Student Right-to-Know

In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know (SRTK) and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101–542) and as a service to its community, the Southwestern Community College District makes available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.

Beginning in fall 2006 a cohort of all college students who were certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seeking first time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. The completion and transfer rates are based on information submitted by each college to the U.S. Department of Education. Based on the cohort defined above, 19.63 percent of the SWC cohort attained a certificate or degree or became transfer-prepared from fall 2006 to spring 2009. In addition, 12.48 percent transferred to another postsecondary institution (University of California, California State University, or other California community college) during the same three-year period.

NOTE: The above rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Southwestern College (SWC), nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period. Additionally, the rates do not describe other important features about the College and its students. SWC contributes significantly to the lives of thousands of students in assisting them to meet their educational goals.
