Student Achievement Goals, Outcomes, and Data

Southeastern Community College is part of the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS). The NCCCS has seven system-wide outcomes. Each year the system prepares the Performance Measures for Student Success Report which provides an analysis of each college’s student success data. SCC has adopted the seven system-wide outcomes (listed below) and the college’s goal is to be at least above the average college percentage for each student achievement goal. The seven outcomes are:

  1. To ensure individuals with low literacy skills are progressing academically toward credential or employment (Basic Skills Student Progress).
  2. To ensure students are successfully completing a credit-bearing English course within their first three academic years (Student Success Rate in College-Level English Courses).
  3. To ensure students are successfully completing credit-bearing math courses within their first three academic years (Student Success Rate in College-Level Math Courses).
  4. To ensure first-year students are making progress toward credential completion (First Year Progression).
  5. To ensure student completion and/or persistence toward a post-secondary credential in a timely manner (Curriculum Completion).
  6. To ensure programmatic coursework prepares students to competently practice in their chosen profession (Licensure and Certification Passing Rate).
  7. To ensure the academic success of community college students at a four-year university or college (College Transfer Performance). A summary of SCC’s performance in the 2020 report is described in the table below:
