Graduation Rate

13% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to SUNY Westchester Community College 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 a huge 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 institutions.

Look tutoring center please don't fail me. I have no place to store my stuff. Its a 15 minute drive. Sometimes I didn't have the gas to get to class. I could really use the tuition money.There is no reason to fail me. My classmates were not smarter than I am. More importantly a better person than I am. There is no reason to hate someone over inside genetics or SAT scores. The people who I retaliated towards really let me have it. I was always so nice to everybody. I want to go away. I don't know what the big deal was about going away to college and getting a house. I am an adult. I am extremely poor. I didn't sign myself up for WCC. I want the tuiton in my name. Nobody should've failed me. Anything my classmates who got higher grades than me could've done I could've done better.

Overall Rating:

The professors are very helpful and knowledgeable, but I cannot say the same about the majority of the students. Most of my classes were filled with unmotivated, lazy, entitled, and ignorant people. Sadly, some of the professors inflate grades and pass those who should not have passed the course.

Overall Rating:

Decent college, but with all due respect, there are improvements that need to be made.PROS: -Helpful professors who have faith in their students, and would love for them to succeed. There are professors who are enthusiastic, funny, understanding, reasonable, and prompt.-Academic Support Center/Tutoring to help improve the academic progress of the courses.-Transportation would be available.-Some academic advisers are helpful-Bookstore, has a variety of things you will need for the semester. Like, notebooks, supplies, etc.-Extensions, to go to accessible classes if you live too far from campus.-Financial Aid, if eligible, it could cover tuition, though, you must attend constantly.-Blackboard, to stay up to date with assignments.-Student email, to contact professors.CONS/IMPROVEMENTS THAT NEED TO BE MADE : -The mathematics department needs an overhaul. It seems like WCC would just hire anyone to teach math. The final exams should not be taking over 40%-60% of a student's final grade. It's not fair that a student did so well in a math class, throughout the entire semester, but then when the student does poorly on the final exam (only because it had what was not on the practice final), the student fails and retake the entire course. That's setting a student back.-Not to mention, the general education courses that has NOTHING to do with the degree you're going to college for, SHOULD NOT BE REQUIRED. It's a waste of time, money and energy. Students have already gone through those kinds of classes in high school. The only courses that students should be required to take are the courses that are SIGNIFICANT to their degree.-But the professors with the lowest ratings on need to be let go.-When it comes to winter storms, announcements of delays and/or closures need to be made before midnight. Especially if they are dangerous. Because there are students who live FAR from the campus, tend wake up early, and travel to school through buses. If a storm is too dangerous, just cancel the day altogether rather than just opening late or closing early. Safety comes first.-There is no need for textbooks to be overpriced. And professors should not be allowed to say "Buy the textbook", and then it never gets used for the majority of the semester.-Geese droppings would need to be picked up from the ground.-Some of the professors, (ESPECIALLY GENERAL ED) really need to relax with the amount of work they are assigning. There are students who are taking 2-5 classes per semester. The professors would assign something heavy for a crazy due date while the students have other classes to do work for, not to mention, students have other obligations in their lives.-The absence maximum needs to be fair. Because some students would have other obligations, and possible crises going on in their lives.Again, this is a decent school. There are helpful resources. But there are certain dilemmas that really need to be taken into consideration for the students who is spending their time, money and energy to attend courses in Westchester Community College.

Love the bookstore! I arrived during limited hours over spring break (thinking they had the regular hours) and Karla was intrepid in helping me get the book I needed for class. Her thinking outside the box (see: outside spring break store hours) is greatly appreciated.
