Program Vitality Report
Fall 2020 Program Vitality Report
Every year Houston Community College (HCC) reviews each program to determine how well the program is performing regarding enrollment, student course success rates, contact hours, graduates, and placement over a ﬁve year period. The Higher Education Coordinating Board requires that all programs must have at least 25 graduates over a ﬁve year period and recommends a placement rate of at least 85% for a three year period. Placement is deﬁned as enrolled in an institution of higher education or employment within one year of graduation. HCC uses the Program Vitality Report to create a glance of the performance of all of its workforce programs and the awards oﬀered by each of them. The report covers a span of ﬁve years as well as the latest information available for this academic year. This year’s report provides a breakdown of all program speciﬁc degrees and certiﬁcates as well as information regarding the latest labor market data for the program.
