Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index 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.

I'm giving this school Zero stars ... As I have read several reviews and it's clear that the advising Department needs to be FIRED.... WHATS THE POINT OF YOU BEING HERE JUST SITTING ON THE CLOCK WAITING FOR LUNCH AND HOW LONG YOU HAVE B4 YOU GET OFF... WITHOUT STUDENTS ATTENDING YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB AND THE FACT THAT STUDENTS ARE HAVING THE VERY SAME PROBLEM AND FOR SUCH A LENGTH OF TIME AS THIS HAS ME THINKING I DEFINITELY SHOULDN'T WASTE MY TIME OR MONEY HERE .... The advisement department may just be a symptom of a much bigger problem but whatever it is the lack of care for your students is a gross negligence and a stain on those that proudly attach there names to this so called College & Higher education. Again if students stop coming then you won't have job

UPDATE: I was told yesterday evening that I was waiting on verification from the Dept of Education. Well I got an email a midnight last from the Dept of Education saying that I received a student loan from the school. No I didn't. So then I called the school office to speak with someone. I was then told that the school had my verification from the D of E but now I have to wait for them to approve my refund. I thought I was just waiting for the D of E verification?This school district has screwed me so many times and I have only been a student for 5 weeks. I took out a federal student loan to attend this school. I was put on a 30 day delay because I am a first time borrower. So today is the 30th day and I had struggled to get by paying for a lot of my school stuff out of pocket. It was ended towards the end of the business day so I decided to call the school to see what was going on and if I had made a mistake. I recorded the conversation that I previously had with a very rude financial call center agent that said "My disbursement was to be released on the 26th" ... which is today. So back to the present, so once I spoke with someone today they told me that the school has 14 DAYS to release my student loan. EXCUSE ME? 14 DAYS!? As if, 30 DAYS wasn't enough. I am beyond infuriated with this school because this is all new to me so all I can do is rely on the information from the school. But how can I do that when there is clearly conflicting information?

I love all the resources Richland offers. Smaller classes are very useful as well.The only thing I would suggest is, if professors are going to require textbooks exclusive to Richland, the bookstore should maintain enough to actually satisfy the amount of students taking the course. If the book is on back order some professors will wait for assignments until the book is available for students. Some will not, which is frustrating because financial aid disbursements and always late.
