The job placement rate, as reported, is based on the definition and calculation as provided by (Accreditation Council of Independent Colleges and School (ACICS). According to ACICS, placement is defined as:
“Placed based upon job titles: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon job titles included in the list of job titles published by the institution on its web site in compliance with USDOE Title IV regulations and must be identified in the Department’s CIP-to-SOC Crosswalk (Standard Occupational Classification, U.S. Department of Labor) with the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code of this program.
Placed based upon the required use of skills: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the required use of skills learned in the student’s program as a predominant component of the job. These skills must be documented in the employer’s job description as required or desired skills, duties or responsibilities
Placed based upon the benefit of the training: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the benefit of the training received from the program in obtaining a new position or maintaining a current position, supporting promotion or improving job related skills.”
