Campus Disclosures Related to Institutional Effectiveness

hide

he Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), includes many disclosure and reporting requirements for colleges and universities. A disclosure requirement is information that a postsecondary education institution is required to distribute or make available to another party, such as students or employees. A reporting requirement is information submitted to the U.S. Department of Education or other agencies.

Disclosure and reporting requirements sometimes overlap. For certain topics, institutions are required to make information available to students or others and to submit information to the Department of Education. Additionally, under current 34 CFR 668.6 (a & b), an institution is required to reporting and disclose information with regard to preparation of its students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. Many of these data elements are provided on this Web page.

For college policies regarding application information, articulation agreements, transfer of credit, and services available to students, please consult the LAVC Catalog.

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.

Student Right-to-Know Rates for

Fall 2011 Cohort

Completion Rate: 21.12 %
Transfer Rate: 9.13 %
 

 last updated 4/21/2019

Additional information on previous cohorts can be found at the SRTK link above. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at LAVC, nor does it account for student outcomes occurring outside this three-year tracking period.

 

Los Angeles Valley College Consumer Information

 

Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) provides current or prospective students, and their families with consumer information about the college, which includes:

  • General campus information
  • Tuition and Fees
  • Financial Aid
  • Enrollment
  • Student Race/ethnicity and Gender
  • Program Completion
  • Retention Rates for First-Time Students
  • Overall Graduation Rate and Transfer-Out Programs/Majors
  • Net Price Calculator

LAVC’s data elements are reported annually through the IPEDS system to The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). NCES is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education in the U.S. and other nations. NCES is located within the U.S. Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences.

 

The College Affordability & Transparency Center (CATC) College Scorecard provides information on the net price, graduation, loan default rate and typical amount borrowed by students. See LAVC CATC College Scorecard.  See College Affordability & Transparency Lists. (US Department of Education)

 

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 publically post the IEPI framework.
