Employment Rates:

Given the fact that all of the rates reflected below are based on historical data and were subject to varying levels of audit and re-interpretation, students should not rely on them as an implicit or explicit representation or promise of future outcomes or employability following completion of a program of study. Indeed, there are numerous factors that affect a student’s ability to graduate and secure employment over which we have little or no control. Therefore, our school cannot and does not guarantee or estimate the likelihood of on-time completion, graduation, or employment for any student.

RATE CALCULATION 

The Special New York Employment Rate

Number of Placed graduates/completers(1), divided by the number of eligible(2) graduates/completers

(1) In calculating the Special New York Placement Rate, Colorado Technical University counts graduates/completers as "Placed" if they obtained a permanent position that is either a full-time position or a part-time position of at least 20 hours per week, and have completed a minimum of 18 days worked, and:

  • the position was included on the list of job titles published by the school for which the program prepares them;
  • the position requires the use of the skills learned in the graduate/completer's program as a predominant component of the job; or
  • for those graduates/completers continuing in a position held prior to enrolling in the program, the graduate/completer attests in writing that the training received enabled the graduate/completer to maintain or advance in the graduate/completer's position.

(2) The number of eligible graduates/completers excludes graduates/completers in the following categories: (i) pregnant or has a medical condition or disability that results in the graduate/completer's inability to work or the graduate/completer has a parent, child or spouse who has a medical condition that requires the care of the graduate; (ii) engaged in full-time active military duty; (iii) enrolled in an additional program of post-secondary education; (iv) deceased; (v) not eligible for placement in the United States because of visa restrictions; (vi) a completer/graduate of a stand-alone English as a Second Language program; (vii) spouse or dependent of military personnel who have moved due to military transfer orders; or (viii) not seeking employment or not seeking new employment but remaining in a position held before graduation and not seeking to obtain promotion or move up over time.

Online Programs - Graduation Rate

The percentage of first-time, full-time undergraduate students who started between

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website. http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/
