The 2015-2020 Quality Assurance Funding cycle puts a special focus on providing quality services and accessible opportunities to adults 24 year of age and older. This standard required colleges to conduct a self-study, create a plan of action, and provide annual implementation status reports on what is being done to increase the number of adult graduates at each institution. Colleges are scored both on the implementation of previously submitted action plans as well as the number of adult graduates from the prior year. Institutions are expected to maintain or increase the number of adult graduates each year (based on a three-year rolling average). JSCC adult learner graduation data is below:
|Quantitative Metric||2014-15||2015-16||2016-17||3 Yr. Avg Benchmark||2017-18||Percent Attained*|
|Adult Learner Graduates||378||269||248||298||258||87%|
As part of the effort to increase the quality of service and quantity of graduates, JSCC began surveying all adult students fall 2017. The Adult Learner Student Survey is conducted in fall and spring terms.
