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 schools.

I was really looking forward to get interviewed and work with the college as a peer helper for extra cash. As soon as I walked into the room I could feel the unwelcoming vibe from One women in particular. She continuously rolled her eyes as I was answering the questions from another lady. They weren't very informative on what the job consisted of on the application itself so it was a little shock when I was told in detail about the hours and dress code all in all too strict for such a position. And also not to mention you have to be enrolled to keep that job. If you are a struggling college student with some help from parents like I am I feel it's best to get a weekend job especially if you are starting your career program. Because you don't really know what you are getting yourself into. As for the women who was rolling her eyes everytime I talked that was very uninviting even if you were having a bad day or not that was uncalled for and unprofessional. Not a type of setting I want to work with. Thanks for the opportunity though. And giving me a st Philip's interview experience.

Went down to st.Philips to speak with my advisor as she had not responded to my numerous emails and phone calls.Ashlyn Norman should really be removed from the front desk. As she was very rude and did not allow me to speak with my advisor or any advisor for that matter as it clearly states on advising line that you can do WALK IN Monday - Thursday she says my advisor only does walk ins on Wednesday well I work and my work schedule doesn’t revolve around her late day! Which is why I said I would speak with any advisor as I was just trying to get a course number. Ashlyn I hope you read this and realize that you are a really nasty person. You are apart of the reason why this college is losing its ratings.

St. Philip's College Has screwed me over so bad . Enrolled me in a course , the school dropped me from the course ( NOT ME , the school did ) due to the ratio ( didn’t make sense to conduct the course due to not enough students ) . and now want me to pay back over 2,000$ to enroll back in school when i don’t even pay for school out of pocket being that my dad is retired military my course , books , room & board and i get a monthly allowance as long as my attendce and grades is up . The VA requested they money back , they sent it back and now I’m “held reliable “ for a class i didn’t take , they dropped me from & won’t do a payment arrangement “ had to all be paid up front “ . I’ve been asking for documents for 2 years now & all i get is a piece of paper with a print out of the class and how much i owe . Every year when i file taxes i ask “if i owe any money for any school “ and for 3 years now the irs has told me No . I could have been done with school 😒. Or Switch schools and lose all my credits and take another 4 years to graduate . And the more people i talk to the same thing has happened to them or they “had them taking the same classes over “

Currently taking a summer class here and every staff member that I have encountered so far has been very friendly and helpful! Plenty of resources here to help you succeed and pass your classes such as the tutors at MathWorld. Professors here are just as helpful and eager to help you and make sure you're doing well throughout your courses.
