      Student Achievement Facts

      In accordance with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, T.A.Lawson State Community College identifies, evaluates, and publishes goals and outcomes for student achievement appropriate to the institution’s mission, the nature of the students it serves, and the kinds of programs offered.  Lawson State utilizes IPEDS data and SACSCOC Annual Profile data as a metrix to monitor completion of students served by the College.

      The goals and outcomes that measure Student Achievement at the College are:

      1.      To meet or exceed the IPEDS Graduation / Completion Rate
      2.      To have a Completion / Graduation Rate that is no less than 10% of Peer Institutions
               (as measured by the SACSCOC Peer Group Rate)
      3.      Increase the Graduation / Completion Rate to 15%.
      4.      To achieve a 70% successful course completion rate annually.
      5.      To have a fall-to-fall retention rate of a minimum of 42%.
      6.      To have a transfer rate of a minimum of 55%.
      7.      To maintain a licensure rate of a minimum of 80%.
      8.    To have a job placement rate annually, no less than 10% below or at the state target level

      To assess these identified goals and outcomes, the College uses the following:  (1) IPEDS Completion Rates;  (2) SACSCOC Peer Group Graduate Rates; (3) Course Completion Rates; (4) Fall-to-Fall Retention Rates; (5) Transfer Rates; (6) NCLEX--Nursing Licensure Examination; and (7) Job Placement Results.  If results are not met, the College works through targeted Divisions and Departments to address critical shortfalls.  Indeed, results (for all) are published annually on the College's website (as provided below): 

      As noted, the institution uses multiple measures to document student success.  Student Achievement Goals, Benchmarks, and Outcomes are highlighted below.   For a more detailed report on Student Achievement, CLICK HERE.
