Placement Methodology:

Graduate Population: The number of graduates in a calendar year. 
 
Calculation: The number of the graduate population employed in their field based on job titles, skills, or benefit of the training by 4/1 following the CAR year, divided by (the total number of graduates during the period, minus those who are unavailable for work due to medical, continuing education, active military, VISA or incarceration).
 
Example: If 10 students graduated, and of these, 5 were placed in their field on or before 4/1 following the calendar year end, and 3 decided to continue their education, the placement rate would be calculated as: 5/(10-3)=71%
 
Any student who is considered a graduate of one program but is continuing their education in another program during the same calendar year will NOT be considered for placement in the original program they graduated from.
 
This methodology allows for a one-time placement of each student upon completion of their final program and exit from the school.
 
In the event of a student’s withdrawal from an additional program but successful completion of a (lesser) program, the student will be recorded as a graduate and their placement reported in their final completed program.
 
Example 1
A student enrolls in the Master’s program and concurrently enrolls in the graduate certificate programs. In his sixth month of enrollment, he graduates from the Social Intelligence certificate. Because he is still completing the Master’s program, he is not considered for placement. At the end of the full 27 months, he graduates from the Master’s program and is tracked in the Master’s program’s placement data.
 
Example 2
A student enrolls in the Master’s program and concurrently enrolls in the graduate certificate programs. In his first six months of enrollment, he graduates from the Graduate Certificate in Social Intelligence program (SI). In the seventh month, he withdraws from the University and does not complete any other program. Because he has completed the SI certificate, he is tracked in the SI program’s placement data only.
 
Example 3
A student enrolls in the Master’s program and concurrently enrolls in the graduate certificate programs. In his sixth month of enrollment, he graduates from the Graduate Certificate in Emotional Intelligence program (EI) and in his ninth month he graduates from the Graduate Certificate in Transformational Coaching (TC) program. In the tenth month, he drops from the University and does not complete any other program. Because he has completed the TC certificate last, he is tracked for placement in that program.

Retention Methodology:

Retention Methodology:
Student Population: For CAR 2015 and CAR 2016, the total number of students who attended between the 12 month period of 7/1 of one year to 6/30 of the next (7/1/15 to 6/30/16 is represented as CAR16 data). For 2017, the total number of students who attended in the calendar year. 
 
Calculation: The student population minus any student who withdrew divided by the student population.
 
Example: If 10 students attended during the 12 month period, and 2 withdrew during the period, (10-2)/10= 80% retention rate.
