Job Placement and Job Placement Rates for Graduates

The college does not advertise job placement rates as a means of recruiting students to enroll, thus they are not readily available. Visit NC TOWER, North Carolina's Tool for Online Workforce and Education Reporting, to view information about the workforce and educational outcomes of programs at North Carolina community colleges and public universities.
