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 consideration 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.

If u have a problem you might as well quit while ur ahead. Staff will not resolve the issue & u basically have to catch on fire to talk to the president! If u want to know why the graduation rate is 17% come on over & waste your money if you have time & you will soon find out.

Pretty disappointed in the lack of communication and care in students continued education. I was willing to drive over an hour to attend their LPN to RN Transitions program, but received zero communication when I applied and sent required documents. After reaching out, 4 weeks later I finally speak to someone and the excuse was that it was fall registration and they had been swamped. Ok, no big deal. I drive the distance to speak to someone in admissions and get the answers I need only to end up needing to speak with the Nursing Director who is absolutely unreachable by phone or email. I've been trying to reach Becky Strickland, LONG before I even applied, with zero response. Gladly taking my continued education elsewhere. A school that has little interest in getting you in will have little interest in seeing you and helping you succeed.

Wilson Community College offers free classes through the Wilson Small Business Center (SBC). The classes are a great way to jump start your small business if you are a budding entrepreneur with a great idea or even a small seasoned business owner. The classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursday in the evening free of charge. There is a wide range of classes from "How to Write a Business Plan for Your Small Business" to "Making Your Small Business Magical" to "Social Media in Business."Small Business Center Director, Melissa Evans is always available for questions and guidance. She is wonderful. You can schedule counselling with her too. The Small Business Center is a great resource for the community and I repeat, all classes are free of charge. The SBC website is user friendly and easy to navigate. You can register for classes online.

The worst school around. The trade instructors are good. The rest of them are below average at best. But the people who run the offices are incompetent and rude. They will be bad at there job and if and when they make a mistake that directly effects you in a negative way. They don't take responsibility for there mistake. Instead when you ask them about it or try to show them the mistake the treat you rude and act like you are lying to them and treat you like you are the dumbest person on the planet. I would strongly suggest going else where for your education.
