    Graduation Rate

    74%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    The Creative Center graduation rate is above the national average.

    74% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to The Creative Center 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 index 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 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.

      I took a tour of this school and while the school wasn’t what I was looking for, all of the staff was nice and the program sounded like an amazing opportunity... if you wanted to go into graphic design. However, if you are looking to major in an art field that is something other than graphic design, look for another school. I don’t say this out of malice, it is simply a fact. This is strictly a graphic design school. I feel like they don’t advertise this clearly enough.
