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 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 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 educational institutions.

Amazing, inexpensive education. The teachers really seem to love their subjects and have a passion for making every student understand them to the best of their ability. The willingness to help individual students to such extents is practically unheard of for college. TCCC is flat out amazing!

What a privilege to comment on the impact of Tri-County Community College. At Christian Love Ministries we have been able to help 1000's of men and women in their efforts to recover from addiction. Many of our students chose to continue their education once "the fog" lifts. Over the years some of our students have decided to earn their GED, while others have enrolled as full-time students. This college is full of wonderful, dedicated teachers and staff. We are grateful to have TCCC in our "backyard!"
