    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    53%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    Sullivan College of Technology and Design graduation rate is above the national average.

    53% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Sullivan College of Technology and Design completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    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 consideration 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 educational institutions.

      Nice small classes. Instructors are known in their fields. And the student body is just awesome and full of geeks! And courses move at a steady to fast pace if you want to learn more about any field in Technology this is the place to go.

      Overall Rating:

      I attended SCTD for the Computer Network Security & Forensics Program. It was a very intense and hard program but, the instructors were very knowledgeable in their fields. They take the time to work with you one on one and strive to make you very successful in the field you want to be in. This is a very expensive program but in my mind it was worth every penny. I went from unemployeed to a very successfull carreer and I believe that without the knowledge and confidence that I recieved it would not have been possible. The staff was great and I would recommend anyone with the desire for a change and drive to go get it, to go for a visit.

      Overall Rating:

      I attended this school for their computer security and forensics program. It was almost pointless. Almost every teacher treats you like a child. They expect you to know everything before you step into the classroom, so when you ask questions they all act like you are stupid. This teaches students to shut up, write down their questions, and ask them of the internet when they get home so that they don't feel embarrassed in class. It has a very bad atmosphere to it. I agree with ICVideo completely. It feels more like a vocational school and not a real college. The degree is expensive and actually useless in the world. getting the degree in security is pointless if you don't get the administration degree as well because most places are going to start you off in low level it not security. They teach you all of the security aspects through administration anyway, so the only difference in the degree is that you get the secutiry+ cert if you go through it too, which is cheaper to get without the degree. They lie about prices, the book store prices are pure extortion, and the student services people are just plain rude. They are a service industry. we are paying them. they treat you like they might not let you come back next quarter. well if i'm paying 30+ thousand dollars to be here, you need to be a little bit more respectful. they lie and will tell you that the credits wont transfer anywhere. Financial aid will tell you something different every time you go in there. The admissions officers have no idea what they are talking about. I've heard that if your going for graphic design, this is a great school. but if your going for IT, don't bother. you can get a better education elsewhere cheaper. You have to pay very close attention to your payments because there will be magical charges not listed on your original tuition. The computers are all at least five years old. where does our money go if not back into our education?

      Overall Rating:

      This is a technical school. Formerly Louisville Technical institute, the rebranding was needed. The promised jobs are often low paying, tuition is higher than the local Jefferson Community College, and it is a business more than a school. Credits are LESS likely to transfer if you need to continue your education elsewhere. They will use creative wording without answering questions directly. I can also recall having the same teacher for numerous classes. Please note these are often business men and women who are simply spreading their knowledge (good or bad), and may have a unique approach that doesn't feel like a 4 year college would, because they are not professors. This can be good or bad as well. I do not recommend this school. New face or not, it's still the same. Look at the number of office personnel and instructors that they have carried over.
