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 an extensive 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 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.

It’s an update from my last review at Wake Tech. I was complaining that it takes longer to get an associates degree but it’s worth the time. Most state schools in NC accept your credits. Even, I’ve applied to an out of state school and they said all my credits would transfer. However, it contradicts what one advisor said. I advise to contact the people whatever school for transferring because they will recommend the correct courses to take. Wake tech is really good! It’s a shame to see reviews as just admissions process and instead of reviewing the college as a whole. The professors are great. There is a math and English center to help you if you struggle in these types of courses, it’s called the ILC. This is a great institution. It’s a shame to see the complaints down below. Contact them by email and visit them in person they are responsive.

I turned in all the documents they requested back in July, and still to this day Jan 5th, my documents are “pending approval” Ive spoken to so many people in the financial aid office and everyone tells me something completely different! Its not fair to me that because they ARENT DOING THERE JOB , that I have to sit out a whole year! The Finanicial aid office workers are lazy and dont care about you at all.

Not the best experience. I went to wake tech as a part of the CCP program aka for high school students. It’s great you can get credits in high school already and it’s free but the process is AWFUL. They try to make it as complicated as possible and very confusing. Wake tech is very unorganized and not very good at communicating.The staff is also super rude and not understanding. Be prepared.

The admissions process is the worst for people that are transfer students. They tried to make me take a placement test even though I had already took one a few years ago. I spoke to a lady who was soft spoke but very non-chalant and didn't care to resolve my issue. Save your money and go to another school!!

Overall Rating:

The vast majority of my instructors were great. They knew their subject and loved teaching. I really had a great time going back to school and I'm now at my dream job which I found at a career fair on campus while in my last semester. Almost all my coworkers went to for-profit trade schools that cost about 7 times what my classes did, for probably the same quality of education. If you're focused and motivated, the instructors will help you compete in your career field. But . . I've had constant issues with the administrators from start to finish. The counselors and Veteran Services office are the most worthless people to deal with. They were definitely an obstacle to my career. The instructors were amazing but you could replace the whole administration with an app. My friend whom had transferred to NCSU said it would've taken him an extra year if he had followed the counselor's advice. So take em with a grain of salt and do your due diligence when mapping out your goals. Update: I’m recently having to deal with payment issues with my GI Bill because of the inept Veteran Services office, a year after I graduated! To re-iterate: the school's VA office are a detriment to the veterans who attend this school. They have never been helpful during my time at Wake Tech. That entire school's administration is a tax burden and an obstacle to student's futures. Good luck to you if you attend, but it's going to be an uphill battle against this school's stagnant bureaucracy.
