Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Rockland Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

HORRIBLE financial aid service and HORRIBLE degree/course planning. SO MANY PEOPLE have been given incorrect course selections for their degree program - specifically for art degrees - and consequently have been forced to spend 4 YEARS at this school on a 2 YEAR degree. Students are graduating with TWICE the credits their degree requires because they weren't initially assigned the appropriate classes to complete their chosen program - and they're forced to pay for all of those additional, extraneous classes, because the financial aid department routinely fails to request the necessary documents from students in time for them to be submitted and processed before the deadline.
