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

      Worst graduation performance I have been. Not only they was not prepare for a rainy day and started late. Everyone was upset and getting wet. We was only giving panchos to wear and all the chairs was wet. I don’t believe after 4yr coming to this school this is the type of graduation the student should it had. Expected better of this school, so sad.

      Great school for becoming a Teacher!! The Education dept was outstanding from 1992..I knew what best schools to teach have been..and best schools for My son..mnow in middle school. Quality education was here. I found One Spark Academy in Ventura County to be the best whole child school for middle schoolers because great Teachers were at SUNY New Paltz. You'll always know what quality learning is here😊😊😊

      Overall Rating:

      This school is biased and extremely prejudice in their application process. Even if you try to work with them to get them anything they may want they are unresponsive. They claim that people who worked in family construction business for over a decade doesn't count towards anything. And getting a letter of recommendation from an employer their wouldn't matter because they're "family" as they put it. They ell me I can go to my pastor, guess I was under the assumption I didn't have to be a Christian to attend here now. This school cares only about one thing and that's is the almighty dollar. They rather have naive kids out of highschool that will waste their parents money than have anybody that actually has a plan and goals fully set. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS SCHOOL. THEY ARE A BUNCH DISCRIMINATING MONEY HUNGRY SLEEZES!

      Overall Rating:

      Terrible. While professors are usually good, the administrative policies are terrible. $10 just to get a transcript? Prices of parking went up by $20 this academic year even though they continue to reduce the number of available lots. Parking tickets are given even when hangtag is on dashboard.The unnecessary fees are out of control all so that the top brass can take in hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
