In California, students at private colleges graduate more often
Posted October 25, 2012on:
The study was performed by The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C., and compared students in short-term programs and community colleges with students enrolled in similar programs at private, for-profit schools like Everest College. They found that 20.4 percent of students at nonprofit community colleges were able to complete their courses on time, while more than 60 percent of those at for-profit schools did.
When students had more time, more of them finished, with nonprofit schools rising to around 25 percent and private colleges to 65 percent—still a big gap.
Why such a difference? If you ask us, we’d give huge credit to our small class sizes, hands-on learning environment and instructors who work to give the personal support you need to succeed.
