Definitions

Report Date: July of the year the ACCSC Annual report is being submitted.

Cohort End Date: The beginning month of the cohort for which students are counted as a start in the program. This month is derived by taking the program length, multiplying it by 1.5, and adding 3, (10x1.5) +3=18, then counting back from the report date the number of months just calculated. Finally, the first of the month proceeding this month is the end month of the cohort. Example: July 2015 (report date) back 18 months is January 2014 and the 1st of the month preceding is December 2013, the end date.

Cohort Begin Date: Count 11 months preceding the month of the cohort period to establish the begin month. Example: December 2013 back 11 months is January 2013.

Population Base: The number of students that started school in the specific program on or after the 1st of the begin month, and on or before the last of the end month. This base is adjusted by those who transfer in or out of the program.

Percent of Graduate: The number graduated divided by the eligible graduates.

Eligible Graduates: The population base minus those unavailable for graduation. Unavailable due to the student being deceased, incarcerated, active military service or the onset of a medical condition that prevents continued enrollment.

Percentage Placed: The percentage placed is the number placed in the field divided by those graduates available for placement.

Eligible for Placement: The total graduates less any graduate that falls into one of these categories: death, incarcerated, active military service, the onset of a medical condition that prevents employment or international student returning to their country of origin.

Guidelines for Employment Classification

  1. The employment classification is appropriate and reasonable based on the educational objectives of the program.
  2. The employment is for a reasonable period of time, is based on program objectives, and can be considered sustainable (e.g., not a single day of employment).
  3. The employment is directly related to the program from which the individual graduated, aligns with a majority of the educational and training objectives of the program, and is a paid position.
  4. The employment classification is verified by the school (and verifiable by third parties such as the Commission) as follows:
    1. Regular Employment
      1. The school secures written documentation from the employer verifying the employment and that the employment is related to the student’s program of study at the school; or
      2. The school secures written documentation from the graduate verifying the employment and that the employment is related to the student’s program of study at the school; or
      3. In cases where a school can show diligent efforts have been made to secure such written documentation without success, the school maintains employment verification records that include a) the graduate’s and employer’s name and contact information, b) a signature of school staff attesting to verbal employment verification with the employer and the graduate, and c) the date(s) of verification are acceptable.
    2. Self-Employment
      The school secures written documentation from the self-employed graduate verifying that the employment is valid including, at a minimum, a statement signed by the graduate which includes the following:

      • The graduate’s name and contact information
      • An attestation that the self-employment is aligned with the individual’s employment goals, is vocational, and is based on and related to the education and training received;
      • An attestation that the graduate is earning training-related income; and
      • In cases where licensure is required for employment an attestation that such licensure has been achieved.
    3. Career Advancement
      Students that are already at the time of graduation can be considered employed when completing the program of study as follows:

      1. The school shows with written documentation from the employer or the graduate that the training allowed the graduate to maintain the employment position due to the training provided by the school; or
      2. The school shows with written documentation from the employer or the graduate that the training supported the graduate’s ability to be eligible or qualified for advancement due to the training provided by the school.
