**The Placement Rate is based on internal data available for students graduating between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011 who have obtained employment within their field or a related field within 180 days of receiving the certificate. To determine the rate:
- Numerator1: the number of students who, within 180 days of the day they received their degree, certificate, or other recognized educational credential [in a given award year], obtained gainful employment in the recognized occupation for which they were trained or in a related comparable recognized occupation and, on the date of this calculation, are employed, or have been employed, for at least 13 weeks following receipt of the credential from the institution.
- Denominator: the number of students who, during the award year, received the degree, certificate, or other recognized educational credential awarded for successfully completing the program.
Certain graduates are excluded from cohort such as those who are continuing their education and those that have waived employment assistance due to extenuating circumstances such as a medical condition or a decision to work in an unrelated field.
