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.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Santa Fe Community College
Seeems very nice college the architecture is also amazingSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
If you are savvy at recognizing a good professor or instructor and don't waste your time with less qualified, less professional instructors you can reap the benefits of all the SFCC has to offer. There are numerous opportunities for credit course students to take advantage of, some of which ( like free tutoring and counseling) are sometimes under-utilized. Any questionable issues I've had at SFCC (and SFCC has issues) , have been eclipsed by many more positive interactions. Any student who wants to learn and is motivated should focus on their goals and look to those at SFCC who can and will help them make that happen.There are some very good educators at SFCC. Seek them out!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Definitely a five star rating. I love going to school here!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Despite what some may say, the Santa Fe Community College is an excellent school. Especially for those of us who can not afford and expensive University.The staff and facilities are awesome and there are many degree options for you to pick from. There are also many extra circular classes that seem like a lot of fun! Sure it's not perfect but no one should expect it to be as they are just a small college. I can say from my own personal experience that I enjoy coming to school here. Everyone is really friendly and most of the teachers are helpful and caring towards their students.As for the previous reviewer, I work at the bookstore and I can tell you that we would never purposely sell you a used book for full price. If that was really the case, you should have come back the the Bookstore with your receipt and shown us the mistake. We would have refunded you your money if what you said was true.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Santa Fe Community College provided me a cheap alternative to expensive universities. I have been going there since being a sophomore in high-school (about 4 years ago) and they have a great duel credit program. I was able to substitute high school classes for credit which was very handy when I graduated from High School. The teachers seem to be a split down the middle between the ones who care and the ones that want to get paid. Most of the pre-rec classes are pretty boarding and nothing special , but they are affordable and not that hard to pass. Its a great place to get that kinda stuff out of the way for people looking to also transfer to another 4 year school. The 2 major down sides I notice are the administration and age gap between students. Admin is slow and unresponsive, they don't warn you of important dates and deadlines resulting in administrative havoc that can take days and even weeks to fix. As for the age groups, I am currently 20 years old and most students at the school are either in High School (14-18 years ) or an older adult crowed ranging from 30-65 years old. So for someone perusing an associates after high school it isn't the best place to make tones of friends and have the stereotypical college experience. However... The classes specializing in media arts are acceptable. Students are usually more motivated to learn then the pre-recs. The teachers are nice and very flexible and will tweak things around for you to help you get your degree sooner. Over all I would suggest this school for kids looking for a great alternative to high school. Or people that are looking to get their 2 year degree for a fraction of the price of a university.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
