Gnomon is required to post and distribute graduation and completion rates based on data submitted annually to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The information provided is made available through the College Navigator.
For the current reporting year (2019-20), Gnomon reported only one full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate student who entered Gnomon in the Fall of 2013, however this particular student did not graduate. Since the rest of the disclosure is based on this particular cohort of students, the responses of ‘0%’ are not indicative of actual completion and graduation rates.
The information Gnomon reported to IPEDS is limited to 'first-time, full-time' students who started in the Fall of 2013 only. For the current reporting year, that number was one, although the number of students overall that started in the Fall of 2013 was 18. The number of students that graduated on-time was 11, or 61%. The number that graduated within 150% of the program length was 2, or 11%. The number that withdrew was 5, or 28%.
Gnomon is providing the disclosure from 2016-17 which used the 12-month timeframe between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2014 as it provides a context for the information.
For more comprehensive information, Gnomon invites you to review the completion and graduation rates as reported to our accreditor ACCSC and to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. The links are on this page above.
