Guttman Community College continues to graduate students at a rate significantly above the national average for comparable two-year urban public colleges.
As of August 23, 2017, Guttman Community College has conferred 228 associate degrees for the 2016-2017 academic year. Overall, 612 students have now graduated from Guttman Community College to continue their studies or embark on careers.
Both the two- and three-year graduation rates continue to track well above the national averages. After two years, 31% or 137 students from the 2015 cohort have graduated, a metric significantly higher than the two-year national graduation rate at two-year urban public colleges (6%, IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey 2015).
After three years, 46% or 190 students from the College’s 2014 entering class have graduated (46%), triple the three-year national graduation rate at two-year urban public colleges (16%, IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey 2015).
As the College marks its fifth anniversary in fall 2017, it is successfully fulfilling its mission to improve the outcomes of a largely low-income and first generation student population that has been underserved by higher education.
