Graduation Rate

Loading...
9%
BELOW AVERAGE

San Antonio College graduation rate is below the national average.

9% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to San Antonio College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

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 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 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for San Antonio College

Overall Rating:

I'm just trying to register for classes for the first time this semester and I've had to jump through so many hoops and hurdles. Most of the employees have an attitude, though I've met some friendly folks (which were few and far in between). Everyone seem so jaded by their job. Communication between student and college is lacking.I have to go to random people asking "what do I do now?" It's so annoying.The only reason I give this place two stars so far is because of those kind folks who did their best to guide me in the right direction.

Overall Rating:

Admission staff do not help at all!! What they need to do is individual counseling, and talk to the students and help them figure out their career path and filing out the forms. All they do is sit you in-front of a computer in a big lobby with 15 other students trying to register and let you figure out everything on your own. This place is a joke. Taking my G.I bill somewhere else.

Overall Rating:

Staff are surprisingly very hostile and negative consistently coming from the kids (students) who work in the service industry and KNOW what bad people are. Even on a very bad day I couldn't be as mean as the staff here. It's hard to even comprehend how just angry and mean they all are constantly. It's the worst of San Antonio. Its not just a few its across the board. From Admissions to Financial Aid even including the VA.Teachers and Professors have been amazing so far. I love the Mexican Studies Department and Humanities.Financial Aid is horrific, its 6 weeks into the semester and I still haven't got my financial aid and all they say is that its "pending".

I'm here to echo everything negative that has been said about this place. Not that I have a choice but if I did, I would've walked out and never enrolled due the first time I met with the incredibly rude staff in admissions.You will not get the help you need from the staff, (admissions, registration, advising), they will give you the run around and waste your time for no reason other than their own incompetence. If you do find someone who actually helps, please email me the name of the staff member who is willing to work, I need them to do a few things for me.They do not accept transfer credit from other state colleges for the nursing program so guess what, you wasted all that time elsewhere for nothing besides massive amounts of debt.Thanks.I'm hoping, though I'm not holding my breath, that the teachers are good and that i will be enrolled in a private college/university for the spring semester.
