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 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 institutions.

The teaching staff is great, and always willing to help no matter if your class was face to face or online. I wish there were more selections on the Macomb campus so students didn't miss out on certain things because they don't want to drive to Canton. The financial aid comes about half way through the semester in the mail, which i think is about standard for a community college. My only issue is the fact that they tell students they are getting map grants and students never see that money.
