* This program is new. Therefore, the number of students who graduate, the number of students who are placed, or the starting salary you can earn after finishing the educational program are unknown at this time. Information regarding general salary and placement statistics may be available from government sources or from the institution, but is not equivalent to actual performance data.

(1) “Number of Graduates” is the number of students who have completed the program within 100% of the published program length.

(2) “Graduates available for employment” means the number of graduates minus the number of graduates unavailable for employment. “Graduates unavailable for employment” means graduates who, after graduation, die, become incarcerated, are called to active military duty, are international students that leave the United Sates or do not have a visa allowing employment in the United States, or are continuing their education in an accredited or bureau-approved postsecondary institution.

(3) Graduates who report that they are gainfully employed within six months of graduation in a position of which the skills obtained through the education and training provided by the institution are required or provided a significant advantage to the graduate in obtaining the position. Placement Rate is calculated by dividing the number of graduates gainfully employed in the field by the number of graduates available for employment.
