Student Achievement and Success Disclosures Data
In accordance with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Standard 8.1 (Core Requirement), which states, “The institution identifies, evaluates, and publishes goals and outcomes for student achievement appropriate to the institution’s mission.”
ESCC has identified four (4) student achievement goals, baseline data, and targets for student achievement and success. Data and established targets are also published on the College Website and is in alignment with the College’s mission of “to improve our communities by providing students with excellent opportunities to further their education and enter the workforce.”
The four (4) student success goals are:
Fall Enrollment – ESCC has added several new programs to meet market demand. This, combined with a renewed focus on recruiting, has led to a goal of increasing fall enrollment each fall, year over year.
Fall To Fall Retention – ESCC finds itself just below the average in retention rate compared to the other colleges in the Alabama Community College System. A goal has been set to raise retention to 58% by the 2020-21 academic year.
Completion Rate in Developmental Courses – ESCC has invested significant resources to create a new counseling and tutoring center. This center is available for all students, however success advisors have been hired to focus on at risk students. A goal has been set to raise the developmental course completion rate to 65% by the 2020-21 academic year.
3 – Year Graduation Rates – A goal has been set to maintain 20% success over a 3-year period of First Time in College (FTIC) students. New short-term certificates were developed in 2016-17 to provide stackable credentials and improve retention to completion efforts.
