Student Achievement

Student Achievement

The information below provides statements of goals and outcomes for the following student achievement measures: graduation rates, first-year retention, student cohort default rates, successful course completion, and professional licensing and certification examination results.

ECPI University also participates (along with 645 other postsecondary institutions as of February 2020) in the Student Achievement Measure (SAM), which reports student transfers across postsecondary institutions to provide a more complete picture of undergraduate student progress and completion. SAM is an alternative to the IPEDS graduation rate, which limits cohorts to first-time, full-time students at a single institution. ECPI University’s student achievement outcomes using the SAM initiative methodology are provided at the following link: http://studentachievementmeasure.org/participants/248934
