Program completion rates are below. Our typical expected time frame for completion is two calendar years. However, some students shorten their program by a semester and others choose to extend their program (e.g., go part-time) for personal reasons. Ninety-two percent of the students who completed the program did so within the expected time frame. Of the 8 students who did not complete the program, seven withdrew for personal reasons.
