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 consider 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 Diego Christian College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I had some amazing teachers. I had teachers who were flexible and some who were strictly "by the book." I had a teacher presumably forget why he got into teaching and then halfway through a course realize he enjoyed teaching and challenging students constructively. All to be expected at any college. What you wouldn't expect is the administration to be so unorganized, uninformative, uncommunicative, and sometimes irresponsible. The turnover rate is ridiculous as I had 3 or 4 different counselors in 3 years attending. Upon the completion of my degree, I was told to expect my degree to arrive in the mail in 3-6 weeks. After 3 months passed, I needed to call them to remind them. They did promptly send it to me after my phone call but not with my middle name capitalized. These were just a few of my headaches. The education was good but the headaches after about the first year made finishing truly a mental marathon.

I have not been but am planning on visiting the school. For i am a christian and want to learn Gods way in buisness.. Glad San Diego has such a school...

Overall Rating:

This school is a little less rigorous than most high schools. I went here to see what the place was like because I went on 2 dates with a blond surfer. I looked into the Teaching credential program. The reason why kids are confused in school is because teaching credentials or teaching as a major does not prepare a teacher to actually learn math beyond + - * /. Kids wanting to learn science physics or chemistry are at a disadvantage. I checked out the library here. I like to visit college campuses when I travel internationally. I am an MGF writer and hope to share deep material with readers of all audiences. I do like that this school has its students sign a pledge to avoid intimate physical relationships. It prompted me to ask my high schools in Vermont to have the same requirement. I think that students should not feel pressured to be in relationships while they are in school. In San Francisco you are expected to have a PhD before you even think about dating.
