The cohort graduation rate tracks the degree completion status of first-time, full-time students starting in the fall quarter. This graduation rate is calculated by dividing the number of students in the cohort who graduated within 150% of the normal time to complete the program by the number of total students in the campus cohort. For bachelor degree granting campuses, the cohort contains students who entered in fall 2005 and completed their program of study by the end of the 12-month period ending August 31 during which the 150% of normal time for completion of their respective program has lapsed. For non-bachelor degree granting campuses, the cohort contains students who entered Harrison in fall 2008 and completed their program of study by the end of the 12-month period ending August 31 during which the 150% of normal time for completion of their respective program has lapsed.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau are charged with collecting and reporting data on total U.S. employment across the full spectrum of SOC major groups. Occupations are classified based on work performed and on the skills, education, and/or training needed to perform the work at a competent level. The link below includes possible job titles, SOC codes, National and Indiana State Median Incomes, and links to O*Net for additional job title information. This information was aggregated from O*Net and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The on-time graduation rate for students who completed the program of study during the federal award year that began on July 1, 2011 and ended June 30, 2012 (“Award Year”). The rate is calculated by dividing the number of students who completed the program of study within the Normal Time (as defined below) during the Award Year by the total number of students who completed the program during the Award Year. “Normal Time” for: (i) an associate degree program of study is either 7, 8 or 9 consecutive academic quarters depending on the program; (ii) a bachelor degree program of study is either 14 or 15 consecutive academic quarters depending on the program; and (iii) a master’s degree program of study is 7 consecutive academic quarters. The Normal Time is not affected by any credits that a student may transfer into, or test out of, his or her program of study. The Normal Time of a new program of study to which a student transfers at the institution begins on the date that the student began attending the program of study at the institution from which he or she transferred.
Cost of Attendance (COA) is the total amount it will cost you to go to school—expressed as an academic yearly figure. It’s determined using rules established by law. The COA includes tuition and fees; housing and food allowance; and allowances for books, supplies, transportation, and loan fees. It also includes miscellaneous and personal expenses. For students attending less than half-time, the COA includes tuition and fees and an allowance for books, supplies, and transportation.
Less than Full-Time Students
The 2010 retention rate was reported to IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) for Harrison College and is based on full time, first time students (% of students who began their studies in fall of 2009 and returned in the fall of 2010).
Placement rates for programs are based on the requirements from our national accrediting body ACICS. Placement rates provided to ACICS illustrate graduate employment reported to Harrison College within one year of graduation and are calculated by the following formula: In field + Related Field / Total grads - Not Available for employment.
This is the median loan debt for students that have graduated from Harrison College programs disaggregated by loan types.
