NMCC College Success Rate Climbs Higher
The percentage of graduates from Northern Maine Community College who are employed, continuing their education or both is on the rise.
According to the 2015 Graduate Survey Report taken 6 months after graduation, 83% are employed and that number jumps to 97% when you add those who are continuing their education. This is the highest percentage ever achieved by NMCC.
“Our success rate had been holding steady at 93% for a number of years and that was a remarkable accomplishment,” said NMCC President Tim Crowley.
Ninety-one percent of the employed graduates are working in the State of Maine and 69% are working in Aroostook County. Those numbers are the same as the year before. 66% of the graduates are working in their chosen field; and their average salary is $34,585. That’s an average of $2,675 dollars more than was reported the year before.
The results are even more significant when compared to the 2012 survey. At that time, 90% of the graduates were employed, continuing their education or both 6 months after graduation and 63% of the graduates were working their field.
