The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Truckee Meadows Community College

TMCC is a large, urban community college offering two-year associate degrees, certificates of achievement and short-term workforce development training. TMCC students take a variety of different pathways to earn a degree, certificate or a skill-based credential that do not always fit traditional graduation rate methodology. Close proximity to a four-year institution allows many of our students to ‘swirl’ between the two schools, which often prolongs their degree attainment. TMCC’s student population is over 80% part-time, which makes it difficult for the majority to graduate within 2 or three years.
