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 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 picture. 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.

I really like going to Shawnee very relaxed atmosphere. The advisers are always willing to help you and explain any concern. The professors are always willing to help in anyway they can.Shawnee has a great library staff.Just a great college.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
The entry-level, pre-owned Toyota Tercel of higher educations. Reliable, no-frills conveyance to a better career, but in no sense is it a Lexus or BMW. That's not a knock, it's just the plain truth of it. And in times like these we should all recognize the appeal of inexpensive, austere educations and vehicles.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
First off, the campus itself is in poor condition. The sidwalks are cracked, and the stairs are worn and a tripping hazard. If you are physically disabled, be warned, there is hardly no disabled access aroud campus. The elevators are used by those who are athletic and can walk perfectly fine, but crowd out those in wheelchairs.... There are professors who are either unfair in grading or don't know what they're doing.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
