Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) Graduation and Employment Rate Calculation Methodology

The reporting period used to complete the Graduation and Employment Chart is determined by taking the program’s normal length of completion (including vacations and holidays rounded to the nearest whole number) in months multiplied by 150 percent and adding three (3) months for employment, based on the Commission’s report date of July 2015. Students excluded from the calculation of the placement rate are those considered unavailable for placement due to: a medical condition, incarceration, active military, or death. The rates were reported in October 2015 and includes all students who started their program of study during the reporting period.

Council on Occupational Education (COE) Graduation and Employment Rate Calculation Methodology

The reporting period used to calculate the graduation and employment rates is the most recent 12 month period starting on July 1, 2014 and ending June 30, 2015. The graduation rate is the number of graduate completers divided by the cumulative enrollment number minus the number of students still enrolled multiplied by 100. The employment rate is the number of graduate completers employed in a training-related field (minus graduate completers who were unavailable for employment or refused employment) divided by the number of graduate completers multiplied by 100. The rates are calculated and submitted in December of each year and include all students who began or were continuing their program of student during the reporting period.

Texas Graduation and Employment Rate Calculation Methodology

This rate is calculated on program completers from August 2014 to September 2015 who were verified as employed by an independent 3rd party prior to the annual report submission in December 2015.
