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 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 educational institutions.

The staff is so unhelpful. I dread speaking with anyone in the financial aid office. As a first time student registering for classes, the counselor told me that I was making her job difficult because I had to consider childcare hours while choosing classes.

Why does there need to be security in the cafeteria all the time ? That says more than enough about the students they want at Triton.

If i could i would give them NO STARS I went to orientation 5 years ago at Triton. They told us they would drop us if we didn't pay our tuition by the dead line. Well the people at the school lied and they have been collecting my tax returns. I wrote to the state and they wont help me either "who couldn't even spell my name right." I have called, emailed, wrote letters to the school for years to get this figured out. All they do is say oh this person can help and pass me back and forth to people getting nowhere. I am now seeking legal help to put an end to this. I shouldn't have to pay for class i never attend.
