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 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.

It is the worst experience I had so far with fake school and staff, be careful with these people. It is wise to stay away and never take a class. These people are spammers and are part of really bad people who are very pushy, sending you computers, call and finally get you to enroll. They give you good grades to keep you, steal your money, and you end up without a credit. When you talk to someone, you never know who this person is because when you call to ask for this person again, they tell you that this person does not exist. Next time when you call the number, it is disconnected and no longer in service. When you ask about your financial aid, they give you the difference three months after you finished their fake classes online, and steel your money from your student loan. When you tell them to pay the loan from the financial aid, instead they take money from the student loan and do not listen properly. It is a very shade business in this school, the best way is to never get involved with them, and they have people who call and ask you to re pay something you are not obligated to do because you were never enrolled in this school in the first place, you end up victim of scammers who are very well organized. My advice, stay away from this school.
