Graduation Rate

Loading...
22%
BELOW AVERAGE

Trinity Valley Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

22% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Trinity Valley 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 index doesn’t consider 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.

I have been attending TVCC since the Summer of 2017. The first issue I had was an advisor putting me in the wrong classes for my degree plan. Luckily another advisor got me on the right course and she was absolutely great and the only one I would go to. Unfortunately the beginning of this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I tried finishing my classes but the chemo was pretty rough so I ended up having to drop. I went and talked to the financial aid office but was only given basic information when I told them I was having some medical issues. Granted I should have been more open about what was going on with me but it was still new to me and I didn't want to blurt out what was going on to everyone within earshot as I had not started losing my hair yet. Summer comes around and I wanted to start back since the new chemo I was on wasn't that bad. Well after I enrolled and was told my financial aid was approved and processed I got a letter stating that I owed money to the school and would be dropped from the class because of this balance. Several people told me this was the practice and that the balance would have to be paid before I could attend. THIS DIDN'T HAPPEN! I wasn't dropped and it was paid for by Fasfa. So now I owe money and have an F on my transcript. I had a 3.46 GPA before all of this. I did receive a scholarship to pay for the first balance which Dr. Kinzer worked to get me and I greatly appreciate it. The first instance I will take some blame for but the second one is not my fault! I'm fighting for my life right now and shouldn't have to be worried about all of this. Tvcc has some good people but it is a mess and it doesn't feel like everyone is there for the students. If you go to TVCC you better know everything about financial aid or contact Fasfa to find out there guidelines for sickness and emergency situations.

Tonight I am absolutely disappointed in the tvcc staff or whoever is in charge of the graduation process. THEY HELD THE GRADUATION IN THE GYM!! And if they fill up they shut the doors and you have to sit in the lobby to hear everything you can’t stand and watch at the door unless you fight past the crowd of people trying to watch also. This is college graduation not high school!!! They need to invest into a huge auditorium or a bigger gym I’m pretty sure Mabank high schools gym is bigger than this college gym how ridiculous. It’s very sad those parents or brothers and sister and these family members aren’t allowed to watch their loved one walk across the stage for one of the biggest achievements of their life because TVCC can’t step it up or get their organization together. I hope when you read this and it makes you sad just like I am and the rest of those parents are feeling. This was absolutely terrible.

Really nice staff, but are so behind on financial aid it's ridiculous. They're down 3 people which is like 50 percent of where they're supposed to be and it's dragging out the loan process till halfway through the semester. Also, cengage and their new system that replaced blackboard are terrible. The quality and accessibility of this place has gone down hill.

Overall Rating:

They have a great IT department that has a wonderful work study program. I've learned so much attending school here. All of my credits are going to transfer to UTD next semester. I am extremely happy with what I have gained by going here. I would give a five star buuuuut the financial aid staff can be very rude!
