AIU Online - Graduation Rate

The percentage of first-time, full-time undergraduate students who started between
7/1/2006 and 10/15/2006 who completed within 150% of the normal time period: 32%

Graduation Rate

A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website. http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/

Program Costs

The US Department of Education categorizes educational programs offered at an institution by CIP code (Classification of Instructional Program codes as defined by the Department of Education) and degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc…). For that reason, all educational programs with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined to calculate program costs. While these combined programs are similar, variations in tuition and fees can exist due to differences in location and/or program structure.

The costs shown are calculated using the average costs of all programs offered by the campus within the same CIP Code and degree type, for students that complete the program within the normal period of time.

Room and Board information represents the average cost of optional institutional housing where offered.

This Campus is part of a larger institution that contains the following additional campuses:

  • AIU - ONLINE
  • AIU - South Florida
  • AIU - Atlanta
  • AIU - Houston

The costs of similar programs calculated as an average across all campuses for this Institution are as follows:

Financing

The US Department of Education categorizes educational programs offered at an Institution by CIP code (Classification of Instructional Program codes as defined by the Department of Education) and degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc…). For that reason, all similar educational programs for the given Institution1, with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined to calculate Loan Debt. While these combined programs are similar in nature, variations in program costs may exist due to differences in location and/or program structure. Accordingly, the debt amount shown may exceed the specific program's tuition and fees.

The Financing amounts represent the median debt from federal Title IV loans, private educational loans and institutional2 payment plans incurred by all graduates of the given Institution, CIP Code and Degree level.

Program Completion

The US Department of Education categorizes educational programs offered at an Institution by CIP code (Classification of Instructional Program codes as defined by the Department of Education) and degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc…). For that reason, all similar educational programs for the given Institution1, with the same CIP Code and degree level are combined when determining On Time Completion Rates.

On-Time Completion Rates are calculated in compliance with U.S. Department of Education requirements for Gainful Employment. The rate represents the percentage of students who graduated between 7/1/2012 - 6/30/2013 and completed their program of study within the normal timeframe. "Normal" timeframe for Associate Degree programs is defined as 24 months, and for Bachelor Degree programs is defined as 48 months. Students may finish in fewer months upon successful completion of all program requirements, attending full-time and remaining continuously enrolled. For example, for a two-year program the on-time completion rate would include all students who graduated between 7/1/2012 - 6/30/2013 and started within the prior two years.

On-time completion rates for students in programs other than an Associate or Bachelor program are calculated based on the designed timeframes of each individual's specific program version; therefore, the result may not fully correlate to the number of months displayed because the calculation may have included students in versions of the program with varying timeframes. The program length displayed for programs other than an Associate or Bachelor program represents the number of months defined as the normal timeframe for completion in which new students may finish the program upon successful completion of all program requirements, attending full-time and remaining continuously enrolled.

  • AIU - ONLINE
  • AIU - South Florida
  • AIU - Atlanta
  • AIU - Houston
