Loading...
43%
BELOW AVERAGE

Wichita Area Technical College graduation rate is below the national average.

43% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Wichita Area Technical 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 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.

Financial aid is a joke at this school. They all need to learn how to do their job. So glad I left this school in the dust.

I was a student my senior year. Had a good time in the Aviation Manufacturing program. I am wanting to get into the A & P classes, but I call the financial aid center almost daily now and get no answer and never a call back. This has been going on for a straight month. It's like they don't want you to go there cause they won't ever answer the phone. Lazy

Overall Rating:

Difficult nursing program. But it's like any other nursing program. You get from it what you put into it. I put all I could into it and came out victorious! Killed the nclex and went straight into nursing like a boss. Yes, the teachers killed my vibe sometimes but only because they wanted us to do better.
