Graduation Rate

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 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 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 love Sinclair. I went there for my associates degree. I am currently at a 4 year school, and I honestly miss Sinclair's atmosphere. The classes are small, so you get a lot of extra attention from the professors, which excels your learning. The parking is free, which is awesome! The tuition is very affordable and most of the professors are very helpful. Make sure to check out the "Rate My Professor" website before signing up for a class.

I felt like just another number at Sinclair and felt like I got what I paid for. Some instructors were great while others were horrible.

I am attending Sinclair for summer classes and to try and receive credit for career technical classes I took during highschool.My experience with this college has been absolutely abysmal from the start. When contacting administration about credits I was eligible for, I was given misinformation from the person I was sent to despite the information and protocol for CTAG being available from the State of Ohio, online, and completely free to the public. We were forced to run back and forth between departments and the same exact people who had no idea what they were doing with no progress or even any acknowledgement of the correct procedure for the situation, even when we brought proof of the appropriate actions that should have been taken.The actual classes I have taken so far have been fine, but any positives get blown out of the water by the massive headache that is literally anything else about this school.

It's 2019 and you have to go to the campus to do anything like update your address! No point in taking online classes if you have to go to the campus for something! Guess this is a new change. I've called several times in the past and the students that work in some of the different departments said they were updating it and guess what! No they never did. The customer service here is horrible! Due to them never emailing me or calling me they then turned over a past due amount to a collection agency that i never got a bill for in the first place and this was after i updated my address several times. They never provided proof of the so called 3 bills they sent out. So it went to collect. They didn't care! They weren't held accountable for making sure i got these bills. No calls or emails or anything saying i had a balance due. But being a big college they are allowed to get away with it. It was a big mistake ever going here with so many other college option s! Remember its 2019 and to due a simple address change you have to go in person to due it!
