The Mission of Cisco College is to provide quality, affordable, educational opportunities to meet the diverse academic, technical and career needs of the students and communities we serve.

Cisco College measures student achievement with respect to its Mission by maintaining at or above state-level peer group averages in graduation and persistence rates, and continued success in workforce program licensure rates. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board collects and publishes this information as presented below:
