Average age 25.7 years Academic Year 2012-2013 National Community College Dashboard Academic Year 2012-2013 With comparatively low tuition, enrollment has steadily increased, but completion rates are still below the national average.

Community college students are most at-risk, given that 60% work more than 20 hours a week - as compared to 45% at four-year schools. What Can We Do ? Dual Credit High School Students Community colleges play a pivotal role in the pipeline from high school to two- and four-year institutions as well as the workforce. Open House Back to basics -

Host Open House nights for students/parents, working community, and education advocates.

Open houses provide topics on how to enroll, degree programs offered, student life, transfer options, and resources available to students both while they are enrolled and after they graduate.

In conjunction with an open house, recruit throughout the community through city, county, and government offices. Orientation programs can provide students with vital information that is important for their academic socialization.

Completing an orientation course (during the first semester of enrollment) improved retention rates regardless of the gender, race, major, age, or employment status of the students.

Research has shown that first-year retention rates can increase up to 84% - ASU -for those students that attend orientation their first semester of enrollment. Linda Brown, an African American child, had to walk to six blocks for her school bus because her school was a mile away. However, there was an elementary school that was seven blocks away from her house. When her father tried to enrolled her to the school that was closes to home for her, the school had rejected her and directed her to a segregated school.

In 1951, thirteen plaintiffs, whose children were in the same situation as Linda, had filed a class action suit against the Board of Education of the City of Topeka, Kansas. Oliver L Brown, Linda Brown, was on of the plaintiffs. Sadly, the District Court had favored the Board of Education because it had upheld the state
law requirements "separate but equal". Learning Communities Students take courses together, study together, and encourage together.

At Seattle Central Community College, students in the Coordinated Studies Program were retained at a rate approximately 25% higher than students enrolled in traditional curriculum.

Academic integration is an extremely important form of involvement, especially for students enrolled at two-year institutions. Retention is a result of a combination of circumstances, student
characteristics, and the institutional environment.

DACC recognizes that we have a diverse group of students.
We must also recognize that not all student's objectives are
the same. This is how we better ourselves in working toward
student success. Working individually and collaboratively to develop challenging curricula that are academically strong and provide the tools students will need to be successful in their lives. Accessibility and availability of instructors is a critical factor in student success. Achieving The Dream Achieving the Dream is based on the premise that to improve student success on a substantial scale, colleges must fundamentally change the way they operate.

It means improved skills, better employability, and economic growth for communities and our nation as a whole.

Community college administrators need to recognize the value
of data-driven decision making and to provide the tools to help
us analyze student outcomes. Want More! There were colleges that allowed women education, but women wanted the right to be allowed to go to prestigious universities like Harvard or Yale. The Civil War had left a lot of widows who needed education in order to support themselves and their children, which many colleges came and provided. However, Harvard didn't give equal access until 1975. Student Support Services Hoorah For Women's Education! In my opinion I believe it's a good thing that are allowed to have education because there are many single moms out there (from one reason or another) who needs to provide for their children. The only way for the moms to do that nowadays is by education.

Also, even if there are women out there who aren't moms, it's a way to help them to live on their own. To be able to support yourself, you need a job. To have a good job, you need an education. Career profiles give potential students a glimpse of what life might be like.

Provide detailed information about each job, including images of people working in that capacity, salary information and details that point out the benefits of working in that field.

Use your alumni to your advantage by showcasing particularly successful former students. Contact alumni who have made a name for themselves and ask that they lend their faces to your enrollment efforts “Action is the foundational key to all success.”
– Pablo Picasso By Lisa Maynez Alumni Career Profiles Without community colleges, millions of students and adult learners would not be able to access the education they need to be prepared for further education or the workplace. Representation of Community College Students Among Undergraduates (Fall 2012) - AACC
Dual credit students have a higher college participation rate than high school graduates overall. Provides a seamless pathway for high school students to move between their
high school and DACC. Dual enrollment promotes greater collaboration between the institutions. First Year Orientation Faculty and Staff Advising students on their career goals and the consequences of the choices they make. Community colleges are a vital component in returning the U.S. to its place as a global leader in higher education degree attainment, however, fewer than half of all students who enter community college with the goal of earning a certificate or degree have met their goal six years later. - Achieving the Dream Financial Literacy Career Planning Tutoring Student Activities Academic/Personal Advising Final Thoughts Institution Headcount in Credit Programs 8 million
