2022 - 2027 MCC Strategic Plan

Student Achievement

In accordance with SACSOC Standard 8.1, institutions are expected to demonstrate their success with respect to student achievement and indicate the criteria and thresholds of acceptability used to determine that success. Martin Community College has identified multiple measures to document students achievement including the NCCCS Performance Measures, the National Student Clearinghouse Total Completion Rate, and the IPEDS 150% Completion Rate.

NCCCS Performance Measures

The Performance Measures for Student Success Report is the North Carolina Community College System’s major accountability document and Martin Community College's primary measure of student success and achievement. This annual performance report is based on data compiled during the previous year and serves to inform colleges and the public on the performance of our 58 community colleges.

Martin Community College's results and the current and past NCCCS Performance Measures for Student Success reports are available for download in PDF format below (Adobe Reader required). MCC has adopted the system excellence level as the college’s target and the baseline as the college’s threshold for each of the Performance Measures.

National Student Clearinghouse Total Completion Rate

In 2018, MCC chose the National Student Clearinghouse Total Completion Rate as it's SACSCOC Completion Indicator.

A fall-term cohort is defined as first-time degree seeking students who began their postsecondary studies in the fall term of the cohort year. The NSC excludes dually enrolled students as first time students; students participating in dual enrollment are counted as first-time after graduating high school and entering a college or university as a non-dually enrolled student. Students are followed through six academic years; the NSC provides information on credential attainment and persistence (continuing enrollment).

IPEDS Completion Rate

MCC also looks at the IPEDS 150% Completion Rate as a measure of student success.

The IPEDS Completion Rate measures the first-time, full-time degree or certificate seeking students, excluding dual enrolled students, in a fall cohort who complete their program within a time period equal to one and a half times (150%) the normal period of time. A typical time to completion for an associate degree is two years.
