It provides a college profile and information on access, completion, transfer rate and success, graduate employment, student development, TASP Test passage rate, academic progress of all students, stakeholder satisfaction, finance, facilities, and an appendix listing institutional performance indicators. In 1999, 54 percent of STCC students were academically disadvantaged, 65 percent were economically disadvantaged, 3 percent were individuals with disabilities, and 7 percent were non-traditional majors. As of spring 1999, 22 percent of the fall 1995 first-time, full-time students graduated, 21 percent were still enrolled, and 6 percent transferred. During spring 1999, 38 percent of students with developmental math passed College Algebra while 37 percent of students with no developmental math passed the course. Results from the 1999 Graduate Follow-Up Survey indicate that 77 percent of graduates in the division of Business were employed in their field of study, continuing education or not seeking employment. Twenty-six percent of the faculty were very satisfied or satisfied with instructional facilities other than classrooms (labs, studios, etc.) while a much greater proportion of the students shared this attitude (59 percent).
