The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) has reviewed the revised College Scorecard and provides insight on what it means for community colleges. Highlights include information regarding costs, graduation & retention rates, earnings after school, and an analysis of the student body. They break down costs according to financial aid and federal loan recipients, debt, and average amount of money spent on attending school. While looking more closely at student body demographics, the document breaks down the population by full-time/part-time status, socioeconomic standing, and race/ethnicity. The AACC explains parts that are confusing on the Scorecard to shed more light on each category.
