disappointed.

I love Richland! I have been going here for a little over 2 years and I have to say this school has helped me in tremendous ways. They have great tutoring resources such as the math corner, writing lab, and the science corner. They Professors really care about their students and they have great advisors too. I would definitely recommend this college to anyone.
