Post-Graduate Placement Rates

Employment data are reported for the professional and graduate programs listed below. For each of these programs the timeframe for reporting and the population of students differ. For instance, some programs, like the Master of Athletic Training, are required by their accreditor to report data on graduates within six months of licensure, while others report within one year of graduation. The population of students on which the employment rate is calculated also varies. For instance, the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is required to report on those graduates who sought employment, not all graduates as many other programs report. Programs that report on known graduates calculate the placement rate based on the students who responded to the graduate survey, not all students who graduated.
