Overview of Clinton College
Despite this, Clinton College does offer campus housing to its students. Given the small campus size, when you find out that the student population is all of 190 students, you may be surprised and a little relieved. At least you know that you won’t disappear in a large number of students. The small student body also allows the school to maintain a student-to-faculty ratio of 11 to 1, which is quite good. The entire student body is made up of undergraduate students; this includes those taking their associate-level degree programs and those taking their bachelor’s degree programs.
CC is a private, not-for-profit college set in a small city. Rock Hill, South Carolina is small enough that you’ll easily be able to familiarize yourself with stores, restaurants, and places you can just get away and relax. Clinton College is affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, where you may decide to attend services.

Two degree programs at CC are the most popular across the campus: Business, Management, Marketing and Related Support Services; and Philosophy and Religious Studies. Due to the size of the student population, not very many degree programs are offered.
If for some reason, you find that one of your semester’s classes is in direct conflict with your off-campus job or another responsibility, you may be able to shift it. If you ask your advisor about the issue, you’ll find that CC does offer evening classes and you may be able to use these for flexibility if they are offering another section in the evening. However, online (distance) learning isn’t offered, so every student must attend classes on-campus.
The retention rate, which is the percentage of first-year students who return to the campus for their second year as students is 60% at CC. The 4-year graduation rate is low at 13%, but the 6-year graduation rate nearly doubles to 24%. However, those students who do not graduate here usually transfer to another school instead. The overall graduation and transfer out rate is 76%, so you can expect to gain a foundation that will allow you to attend and graduate from another school of your choosing.
