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.

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 spent four semesters at this school. Big mistake on my part. If you’re a veteran and they mess up your MGIB paperwork, they will treat you like you are a clueless moron. Every semester my paperwork was messed up on the schools part. As a result I spent a few months not receiving my MGIB. Also when applying for FASFA they counted my VA disability payments as income and took away my FASFA. Payments which are not taxed and not supposed to be counted as income. So now I’m sitting in collections. Thank you SFCC.

Great choir program but theatre is a joke and Eric Yazell is a mentally abusive nut job who cheats on his wife with students

Went here for two years and got my associates. After going to umkc for the past year I can say that sfcc is a complete joke of a school. I know it's not a big fancy university but the dorms are old and gross. There was a bandaid on my wall and it had been painted over when they repainted. The advisors are useless unless you use the trio advisors (never trust Dana Goosen terrible advisor doesn't listen and gives bad advice). It's impossible to get ahold of the school tech and main office. There were so many other problems but I feel like this is good enough.
