Institutional Set Standards

2020-21 CCC Institutional Set-Standards (ISS) and Aspirational Goals

Institutional Set-Standards are an accreditation requirement (Standard I.B.3) that states: “The institution establishes institution-set standards for student achievement, appropriate to its mission, assesses how well it is achieving them in pursuit of continuous improvement and publishes this information.” ACCJC requires that the college have floor and aspirational goals for course completion, transfer to a four-year institution, degree completion, and certificate completion. The college reports on the progress toward these goals in the Annual Report to ACCJC as well as in Institutional Self-Evaluation Reports and the Midterm Report.

The CCC Institutional Set-Standards and Aspirational goals report includes the current floor and aspirational goals for course completion, transfer to a four-year institution, degree attainment, and certificate achievement. The report also includes historical data and information about the college’s local Vision for Success goals. The Institutional Effectiveness Advisory and the Student Success and Equity Committee will review and update on an annual basis.
