TJC Student Achievement Data

Student achievement is the driving force behind Tyler Junior College’s mission: The College champions student and community success by providing a caring, comprehensive experience through educational excellence, stellar service, innovative programming and authentic partnerships. One of the four priorities of Tyler Junior College’s 2020-2026 Strategic Plan is Educational Excellence. Four key indicators, which are consistent with the College’s mission, have been chosen to measure student achievement: Persistence Rates, Completion Rates, State Licensing Exam Pass Rates and Working/Enrollment Rates within one year of completion. (note that some indicators have multiple metrics).

For each of our student achievement indicators, the following two metrics have been established:

  1. Target level of performance -- the level of performance that the College seeks to attain in the near future,
  2. Minimum threshold -- acts as a trouble indicator, which the College seeks to never fall below.

Priority for Educational Excellence

Strategy 1: Enhance student success by eliminating barriers that prevent students from achieving their educational and career goals

Action 1:  Identify primary barriers to student success and completion

Action 2:  Focus efforts to eliminate top five learning/educational barriers

Strategy 2: Enrich curriculum to meet the needs of current career expectations

Action 1:  Work with students throughout their college journey to build career literacy, develop professional skills, enhance financial literacy and empower personal development

Action 2: Expand co-curricular learning opportunities

Action 3:  Utilize up-to-date technological resources needed for students to transfer seamlessly into their post-graduate success
