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 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 picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Wish I could give it zero stars. Staff and teachers at this school ruined it for me. They were no help at all and overly disrespectful.

Overall Rating:

Really great to have a college like this so close to where I live, really nothing to complain about, I don't feel like I'm compromising even though tuition is cheap.

Overall Rating:

People say it's like "13th grade" but if you give it a chance and get involved it's a great place to meet people and make friends. Make sure the classes you take will transfer to the 4 year school you want and know that these courses are pretty easy compared to that in other colleges. I've heard of people not expecting new paltz to be harder and fall behind or can't handle the workload.

Non stop harassment from security about being 30 mins early for class.

Peaceful environment, helpful teachers! A lot of newer students complain that they are not handed information or being informed of certain aspects of their semester. I felt this way at first until I realized... this is college! It takes a lot of work and effort to keep up with emails, the portal, etc. You have to really bust your ass to make sure you have all your paper work in and take the time to make calls. Although it may seem like it takes forever, financial aid is processed and you are able to access the portal to seek important news and advisor information. I believe this is a great starter school to begin your college career. Good luck!
