Student Voices - Express to Success Program, Santa Barbara City College

Express to Success aims to increase success and completion rates in developmental math and English for Latino students who place one to two levels below college level courses through the collaboration between students and teachers in learning communities.
Since 2011, the program has served more than 900 students, and two-thirds have been Latino. Latino participants registered for the next semester at higher rates (83% vs. 73%), were more likely to complete two levels of math or English in one semester of accelerated format (48%), and achieved a higher success rate than Latino students who did not participate (73% vs. 55%).
Express to Success was selected as the 2014 Example at the Associate Level. Learn more about this program in the Growing What Works Database.
