The Student Equity Program promotes student success by focusing on closing the achievement gap for underrepresented student groups.

To promote student success, NOCE has developed a Student Equity Plan with specific goals, outcomes, and actions to address disparities among targeted student demographics.

Data shows that underrepresented groups at NOCE include:  

  • American Indians or Alaskan Natives 
  • Asian or Pacific Islanders 
  • African Americans  
  • LatinX or Hispanics 
  • Whites  
  • Men  
  • Women  
  • Individuals with disabilities (Title 5, §54220) 

Through effective strategies and school-wide activities, NOCE strives to narrow the equity achievement gap and improve student success through the following Student Equity Plan indicators: 

  • Access 
  • Retention 
  • Course completion 
  • English as a second language and basic skills completion 
  • Career Technical Education certificate completion 
  • Noncredit-to-credit transition
