The Student Equity Program is designed to provide support to under-represented student groups at NOCE.

North Orange Continuing Education (NOCE) has created a three-year Student Equity Plan to increase student success 

Data indicates that NOCE underrepresented groups include: 

  • American Indians or Alaskan Natives 
  • Asian or Pacific Islanders 
  • African Americans

Through effective strategies and school-wide activities, NOCE’s Student Equity Plan aims to close the achievement gap and improve student success through indicators such as: 

  • Ease of access to school, applications, and other services  
  • Retention of students from Fall to Spring semesters 
  • Course completion 
  • Completion of the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program and/or Basic Skills Program 
  • Completion of a Career Technical Education (CTE) certificate
