Facts & Figures: Student Achievement

Student Achievement

In accordance with Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges’ policy on Institutional Obligations for Public Disclosure, TCC publishes performance indicators for student achievement and the success of students achieving those measures. In order to prepare students for success in a global economy, TCC employs a number of measures to track students’ success systematically from the beginning of their academic career to their graduation and job placement. TCC tracks four measures of student achievement, including student retention rates, graduation rates, transfer rates of Associate in Arts graduates to the state university system, job placement rates, and licensure and certification pass rates. The College will provide annual updates of these student achievement measures, thereby demonstrating its commitment to student success and accountability to the public.
