Overview

The Completion Arch is a web based tool that provides quick and easy access to national, state and initiative-level data that describe the progress and success of community college students.

The Completion Arch draws on the data results of national initiatives and published research presented as common measures that track community college student progress and success at national, state and initiative levels, making it a comprehensive resource.

RTI International is currently updating the Completion Arch with new data and indicators. Our new site will launch this fall. Sign up to receive updates.
