That's even after those who took three years to earn a diploma were factored in. At Monroe Community College, only about 11% of students earn diplomas after two years of study. That climbs to 24% after three years. MCC President Anne Kress talked about this, as well as the upcoming school year, during this week's Need to Know Rochester.
