Enrollment Planning Resources

This page provides ready access to resources that can assist in the planning and management of CCAC enrollment. 


  • Enrollment Planning Tool
    This tool  is an Excel workbook for setting enrollment management targets for the 2014-15 academic year. Targets include such things as program enrollment targets, share of recent high school graduates, retention rates, and increases in specific target populations. The tool enables each of the campuses to organize their unique understanding of their communities, campus and programs into a College wide plan for enrollment.


  • Bottom Lines
    CCAC’s annual fact book, Bottom Lines, provides comprehensive and detailed information about College enrollment and the traits of our students at the campus level. 


  •  CCAC Scorecard
    The scorecard contains metrics related to the achievement of our Mission and Goals in the strategic plan. A number of these metrics pertain directly to enrollment.


  • Fall Headcount Change by CIP Groupings
    This report, prepared in Fall 2013 shows program groupings where enrollment has grown while overall college enrollment has declined, those programs where enrollment has been on par with the decline in college enrollment and those where declines exceeded the rate of decline for the college.
