Graduation and Employment

as submitted to the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).

Completion or Graduation rates (G) consist of the number of students who graduated from the program divided by the number of students who started in the program during the time period.  The students who graduated must have done so within 150% of program.  The time period reported on is based on 150% of the program plus three months.

Example the data reported in 2023 for a:

  • 9 month program is for students who started between April 2021 and January 2022.
  • 12 month program is for students who started between October 2020 and July 2021.

The ACCSC established benchmark for Graduation of a 9 month program is 60% and for a 12 month program it is 55%. 

Placement or Employment rates (E) consist of the total number of graduates verified as employed in the field divided by the number who graduated.  The ACCSC established benchmark for Employment is 70%.
