Placement Rate Methodology
The following information will assist you in understanding Neumont’s placement rate methodology. Neumont College of Computer Science is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). ACCSC calculates the Job Placement rate as follows: Graduates employed in the field divided by graduates available for employment.
The rates shown on the Gainful Employment disclosures include graduates placed between 10/01/2012 and 09/30/2013.
Graduates – Employed in Field: The number of graduates employed in jobs for which the program trained them. NOTE: Graduates classified as employed must be supported by documentation showing position obtained, date employed, employer, and employer contact person, address, and phone.
Graduates – Available for Employment: This number removes graduates from the placement rate who fall into one of the following categories:
- active military service deployment;
- The onset of a medical condition that prevents employment;
- International students who have returned to their country of origin; and/or
- Individuals who continue with education in an accredited institution of higher education on at least a half-time basis.
Neumont College of Computer Science maintains documentation supporting the above-named categories.
