Student Achievement Data

As required by membership in the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC), the College annually publishes Student Achievement Data.

Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) measures student achievement through multiple performance measures. The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG identifies key performance indicators for each of its 22 technical colleges to evaluate and publish annually. These key performance indicators show evidence of student success as defined by full-time equivalent enrollment, retention, graduation rates (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System definition), and placement rate (in field).
