Gainful Employment | Program Information Disclosure
The following Gainful Employment disclosures are a requirement of the U.S. Department of Education and provide certain information about our programs. The purpose is to provide prospective students with the information necessary to make an informed choice about a program of study. Please note that these disclosures are collected and published according to federal, state, and/or accreditation requirements, which may be different between campuses, and all information may not be available for each campus based on those requirements.
On-Time Completion Rate
Based on students who completed the program within normal time between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. “Normal time” is the typical amount of time it takes full-time students to complete their program, as published in the catalog. This rate is not reflective of the overall completion rate of the program. On-time completion rates can be affected by scheduling changes, failed courses or extended externship hours.
Based on students who completed their program in normal time between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014. The placement rate is determined by dividing the number of graduates gainfully employed in the field by the number of graduates available for employment. Gainfully employed means the graduate is employed in a single position for which the institution represents the program prepares its graduates, within six months after a student completes the applicable educational program. For occupations in which the state requires passing an examination, the period of employment shall begin within six months of the announcement of the examination results for the first examination available after a student completes an applicable educational program.
