Sierra Community College
Student Right-to-Know Rates for Fall 2016 Cohort
Completion Rate: 39.59 %
Transfer Rate: 11.62 %
In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of
1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of our college district to make
available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective
students. Beginning in Fall 2016, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-,
and transfer-seeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a
three year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed above.
These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student
population at the College nor do they account for student outcomes
occurring after this three year tracking period.
