Student Right-To-Know

The Student Right-To-Know Act requires NVCC to disclose to all enrolled and prospective students statistics on undergraduate students. This information is drawn directly from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) website and is updated every year as new information becomes available.

Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) 

The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is a system of survey components that collects data from approximately 7,000 institutions that provide postsecondary education across the United States. IPEDS collects institution-level data on student enrollment, retention rates, graduation rates, student charges, program completions, academic libraries, faculty, staff, and finances. These data are used at the federal and state level for policy analysis and development; at the institutional level for benchmarking and peer analysis; and by students and parents, through the College Navigator, an online tool to aid in the college search process. For more information about IPEDS, visit http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds.  


IPEDS Data Feedback Reports

The Data Feedback Report is intended to provide institutions a context for examining the data they submitted to IPEDS. The purpose of this report is to provide institutional executives a useful resource and to help improve the quality and comparability of IPEDS data. The figures in this report provide a selection of indicators for your institution to compare with a group of similar institutions. The figures draw from the data collected during the annual IPEDS collection cycle and are the most recent data available. The inside cover of this report lists the pre-selected comparison group of institutions and the criteria used for their selection. The Methodological Notes at the end of the report describe additional information about these indicators and the pre-selected comparison group.

Enrollment

NVCC values diversity among students, employees, and community partners, knowing how differences in perspectives, experiences, and abilities contribute to the rich fabric of the college and the ability to achieve its mission. Check out a student profile to view the characteristics of credit students by semester, including age, gender, high school, and more.

Survey Guidelines

The data produced by a survey or any assessment is only useful if the tool is carefully constructed and applied to an appropriate sampling plan. Given these requirements, the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (OIRE) suggests reading NVCC's survey principles and protocols for designing and administering surveys at NVCC and reporting survey results.


Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) 

The Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE), a product and service of the Center for Community College Student Engagement, helps community colleges discover why some entering students persist and succeed and others do not. Administered during the 4th and 5th weeks of the fall academic term, SENSE asks students to reflect on their earliest experiences (academic and services-related) with the college.


Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE)

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE), a product and service of the Center for Community College Student Engagement, is a well-established tool that helps institutions focus on good educational practice and identify areas in which they can improve their programs and services for students. Administered during the spring to mostly returning students, CCSSE asks about institutional practices and student behaviors that are highly correlated with student learning and retention.
