Salary & Wage Information

California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office is making available for the first time comparative information about the earnings of recent graduates who received an award in a specific program area at California community colleges. The Salary Surfer uses the aggregated earnings of graduates from a five year period to provide an estimate on the potential wages to be earned two years and five years after receiving a certificate or degree in certain disciplines. This tool also provides information on which colleges offer programs in those specific disciplines. The Salary Surfer does not contain information about wages earned by community college students who transfer to a four-year institution.


The CCCCO  College Wage Tracker provides median wage information on students who completed credit awards at a particular California Community College over a series of academic years using California Employment Development (EDD) Unemployment Insurance (UI) wage data . Total annual median wages for students three years after completion of award are displayed and categorized by College and type of award.

Please read methodology for more detail regarding the cohort and data analysis.


Student Right-to-Know Data

In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) and Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.

A cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seeking first-time, full-time students are tracked over a three year period.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Information

The Family Educational Rights Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level.

Institutional Effectiveness Goals

SB 852 and SB 860, passed in late 2014, required the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) to develop, and for the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges to adopt, a framework of indicators to measure student performance and outcomes, accreditation status, fiscal viability, and programmatic compliance with state and federal guidelines.

This legislation was implemented through the CCCCO’s Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI), which developed specific measures for each performance area. The statutes also required colleges and districts to adopt goals for all measures and, as a condition for receipt of Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) funds, to complete and publicly post the IEPI framework.
