Program Aggregate Data

Student Graduation & Retention Rates

Graduation rate (taken from United States Department of Education) measures the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students by showing the percentage of these students who complete their degree or certificate within a 150% of “normal time” for completing the program in which they are enrolled.

Graduation rate is calculated as the sum of students with a “graduated” status divided by the total number of students in the cohort (excluding students with the status of “leave of absence” [medical] or “deceased”).  This data does include students who started in the Athletic Training degree who permanently transferred out of the major, who may have gone on to graduate in this timeframe from another major program.
