Given the fact that all of the rates reflected below are based on historical data and were subject to varying levels of audit and re-interpretation, students should not rely on them as an implicit or explicit representation or promise of future outcomes or employability following completion of a program of study.

For that reason, all similar educational programs for the given Institution1, with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined to calculate Loan Debt. While these combined programs are similar in nature, variations in program costs may exist due to differences in location and/or program structure. Accordingly, the debt amount shown may exceed the specific program's tuition and fees.

Program Completion

The US Department of Education categorizes educational programs offered at an Institution by CIP code (Classification of Instructional Program codes as defined by the Department of Education) and degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc…). For that reason, all similar educational programs for the given Institution1, with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined when determining On Time Completion Rates.

On-Time Completion Rates are calculated using the gainful employment formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements.  The statistics track all students who graduated from their program between 7/1/2012 and 6/30/2013 and have reached completion within the program’s designed timeframe.  For example, for a two-year program, the on-time completion rate would include all graduated students who started two years prior.   

Academic Calendar breaks that occur during continuous enrollment are considered when determining if a student graduated within the designed timeframe; however, summer breaks typically incorporated into the normal timeframe for more traditional schools are not included in this determination.  The instructional months displayed represent the highest amount of all versions of the program found at the institution; therefore, depending on the specific program version or campus location, the instructional months may be a shorter amount of time.  Each student is measured against the designed timeframe of their specific program version when determining if they graduated “on-time” or not; as a result, this determination may not be made against the displayed instructional months should a shorter or discontinued timeframe be applicable to a student’s specific program version.  One instructional month represents four instructional weeks.

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website. http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/
