Graduation and Employment Rates

Graduation and Employment Rates –

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.

  • 9 month program is for students who started between March 2019 and February 2020.
  • 12 month program is for students who started between October 2018 and September 2019.

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