Voluntary Framework for Accountability

Voluntary Framework for Accountability (VFA)

The VFA is a national framework designed to measure student success. The Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission reports standardized data for each college based on the VFA cohort definition, which is slightly different than the cohort used for our student success indicators. The student success metrics are similar, but don’t perfectly align.

TBCC has selected specific peer colleges for comparison which are small (less than 2,000 students), and are in rural or suburban communities. This includes the 7 smallest community colleges in Oregon.
