    Fact Book Illustrates Positive Impact of Career Colleges

    Imagine America, an organization that supports the career education community through scholarships, training and research, has released its annual Fact Book that compares private-for-profit, also known as career colleges, with public and not-for-profit two- and four-year colleges. The Fact Book features more than 40 pages of research and analysis.

    The research, compiled by JBL Associates, Inc., a consulting firm committed to providing high-quality research and analysis to the higher education community, includes data from the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other publications that present a statistical analysis of the for-profit sector and its students.

    Altogether, Fact Book 2011: A Profile of Career Colleges and Universities shows the overall positive impact that a career college, such as your FCC school or college, has on the lives of its graduates, especially graduates who are minority or female.

    Here are just a few of the many positive statistics included in the 2011 Fact Book:

      • Twenty-seven percent of all African-American students and 20 percent of all Hispanic students who received associate degrees in 2008-09 earned them at a career college.


      • Forty-five percent of students at two-year career colleges attained a degree or certificate within six years after enrollment, compared with 24 percent of public, two-year students.


      • Students at career colleges attained certificates eight and a half months sooner and associate degrees nearly seven months sooner than did students who were enrolled at public colleges.


      • Forty-four percent of career college students are enrolled in high-growth fields, compared with public (18 percent) and private, not-for-profit (13 percent)


    • Alternative cost calculations estimate that career colleges have an annual net cost to taxpayers of $183 per student, compared with $13,249 per public postsecondary student and $16,669 per private, not-for-profit student.
