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 index 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.

I had my fair share of issues at this school, but overall it’s about the same as any school you’ll attend. Not the greatest for my major and it’s a hit or miss if you’ll get decent professors. If able, join trio. They’ll make going to a community 100 times better for you and they’ll help you the best way they can when things go south.

DO NOT USE SCC BOOKSTORE UNLESS IT’S LAST RESORT. It is aweful. Completely overpriced and non-competitive whatsoever. is the way to go. There is one lady in particular in the bookstore who is aweful. She almost had steam coming out of her ears when I asked for the ISBN number so I could SAVE $240 by renting (that number is compared to their renting prices, not purchase prices!) my books somewhere else. She was extremely rude and basically kicked me out of the store. It’s not MY fault they are screwing students over. They’re already charging $181/hour for classes, so there is no reason to make a buck on books. I have proof of the difference in price as well. CHEGG all the way!

The only part of this school that was great is TRIO, they go above and beyond. Meal plan is too expensive and the dorms too restrictive. Treated like children. Been lied to by most of the administration. 4 months later, they still refuse to change my legal name in the system after I had it legally changed. There's always someone in your business and the more people you get to know, the more drama they try to drag you into. All of the classes are early high school level. Why bother going to college if you are repeating high school.

As a local automotive business owner, I've hired several students from the Automotive Technology program without any making it past the 90 day probation period we have. After many years of unsuccessfully finding a qualified mechanic, I decided to start taking classes myself to fill my own need for a mechanic. I really enjoy the classes and teachers, but the constant policy changes make it near impossible to be successful. I tried to meet with the Automotive Department head, but unfortunately policies change from student to student. I'm sticking with it, but the problem is obvious now, and it really is too bad as there really are some good teachers in the program such as Tim Hunter. It's still early maybe things will change.
