Annual Attrition Rates

We know you want to understand everything you can about a degree program before you apply and enter. That's why we're happy to include our annual attrition rate information.

How we calculate our attrition rate

To calculate our attrition rate, we take the number of students who attritted from cohort divided by the entering class size.

Our graduation rate is calculated by taking the number of cohort graduates divided by the entering class size.

The entering class size is greater in each case than the Maximum entering class size due to inclusion of returning students from a previous cohort.
