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 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. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Overall Rating:

Am enrolled in the truck driving school at Eagle Pass; it is our final day of class. The staff and instructors at SWTJC -- Eagle Pass respond to all concerns with genuine care and attention for helping any student succeed.PRICE: 5 STARSAt approx: $3600.00 USD, this price cannot be beat! The national average for CDL school is $5-$6K USD. Not only will you learn to drive standard-- not taught at all schools-- but, you'll have professors who have 15-20+ years of experience in all aspects of CDL work. Professors are definitely there to collect a paycheck; and, most hold driving jobs elsewhere. All professors show significant interest in helping others on their way to better jobs.CLASSROOM TRAINING: 3 STARSOne MUST speak or understand Spanish fluently in order to pass this part of the course. At least 1/2 of the instructors speak Spanish only. If you do not speak Spanish, it is best to speak with Mr. Olivares or Mr. Talamantes, they'll elaborate until the concept(s) is understood.Expect lots of repetitive, memorization-based [classroom] curriculum.DRIVING TRAINING: 3 STARSThere was definitely not enough drive time-- the fail rate for the CDL exam is stark, and sobering. Double-clutching is not taught on standard 10-speed trucks.Expect to have uneven distribution in driving time per student. Some will drive more than others, and it is easy to fall behind. Expect to argue with your classmates at least once over who gets to drive-- not enough trucks, nor space in the yard for 16 students. If one doesn't run to get the keys from the professor-- much like a dog chasing after a bone-- he will not drive.TRUCKS: 3 STARSTrucks are constantly breaking down. Air conditioners do not work on at least 1/2 of the trucks; expect to sweat in the summer, or freeze in the winter. Trucks are worn out, and filtly-- lots of student sweat, oily surfaces, and grime all over the insides, disgusting. Mysterious beeps emanate from the dash, grinding noises are common, leaks are common, and check engine lights are intermittent. Bring hand sanitizer! Bring laundry money-- the yard is very dusty.FACILITIES: 5 STARSThe campus building is brand new -- the janitor works harder than anyone! The truck practice yard is very dusty, muddy when wet; yet: floors are still immaculate. Bathrooms are serviced everyday, and the classrooms are clean and organized. A computer lab would be nice for job applicants post-training. SWTJC has a library-- 5 min drive from CDL building-- available for guest computer use.Altogether, a pretty good school. Administration is responsive and open to addressing concerns, classroom material(s) are well-prepared, and you'll learn to drive a standard. I'd definitely recommend this school to a friend!

The eagle pass campus has professors that discourage students. They have professors that show up late or always cancel class, they don't properly lecture and are only there to collect a paycheck. This campus seems more invested in wanting to get paid and not helping students or providing the quality education that the students need.
