Q: When I got my student aid report back from the U.S. Department of Education, it listed a different completion rate than listed here. Why?
A: We publish three different numbers based on DOE requirements alone – the completion rate for our Cleveland campus, the rate for our Winston-Salem campus and the rate for all our other campuses combined. If you’re enrolled in Cleveland or Winston-Salem, you will see a different number from what we’ve provided here, which is the total number for all of our other campuses.
We also report on a campus-by-campus basis, and this is the number the U.S. Department of Education provides on the Student Aid Report. This rate is not the same as the combined rate that the U.S. Department of Education requires us to publish so confusion about the “correct” rate can occur. You should know that individual campus rates can vary from one another quite a bit, particularly at our newer campuses, where the calculation may be based on a very small number of students who enrolled and/or graduated by the time the report was due. Also, the number you get from the U.S. Department of Education may reflect a prior year and could be different, because it shows the results for a different group of students.
