Program Statistics

Regarding the "Program Completion" Statistic

The “Program Completion” statistic does NOT indicate what percentage of students have graduated from the specified program (which is otherwise known as the "Retention" or "Graduation" statistic). Rather, students are allowed 1.5 times the established program length (rounded down to the nearest whole semester) to complete their chosen program of study. Thus, the “Program Completion” statistic shows how many students from an indicated acceptance cohort (appearing in parentheses) graduated within this maximum time allotment. Consequently, this statistic should be read as, “Of the students accepted into the [parenthetical year] cohort, [##]% of these students graduated from their program of choice AND did so within the allotted maximum time limit of [non-parenthetical year].” As a result, please be aware that program attrition does affect this statistic, which is most prevalent within the first semester of all nursing programs.
