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 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.

Wonderful place to teach in a beautiful setting.

Overall Rating:

this school does not even offer financial aid for majority of the programs students come for. Student loans aren't available either for any course, the curriculum is very loose, re used, and without any real leadership. I felt like I was sitting in a public high school class where the teachers worry more about joking, passing you along, and cell phone use than teaching much subject.

Hands down the best program directors and staff! All around fantastic community college.I'm headed back for more classes sometime after July because I loved it so much they will never be able to keep me away...maybe that's not such a bad thing :) *****Def. Recommend this College to anyone! RCC has a wide variety of classes to choose from it really just depends on what you want to do. If you cant make up your mind on what you would like to take just yet,I believe everyone that has ever graduated from this school will tell you the counselors are wonderful and will help you decide without rush or pushing you into something that you dont want to do! Great job staff keep up the good work!
