Graduation Rate

Loading...
38%
BELOW AVERAGE

York College graduation rate is below the national average.

38% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to York 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 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 educational institutions.

Excellent school. The quality of education is great. Some of the science classes are hard tho, but it forces you to learn. LIRR stop 3 blocks away from the main campus as well as the other busses.

I’m a freshman at York and I’ve had nothing but luck with my professors. My classes got dropped and I didn’t realize so I was stuck with professors that I didn’t know during the evening. It was so frustrating because I was new and I knew nothing. Fortunately, I was able to have great teachers. Professor Papa, Dr. Gutikule, Dr. Rodgers and even in my second semester I have met the greatest professors. They all have their downside but they still push you to the greatest. They motivate you and make you think about what you’re aiming for. I really feel that the school is going to get a lot better. I think it’s what you make out of it.There is always an event here, always offering snacks, emails from everywhere and the professors show you opportunities that are out there for you.Three stars because I just began and I do not know what I’ll come up across Pros: great professors Understanding Very United Furniture A bunch of clubs Programs Cons: New makeover to the school More security in the area because if there’s more security students can feel much safer and not only base the College because of the area Some members have attitude but everyone has that in every school. There’s always those people you cannot avoid.

Overall Rating:

I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about York. I have a 40 year history with the school dating back to the 1970's when I was just starting out. There was no campus at that time, classes were held in rented spaces in South Jamaica. That really didn't matter because what separated York from all the other CUNY schools was the people. I met some amazing friends and was taught by people who changed my life. I recently graduated with a second degree from York after having a wonderful career as a NYC teacher. The school looks a lot different now with a big beautiful campus, where once stood vacant lots. One thing hasn't changed though - There are some of the nicest young men and women and some of the best teachers I have ever encountered at York College..
