Graduation Rate

Loading...
24%
BELOW AVERAGE

Truckee Meadows Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

24% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Truckee Meadows 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 an extensive 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.

Wonderful school to work and take classes at.

I took a Medical Assistant class here at the campus in downtown Reno in 2015. I have been unable to secure employment because my certification is from NHA and not CCMA.I wasted my time and money becoming certified at this college. This will not be the last time this college here's from me. What a terrible injustice to the other folks who are going through the same thing.I fully intend to make this school responsible and accountable for this fact. It is greivously unfair and incomprahensible that taking a class in a program that is designed to bring employment to individuals who suited up n showed up for this training, to not even been told that this may happen.Truckee Meadows Community College misrepresented their school when they trained people for a vocation that potentially they could not use in any way to provide economic security.I will hold you responsible. Thank you for absolutely lying to your students, and misguiding them into a false belief that after training g in this area, they would be accepted Nationally, or at least in the neighboring State of California.Our class teacher Lavonne Black, also miss lead her students. This is the worst mistake of my life. No thanks to this entity and the so called professionals that run it.Thanks for absolutely nothing. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.Good day..

I have been a student at this school a few times over the years and I am friends with a number of professors; I studied art, anthropology and fire science at this school as well as getting all of my core classes complete there so I could transfer as a junior. That said; this college has definitely taken a turn for the worst. It appears under the guise of trying to create higher standards to would improve completion rates they have taken on policies that are discriminatory. Their policies in grading, classes offered, completion rates and raises in tuition primarily effect those of a the lower social economic strata and those with learning disabilities, those who have to work. those who have a long way to go before they are ready for college/university education.When I first attended TMCC I needed the extra help because I did not finish high school or have good study habits while I was in high school. I had to take a lot of the non-transferable classes, some more than once because of poor decisions made in high school. If It was not for TMCC I would not be where I am today. I met some wonderful professors there that mentored me in my education and with a lot of hard work I made it. But now classes that are not transferable, remedial classes such as 090, 095 have a negative effect on your GPA which effects transfers and count towards your credit limit for financial aid but you cannot get financial aid for them. The math department is horrible, I had a professor that was teaching stuff that you should not see until 120/126 in 095 and when I realized it and said something the response I got was "well you will do better in the high level math classes now". That is like telling someone to train to hike Mt. Peavine by climbing Mt. Everest. Some of the professors I know are highly demoralized and many of the best have moved on to teach at different schools. That said I would like for TMCC to go back to being a college for the community- everyone in the community.I did sent a few emails to different departments around the school and talked to them and received no response.

Very helpful and responsive staff! I was very pleasantly suprised when Amanda from the Financial Aid office called to give me a heads up on some incomplete paperwork. I'm incredibly grateful and relieved.

As far as community colleges go, this one is a great choice for anybody trying to save a few bucks. The majority of the instructors really care about the students and how they do. There are a few bad eggs but you get that anywhere you go. They offer a wide variety of classes, programs, certificates, and degrees so if you're just wanting to improve your photography skills or if you're trying to get a degree they probably have something for you. The schedules have a good variation in times and days so those of us who work and go to school can still have at least one day off. All in all, I've actually been vary impressed with my experiences with this school so far. (5 semesters in.)
