Institutional Data

Feather River College at a Glance

FRC is a small college, though not the smallest in the California CC system. In the 2000s, it typically enrolled more than 3,000 students annually, while over the last three years its student count has neared 3,000. As in so many community colleges, the proportion of part-time students is relatively high. In the 2013-14 academic year, the full-time equivalent (FTE) value was about half of the overall number of students enrolled (2,925).

The performance of an institution may be measured in several ways, and California’s colleges adopted a double approach to account for - the strictly defined - academic progress. On the one hand, data is collected about enrollment and success for each term and academic year. On the other hand, students entering the college every fall are traced along six years and the performance metrics of these cohorts are calculated as part of the Scorecard evaluation system maintained by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. Scorecard data may be seen on their website and downloaded from their DataMart.

Results of the Fall 2014 term are summarized here in three charts.
