Graduation Rate

Loading...
15%
BELOW AVERAGE

Wake Technical Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

15% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wake Technical 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 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.

This school is owned and operated by the good ol' boys of North Carolina, the institution does not care about the students, soley their profits. It actually does not deserve any stars. My first semester a teacher gave me a 98, only listed positive feedback, when asked why she deducted points she stated she never intended on giving anyone a 100. This has been the consistent tone of most interactions faculty and staff. Many of them are racists, cannot interact with students of color as they do their own, I have observed this throughout my three years here. They do not expect for students to advocate for themselves, which is why many of them behave the way they do. Furthermore, the schools in NC have colluded to make it difficult for students who have ALREADY earned bachelors in fields that are beyond their small scope to earn additional degrees. For example, I was told by John Bakken that the school will not transfer courses that are within an area of study if they are too specific. In other words, because the classes I took are beyond the scope of what Wake Tech is capable of teaching I would have to take entry level classes. But in the beginning showed how much he lacked respect for me by not even having the professional decency to shake my hand when we met, he definitely exudes the energy of someone who does not socialize with people different from himself. These decisions were obviously made to guarantee income from students who want to continue their education. If this is not indicative of snake like behavior, I do not know what is. I realize this is an affordable option for most, but if you can avoid it do not give this institution your money or time.

Overall Rating:

4/5 stars for the professors at Wake Tech, they are all so intelligent and helpful! 1/5 stars for the other faculty and staff. Every time I communicate with the staff at Wake Tech, they speak to me in such a disrespectful tone, like I am the dumbest person on earth. They will go to no efforts to help you or answer any of your questions. And they always look so sad, like they hate their job. Never seen anything like it before.

I had the best experience last semester. I am a non-traditional student going back to school after a long duration away from academics. Wake Tech staff are so carring about my needs and struggles. I felt so encouraged to not give up on myself even when learning to use devices and media made it very hard at times. I am starting my second semester next week and am very excited to continue working with this wonderful staff and facility. I know I will have an even greater experience. Thank you all so very much. Sincerely, Sherri LaVerdiere

Overall Rating:

It’s okay. The professors are amazing. There’s not many food options on this campus. The thing I’m not happy about is that it can take a student longer than 2 years to transfer. I’m going for an associates degree because once you transfer to an in state or out of state, the credits will transfer. Students will be able to work in the backbone in their major instead of the grunt work courses (GEN ED.) Students looking to go to the Wake Tech should get a tour first before deciding to come here. This is a really great community college! Study for the placement exam or else you will be placed in classes that you don’t need to take. It happened to me! The social life is okay, there is minimal clubs.. If Wake tech had a faster option available, to complete all courses to transfer, I would give it 5 stars!
