Placement Rates (All Locations)

Job placement percentages are compiled as a net number of graduates placed in a related field per program. The total number of placed students within the timeframe above is divided by the total number of graduates in the same timeframe who were available for work. See below for detailed definition of placement.
Please Note: Students that are unavailable for work or considered waived are not calculated in the percentages.

Definition of Placement

ACICS applies the following Definition of Placement to outcomes reported by member institutions:

  • 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 for which the program prepares students. These job titles must be those 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.
    OR
    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 those listed in the institution’s published program description and a majority of these skills must be documented in the employer’s job description as required or desired skills, duties or responsibilities.
    OR
    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.

ACICS calculates placement rates as follows:

  • (Placed by job title + Placed by skills + Placed by benefit of training)
    ______________________________________________________________
    ((Completers + Graduates) – (Exemptions*))

* Exemptions are: pregnancy, death or other health-related issues, continuing education, military service, visa restrictions, enrollment in English as a Second Language (ESL) program, and incarceration.
