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 can not believe Stark State has less than 4 stars! This is my second semester and I LOVE it! The faculty are truly amazing and extremely helpful!This college also offers small class room sizes which makes learning more personal. Your teachers and professors always do their best to know each student by name. It is also extremely great for working folks who have busy work loads. They have many courses that can virtually work with any type of schedule.There are many success programs that Stark State offers, including assistance with any subject as well as a great Accommodations program for those with any learning disability/disability from minor to severe. Stark State also always keeps their students in the know through text message and emails. They give you the tools you need in order to succeed.Highly recommend this college!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I started taking a couple classes at Stark State in 2015. I had zero idea what I wanted to major in and what career path to choose so I took a variety of classes. When I took Anatomy and Physiology with instructor Monica Miklo everything clicked. She is a great teacher and since then I have loved every science, math, and physics professor I have had. Dr. Ebru Buyuktanir, Dr. Amy Sanders, Prof. Haiduc, and Dr. Natalee Hilt in particular have been overwhelmingly supportive. They are all easy to approach and talk to. I joined the ACS Chemistry Club at Stark State and over the past two years the club activities have helped me build a very impressive resume for someone like me who is early in their career, including a summer internship in a research laboratory. I would highly recommend taking classes here and getting involved on campus. Of course I have come across some professors that I don't get along with very well, but that is bound to happen anywhere and is simply due to personality differences. Overall there are an incredible amount of opportunities to take advantage of at Stark and the faculty are knowledgeable and helpful.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
If I could give Stark State half a star I would. As a former student I can honestly say that Stark State is a very dishonest institution with poor leadership all-around and overall a sub par education. If you're seeking a quality education go across the street to Kent State Stark or the University of Akron. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID, you will receive a higher quality education at both these universities.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Every time you ask a question from the personnel at the main campus they give you a different answer depending on who you ask. They force you to take and PAY FOR a "student success " course which is basically a money making scheme. If you try to test out of a class, they 'accidentally ' give you the wrong test so you fail and have to take and PAY FOR classes you don't actually need. THIS COLLEGE IS A SCAM!!!! They just do everything they can to get every penny out of you that they can. Their basic math class consists of some kid who plays on his phone throughout while directing you to Khan academy- A FREE WEBSITE!!! for instruction!!!! SCAM ARTISTS!!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Both my wife and I were returning college students and Stark State Alumni class of 2012. We both received a great education. She went for respiratory therapy and I went for Graphic Design.The graphic design program was wonderful. The professors were all very knowledgeable and really cared about their students (huge shout outs to Michelle Lash and Eugene Starr). The classes are small and it's very easy to schedule time with the professors if you need help or need to go over some things. It's also nice to have online classes if that's your thing.For the younger students (and older alike), Stark State also hooks you up with SALT at no charge after graduation, which is a useful tool to help find employement after graduation. Luckily I furthered my career without having to use SALT.The biggest recommendation I could suggest would be to offer more of certain classes. Sometimes only one class is offered a semester and can conflict with working hours. Thank you, Stark State and to all of my professors for giving me a great education and giving me a fighting chance in the workforce after graduation. For those who are seeking four year degrees and beyond, Stark State is definitely a great (and affordable) place to start.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
