Compton College's Three-Year Report to the Community Highlights Continued Student Success


Cover of Compton College's Three-Year Report to the Community

Compton College recently published Compton College: Three-Year Report to the Community, which was mailed to every household within the Compton Community College District – just one component of the community outreach plan instituted with the formation of the partnership between the El Camino Community College District and the Compton Community College District. The publication marks the twelfth anniversary of the partnership between the two college districts.

The accomplishments of outstanding Compton College students are featured in the report, along with important student success indicators, such as increased numbers of students earning degrees and certificates, higher percentages of transfers to four-year colleges and universities, and additional classes for improved student access to classes. To help offset the cost of higher education, financial support for students has also expanded. In the past three years, Compton College students have received a total of $111,800 in scholarships.

The number of degrees and certificates awarded at Compton College increased by nearly 36 percent between the academic years of 2014-15 and 2016-17. From 2014 to 2017, more than 1,100 Compton College students graduated with an associate degree, and more than 400 students earned certificates. Over the past three years, Compton College also increased the number of students transferring to University of California and California State University campuses by 28 percent. The top CSU destinations in 2016-17 were Dominguez Hills and Long Beach, while the top UC destinations for Compton College students were UCLA and UCI.

The Three-Year Report is available online via the Compton College website: www.compton.edu/adminandoperations/publicrelations/docs/Three-Year-Report-August-2018.pdf
