Graduation Rate


Sinclair Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

12% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Sinclair Community 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 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 schools.

I absolutely love Sinclair. I take classes at both the Mason and Dayton campuses and nearly all of my professors have been phenomenal. The faculty here are outstanding, and really try their best to invest in their students and do whatever it takes to see us succeed. Everyone from the security to my advisors have made me feel like I belong at this school. I recommend Sinclair to anyone who needs to begin college, with a decided major or career path or not, because regardless of your goals Sinclair can assist you in some way.

I attended Sinclair for three years as I worked on my Associate's degree in history. It took me a bit longer because I had to take some extra math classes before I got to the one that I actually needed to graduate and my first quarter there was a mess because I had chosen to go back to school on a whim and wasn't really prepared for it. Once I had gotten back into the swing of being a student, I actually typically enjoyed my classes at Sinclair. I took night classes usually from 5PM until 9PM as well as some online classes. It was ridiculously convenient and generally all the classes I needed were available (not all of the, but most). Instructors were generally helpful, though some could be abrasive. But overall my classroom experience with Sinclair probably couldn't have been better. I moved on to Ohio State to get my BA (still working on it) and I WISH they were as flexible schedule-wise as Sinclair.My biggest issue with Sinclair was not the classroom experience but the administrative one. I had more problems with their financial aid department than anyone should ever have to deal with. On more than one occasion they would either email me and tell me I had zero financial aid for the semester, which would send me into panic mode, only to get my financial aid awarded like it should have been anyway. Twice, I think it was, they awarded my financial aid and then yanked it for reasons that were never, ever explained to me, and they actually unenrolled me from my classes because of THEIR administrative error. Their "advisors" are about as helpful as a boulder that has fallen in to the middle of a highway. My "advisor" never answered emails and never advised me on anything so my contact with her was limited to one visit and about two emails over my three years.SO, Sinclair is great. It's cheap, instructors are generally helpful, and you learn some pretty cool stuff if you take the right classes and they tend to understand that adults have lives and things that need to be taken care of. Things that instructors at, say, Ohio State, couldn't care less about. So I recommend Sinclair. Just keep a sharp eye on the administrative part of your experience with them. Particularly the financial aid department.

Personally, I have only attended sinclair and not any other college. However, I did appreciate the amount of help I was able to or offered to receive through my professor(s). Also, on the other hand it would’ve been nice to have some more available tutoring outside classes. Third, some parts of Dayton to seemed very rude. Quiet honestly, though I could just been me being a little sensitive. Either way the school itself was fine. Lastly, I’d say that I was overall a good experience I had at sinclair. In addition, to me transitioning from mason to Dayton. Thanks and have a great day.
