Student Right-To-Know (Completion Rates)
In compliance with the Student Right-To-Know (SRTK) Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), Golden West College makes available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.
These rates are based on a limited cohort (or group) of students which are tracked for a three-year period. The cohort is limited, because it includes only students who entered Golden West College in the fall term as first-time, full-time students seeking a degree, certificate or transfer.
Students included in the 2013 SRTK Cohort were tracked from Fall 2013 through Spring 2016 to determine their academic outcomes during the time period.
Transfer Rate: A student is included in the Transfer Rate if, within the three-year tracking period, they transferred to another postsecondary institution prior to receiving a certificate or degree or becoming “transfer-prepared”.
The table below compares Golden West College’s Completion and Transfer Rates to the statewide community college average.
|Overall Graduation Rate||Rate|
|American Indian or Alaskan Native||0%|
|Black or African American||24%|
|Hispanic or Latino||32%|
|Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander||10%|
|Two or more races||30%|
These rates do not represent the completion and transfer rates of the entire student population at Golden West College, nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period.
For more information on SRTK methodology, interpretation, and rates at other community colleges, you can visit the California Community College Chancellor’s Office website, http://srtk.cccco.edu/index.asp
An important focus of the grant is to draw on the expertise and innovation from within the CCC system, in order to advance best practice and help individual colleges avoid potential pitfalls.
There are three major components of the initiative:
1. Develop a framework of indicators and college/district goals (SB 852 and SB 860).
2. Make Technical Assistance Teams (called Partnership Resource Teams) available to colleges who express interest in receiving assistance.
3. Enhance professional development opportunities for colleges related to institutional effectiveness.
