Student to faculty ratio is one of the standard metrics used to gauge the number of teaching resources a school provides for its students. With 17 students for every one instructional faculty member, Central Texas College has more students split among the same faculty when compared to the national average of 15 . This metric might be an indicator that larger class sizes may be the norm, especially in introductory courses.
The following table shows all the employees the school considers instructional, and therefore, part of the above student-to-faculty ratio.

This school does not have a tenure system, and so we are unable to call out the number of 'adjuncts' due to all teachers being considered non-tenure track. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the school. We encourage you to understand this topic more deeply, and how the colleges you are interested in approach faculty hiring. It's your education and your money on the line. Make sure you know what you are getting for it.
Many U.S. colleges utilize enrolled graduate assistants to help instructional faculty, however, as Central Texas College does not offer graduate degree programs, this practice is not applicable to this college.
