  1. CollegeReadiness Presentation Prepared by Mike Horton Riverside County Office of Education

  2. My Philosophy The goal for my students is to go straight to a 4-year public university and complete a bachelor’s degree. This isn’t simply my opinion, this is based on a variety of data.

  3. TheData Why my kids won’t go to community college What is the 6-year bachelor’s degree completion rate for students beginning at a 2-year college? 10% http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d10/tables/dt10_341.asp

  4. The Data Why my kids won’t go to community college What is the 6-year bachelor’s degree completion rate for students beginning at a 2-year college declaring that they intend to complete a bachelor’s degree? 22% http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d10/tables/dt10_341.asp

  5. The Data Why my kids won’t go to community college Of those who intend to complete a bachelor’s degree, what percentage ever even transfer to a 4-year university? 28% http://academic.rcc.edu/ir/Research/Torres/RCCD Transfer - Basic Info.doc


  6. The Data Why my kids won’t go to community college Of those African American CC students who intend to complete a bachelor’s degree, what percentage ever even transfer to a 4-year university? 19% http://chronicle.com/article/Minority-Students-Lag-in/130783/

  7. The Data Why my kids won’t go to community college Of those Hispanic CC students who intend to complete a bachelor’s degree, what percentage ever even transfer to a 4-year university? 17% http://chronicle.com/article/Minority-Students-Lag-in/130783/

  8. The Data Why my kids will go to 4-year university What is the 6-year bachelor’s degree completion rate for students beginning at a 4-year public university? 53% http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d10/tables/dt10_341.asp

  9. The Data Why my kids won’t go to a for-profit school (ITT, DeVry, National, Four-D, Summit) Completion rates for 4-year universities: Public: 53.3% Private (not for profit): 68.9% Private (for profit*): 20.0% *DeVry, Phoenix, National, Four-D, Summit, Everest, etc. http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d10/tables/dt10_341.asp

  10. The Data Why I prefer UC schools for my kids 6-year completion rates: University of California: 81% California State University: 47% Private Schools: 61% (UCR: 66%, CSUSB: 38%, LaVerne: 58%) http://www.cpec.ca.gov/StudentData/GradRates.asp

  12. The Data Why my kids will get a bachelor’s degree part 1 Given an average 42 years of employment before retirement, what is the differencein salary over a lifetime between an associate’s degree ($39,506) and a bachelor’s degree ($58,613)? $802,000 *Note: The difference between B.A. and HS is $1,150,000 http://census.org

  14. What are UC Schools Looking For? UCSD’s Comprehensive Review Calculation Although UC schools don’t technically use this calculation anymore, each campus receives more than 10,000 applications and must use something similar in the “holistic review process.”

  15. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 1: Uncapped GPA This is the most highly weighted item on the UC’s review process GPA is calculated on only 10th and 11th grades for only a-g courses Honors (mostly in 11th grade), Dual Enrollment, and AP courses are weighted The average student accepted to UCR is 3.6 (UCR has the second lowest average GPA of all UC schools)

  16. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 2: SAT/ACT test scores This is the second most highly weighted item on the UC’s review process 26% of students who took the SAT at NBECHS scored higher than 1,500 The average score of admits to UCR was 1,710

  17. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 3: “a-g” classes beyond minimum Questions: Do students take more than the minimum a-g courses? Are students encouraged to take a full schedule of challenging courses senior year? Are athletes aware of the NCAA requirements?

  18. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 4: Eligibility in the Local Context ELC is an alternative way to qualify for UC schools by being ranked in the top 9% of the school’s or state’s graduating class. Because of NBECHS’s small senior class, the school ELC will be a very small group, so students should shoot for the state ELC. The state ELC depends upon GPA and SAT/ACT scores. http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/freshman/california-residents/admissions-index/index.html

  19. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 5: Educational Environment NBECHS is not a low-performing school, so students will automatically lose these points. Factor 6: Low Income Students earn points for being low income. This is measured by free and reduced-price lunch status.

  20. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 7: Parent Education Level What percentage of students are first in their family to attend college? Factor 8: Leadership Students earn points for being president or vice president of at least two leadership positions. Questions: What leadership opportunities are there at our school? What clubs exist that could have a president and vice president? What additional leadership opportunities can be created?

  21. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 9: Special Achievement UC wants to see 1st to 3rd place victories in regional academic events.

  22. What are UC Schools Looking For? Factor 10: Community Service To get full credit, students need to complete more than 200 hours of community service. Questions: What percentage of students complete more than 200 hours of community service? How can this number be increased? What opportunities can be created for additional community service? Habitat for Humanity? Local service groups? Interact? Rotary? Key Club? Clean-ups?

  23. What are UC Schools Looking For? If a student doesn’t have access to special UC summer school programs, hasn’t had a trauma in their family, has a parent that went to college, and doesn’t qualify for free lunch, they’ve already lost 2,000 points. In 2009, a student could only lose 3,400 points and still qualify. If a student has a 4.0 GPA and average SAT scores, they lose another 1,500 points and will no longer qualify for a UC school. It is important to get every single one of these points possible.

  24. What are UC Schools Looking For? Additional information on “holistic review” In addition to the factors used in the “comprehensive review” process displayed above, the holistic review also puts a lot of weight (up to 25%) on the student’s Personal Statement that is part of their application. Questions: What support do students get in writing their Personal Statements? Is the Personal Statement essay part of the ELA curriculum in 11th grade? What else can be offered to assist students with Personal Statements?
