As part of a districtwide follow-up study, California's American River College (ARC) surveyed 2,678 former students from 1993-94 to gather information on student outcomes and characteristics. This report presents findings for the college by academic program. First, a brief discussion of survey methodology is provided, indicating that surveys were sent to all graduates and certificate earners and a random sample of non-returning students who had not graduated; tables showing response rates are presented, indicating that 1,096 former students responded; and tables of overall responses are provided. Tables of responses are then presented for occupational education programs, including: accounting, general business, computer information science, early childhood education, electronics technology, engineering technology, fire technology, horticulture, human services, interior design, legal assisting, management, nursing, office administration, and real estate. Responses are then presented for general programs, including art, general education or transfer/liberal arts, interdisciplinary studies, science, and social sciences, and for undeclared students. For each section of responses, data are provided on student demographics, including completion and attendance status, gender, ethnicity, and age; college experience, including objectives and goals, reasons for not re-enrolling, units completed, license examination outcomes, satisfaction with ARC, rating of services, and benefits in terms of career plans; employment information, including student employment in jobs related and unrelated their studies; and continuing education status, including enrollment and transfer status and problems transferring.
