College of Marin's College Credit Program (CCP) gives high school students the opportunity to take COM classes for college credit.
Some characteristics of College of Marin’s credit student population have changed.
The College has a set of institutional standards, thresholds below which we will not drop without investigating the reasons and taking action to improve. One of those standards is the fall-to-spring persistence of our new students.
One of COM’s strategic planning objectives is to decrease time-to-degree.
The most recent California Community College Chancellor’s Office Student Success Scorecard includes a new metric, “Skills Builder.”
In the 2014-15 academic year, COM enrolled 13,199 students.
Successful course completion is key to earning a certificate or degree.
Approximately one-fifth of students enrolled for credit at the College have already earned a bachelor’s degree.
Ever wonder how many Marin County students enroll directly to COM after graduating from high school?
Reducing the time it takes for students to earn their degree is one of COM's strategic plan goals.
All California Community Colleges are receiving additional funding to improve student success. Also, to assure equitable progress by gender, race/ethnicity, income, disability, foster youth and veteran status. To be considered inequitable progress, a group’s success rate must be 80 percent or less of the highest achieving group’s rate. At COM, African American and Hispanic students are less likely to make progress on several of the 8 metrics.
The California Community College Chancellor’s Office produces the Student Success Scorecard each year to show student progress at each college and for all colleges combined. Each of the metrics tracks students across 6 years, so the most recent results are based on the cohort that entered in 2008-09.
