Graduation and Retention Rates

Lock-Step Programs 

The student achievement data collected by Salus and published here meets the public disclosure requirements of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).

The graduation and retention rates published here adhere to the federally-approved Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System’s (IPEDS) methodology. For the following lock-step programs, graduation rate is equal to the percentage of students who completed the program "on time." The retention rate is equal to the percentage of students who graduated on time, graduated late, are on an approved leave of absence, or are still currently enrolled.  

 

Non-Lock Step Programs 

For the non-lock step programs, students can enter the program and complete it on a part-time basis and/or without a specified number of years to complete the degree. For these programs, the graduate rate is equal to the percentage of students who completed the program within five years from starting the program. Currently, only students in the 2016-17 year have a graduation rate. The retention rate is equal to the percentage of students who graduated on time, graduated late, are on an approved leave of absence, or are still currently enrolled.
