High School to Community College Transition

Success Factors at the community college level, are the policies, procedures, and principles proven to be most effective in helping all students successfully reach their goals and move on to the next level of education or job. This framework summarizes these success factors applied across the country that have proven success.

You can use this framework to analyze whether or not or how effectively success factors are applied in your community college, and use this information for continued improvement in building greater success for all students.

The framework is made up of five themes and three levels within the college. This is meant as a diagnostic tool to help you identify strengths and weaknesses by using a series of rubrics, audit questions, and honest conversation with one another. Did you find a theme or two that clearly identifies where you need to start working for improvement? Now you should have a clear roadmap identifying where you should begin and how your time should be spent to reach your improvement goals.
