STAR - Success Through Academic Reporting

The College's Quality Enhancement Plan is known as STAR, which stands for Success Through Academic Reporting. As the name suggests, it was developed to improve student success. It is an early alert system to let students know how they are progressing in their courses. As of fall 2014, CPCC students began receiving STAR alerts/interventions. Faculty submit STAR alerts for students at two critical points in the semester to notify students of their class progress: 1) within the first three weeks and, 2) by mid-term.

In addition, all first-time, full-time, degree-seeking (FFD) students receive enhanced student support and ongoing strategic communication from the STAR Student Success Coach, such as campus reminders and resource referrals. During the 2014 - 2018 academic years, the college will conduct a longitudinal study of FFD students to assess the impact of the semester progress reporting system and strategic communication on their academic progress, retention and degree completion.
