Goal 2: Improve FTIC students’ success rates in high enrollment courses.

Objective 2.1 FTIC students will develop the study and personal management skills necessary to succeed in high-enrollment courses.  

Objective 2.2 Faculty will enhance instructional practices to support FTIC student success in high-enrollment courses.

Goal 3: Improve FTIC students’ time-to-completion and degree completion rates.

In January 2016, the QEP Development Team, which consists of a broadly-representative group of CFCC employees from a variety of instructional and service areas, began drafting the QEP document. An executive summary of the QEP has been completed and is ready for submission to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC); the final draft of the plan will be submitted July 2016.

SACSCOC will be visiting the college in October 24-27, 2016 at which time the QEP will be the main focus. To prepare for this visit and throughout this process, the QEP Development Team will be asking for your input.
