2016-2017 Student Learning Outcomes

Wake Tech Admissions Services asked prospective students if they were able to identify their unique next step in the enrollment process after receiving admissions information through sessions or campus visits.  The following are student response rates who correctly identified their next step:

  • 98%, after attending Career and College Promise (CCP) Information Sessions
  • 92%, after attending  Guiding Prospective Students (GPS) Sessions
  • 82%, after campus visits

Being able to identify this step by name will increase the student's likelihood of moving forward with admission and enrollment at the college.

Academic Advisors in Enrollment and Student Services presented “Transfer 101” information sessions in ACA 122 College Transfer Success courses on Southern and Scott Northern Wake Campuses.  The sessions provided students with additional information about transferring to four-year institutions.  Students were asked to identify two transfer facts learned after attending the presentation: 

  • In fall 2016, 96% of student respondents were able to identify two transfer facts.
  •  In spring 2017, 91% of student respondents were able to identify two transfer facts.

Quantitative results not only showed that most students could identify two important transfer facts, but that most students were in agreement that they understood the importance of researching degree requirements and the importance of working with an advisor.  Students said they felt better prepared to transfer after participating in the presentation.
