Graduation Rate


Surry Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

24% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Surry 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 schools.

I am a student at another college, and I needed two DMA courses, so I took them this summer with Surry because they were the only school around that offered them online, which works better for my schedule. The whole process from application, to registration, to completing both courses was a breeze. Everyone that I spoke to during the process was super friendly and very helpful, especially Janice Lowe and Melissa Atkinson - thank you both! :)

This college is great and affordable. The teachers I have had in the past do a great job teaching and are preparing me for my transfer to a 4 year university. SCC is the most logical step for a local education that will save money for future college debts.

This place is a joke. I have had so much trouble with them. They once sold me the wrong book and then would not take it back. Once I finished I payed for a degree and a certificate but they put them both in the same holder even though I payed $25 for each. I hate this place and hope no one makes the mistake of thinking this would be a good place to learn from.

It is a delightful campus. Well landscaped and nicely set off with trees. Safe places to talk between buildings. This was my first time teaching for the Small Business Center on campus and had a great time.
