Graduation Rate

Loading...
10%
BELOW AVERAGE

Tarrant County College District graduation rate is below the national average.

10% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Tarrant County College District 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 account 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 picture. 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.

Overall Rating:

I taught at Tarrant County College, Trinity River Campus from 2015-2018. While there were a few good students at TCC, many were the worst I have ever encountered on a college campus in my almost 20 years of teaching. The problem is the administration makes it known that their top priority is to "retain" students. No mention is made of preparing them for the workplace or for transferring to a four year school and finding academic success there. In fact, a in faculty meeting, which was focused exclusively on attracting and retaining students, I suggested improving the academic standards to better prepare the students for their academic training as most transfer to four year schools. I further suggested following students from TCC to see how they fare after they leave school. If they have better training and, hence, better grade averages and graduation rates at the four year college level, then we could advertise how TCC produces better results for their students. I was scoffed out of the room.I was later fired, in mid-semester, for offending the PC sensibilities of some Fort Worth ISD students who reported me to FW ISD Director of Advanced Studies, Brenda Carter. I was teaching two dual course courses in economics. I had the students read, as I have since the Fall of 2015, Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt's article in *The Atlantic,* "The Coddling of the American Mind." The authors question PC sensibilities on campus and argue for a robust free discussion of any relevant issues and perspectives in class. I use this discussion to prepare students for the rough and tumble of my classes that encourages open dialogue with each other, myself, and the theorists we study. I make extensive use most every class of the Socratic Method to stimulate thought and engage with the material we study. For this transgression, Ms. Carter demanded that I be removed immediately. I later found out that Ms. Carter demanded that I never be allowed to teach high school students from FW ISD ever again.The administrators at TCC wanted me out for this reason as well as my actually testing students in previous semesters for the ability to master the material & reason about what they had learned. When they show they have, they receive a good grade. When they do not, they receive the failing grade that they have earned. Before I came to TCC, I rarely failed any students. At TCC, I failed students who refused to come to class and to even take the tests. I was openly pressured by the departmental Chair, Alicia Lupinacci, to keep testing students until they passed or offer easier tests. That is highly unethical. She was told to make that demand by the administrators led Bryan Stewart.Dr. Lupinacci fired me after she openly complimented my teaching and had given me favorable evaluations in the past. She brought into my classroom another instructor during these attacks on me by Brenda Carter to judge my teaching. This woman, Meryl Cope, said that my class was "intense" and integrated material in a "brilliant" manner. But she said the students were not up to such demands as I placed on them during the class when I peppered them with questions. She thought the class should only deal with simple terms and the very basics of the subject without any historical context or any applications and contrasts and comparisons. Apparently, Ms. Cope was not aware we were in a college and not a public high school.So, if you want a real education that will prepare you for advanced courses at schools like TCU or SMU or UT or Texas A&M, this is not the school for you. If you want a diploma mill where you are not required to perform up to the standards of a major university, then this school would be a perfect fit for you. This college is not a college. This is a sieve run by and for the advancement of educational bureaucrats who care nothing for students and everything for shaking students down for $$$ in return for non-demanding classes so the administrators can move up the next level of colleges to increase their income and status.

How can a institution have bad review after bad review and still be functional. It makes me sick that this is what we subject our kids to and the expect them to be successful and great. Its sad that every single person I've talked to says exactly the same this school does not care about the student. To me even if a hand full of kids feel this way especially kids paying good money to get this treatment. Its no wonder we have elected Trump as our president. Schools like this its gonna be Paris Hilton running the country or past freaking Osbourne

As we look at schools for our children, I expect them to be taught the subjects that were chosen. If we choose an Astrology class then I darn sure don't want them to deal with being force fed religion from a nut job like Daniel Mashburn. Tell your professors to keep it on topic. This is getting just plain stupid everywhere we look when it comes to college. I wasn't informed that this was a religious institute. If that has changed then you really need to update your schools profile.
