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 educational institutions.

Stay away from this horrible school. You are not even a human being, just a dollar sign. They will just take your money and kick you to the curb.I enrolled in the Health Information program and after completing my course work with a 4.0 GPA, I was to complete my two credit externship to graduate. I waited and never was contacted by the instructor and began with emails and phone calls. No response. I contacted the Dean of Business, Dean of Students (told me it was not his job to talk with students) and the president of the college. No response. I finally filed a compliant with the Better Business Bureau and the school had the gall to tell them they owed me nothing. I was supposed to walk away without a degree after I gave them my life savings. A ten month nightmare later, I finally had my externship.The Career Center is a joke. They have one person working in it and she's worthless. I was unemployed for almost four years after graduating and asked for help with my resume and cover letters. The career services person told me I was on my own and go to a temp agency to find a job. Once the school has your money they don't care. Also, if you are interested in enrolling in Health Information, Medical Coding, Medical Office, etc. don't do it. You are wasting your time and money because there are no jobs. I really regret ever coming to this school.

Let's start with the aesthetic appeal since that's what everyone seems to notice first. Casually observing the building, it leaves a lot to be desired with the basic rectangular structure resembling some type of office headquarters, nothing to get wet about. Perhaps the personnel will enhance the experience? They call the teachers instructors here and for the most part, they explain things sufficiently and are patient enough to deal with idiots. I've acted quite disingenuously degrading myself to the dogmatic teachings and while it is very passive, im sure you can get that degree to get a high paying job. And perhaps I really am dumb thats not out of the possibility. The college for me is more of a social experiment, and the people here are starting to grow on me a bit. Keep it up ill edit this later.

I was impressed with this campus. I attended for an event that emphasized positive health habits for African American women. The building was clean and beautiful and the food in the cafeteria, delicious and nutritious. It was good that there was a parking lot even though we had to pay to park. The fee was fairly reasonable.

The instructor/advisor that taught this medical coding class could care less if they're teaching you right. It's hard for students beginning this career to have a good learning experience. They hand you homework that they don't even understand. They get confused and ask us students what we think is right because they're lost. If an instructor could get so confused in their subject of expertise, then don't teach at all. I highly suggest you not to start your medical coding career here yet alone HIT because it's the same instructor. If Anoka Technical College wasn't so far away from me, I'd switch in a heartbeat. Honestly, I sometimes wonder how some of these instructors are still employed there. I've been in Saint Paul College for 4 years and had more than 10 different instructors. Out of all those instructors, only 5 of them are fantastic. The rest are unorganized, they're ALL, when I say all i mean ALL of the rest, lazy to change their layout because of a change of system or book. They assign students stuff that are irrelevant, and dates are all out of order. IF YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT GOING CHEAP FOR COLLEGE, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER HERE. YOU'RE GOING TO WASTE YOUR FINANCIAL AID MONEY, AND IF YOU'RE PAYING FOR YOUR OWN EDUCATION YOU WILL REGRET IT!! All those successful stories you heard were BS now. Where did all those instructors go with all those successful stories????
