Graduation Rate

Loading...
18%
BELOW AVERAGE

Walters State Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

18% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Walters State 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 indicator 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 institutions.

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

The best decision of my life. You will get out of this institution what you put into it. If you expect somebody else to pay for, work for, or think for you to excel here, you will fail. But if you put forth the time, money, and thought to succeed, it is the best place you could ever choose. The faculty love their jobs, the environment is friendly to all trends of thought, and the opportunities are far above what would be expected of a two year school.

I love it! I would highly recommend this school I have done campus and online classes and both were pretty good student wise. Walters State gives many opportunities for the student and community with classes, clubs, special events, speakers and tutoring etc. Clubs are also a great thing to be involved in with community service opportunities and to serve the community along with the school.
