Graduation Rate by Program

Graduations between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021

American College of Education calculates an annual graduation rate, which establishes rates of completion based on a student's initial enrollment in a cohort, using expected time-to-completion for their program and the most current start cohort for reporting (e.g., 2018 start cohort for the master’s level). Students are only reported once at the degree level, even if enrolled in more than one program at that level.

Data reflect students who completed a program of study by December 31, 2021.
