The table below reflect the percentage of total students completing the program in five semesters (full-time) and in increments of an additional two semesters (e.g. 150% = 6-7 semesters). The majority of our students work and attend school part-time, leading to longer completion rates. The standard Program Length (PL) is based on a full-time student completing the program in five semesters.
