Student Achievement Disclosure Information

As an institution accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), Ashland Community and Technical College (ACTC) is obligated to publish information about its goals and outcomes for student achievement. Specifically, ACTC is obligated to publish its graduation rate and to disaggregate this information as appropriate to the institution. ACTC has chosen to disaggregate its graduate rate information by underrepresented minority students and low income students. Graduation rate information for underrepresented minorities is aligned to the 2016-2022 ACTC Strategic Plan and current diversity plan. Low income graduation rate information is aligned to the college’s current diversity plan. Thresholds of acceptability were determined as the lowest rate reported for each measure for the period between 2013-2014 and 2016-2017
