College Cuts Developmental Credits by HalfMay 18, 2017 |

Strong partnerships among Klamath Community College, regional high schools, and Southern Oregon communities are producing results.
Recent data from KCC shows the percentage of developmental education credits attempted by KCC students fresh out of high school has been slashed by more than half in the past four years.
“For us to cut this in half is extraordinary,” said KCC President Roberto Gutierrez. “But we’re not done yet. If we can continue reducing the amount of developmental education, more of our students will graduate sooner and it will be less costly for them.”
