  • Graduation Rate reflects the number of freshmen who were officially enrolled in the fall semester and earned a certificate or degree within the expected timeframe.

  • Post Graduate Survey an annual on-line post graduate survey utilized by the college to gather vital information regarding career placement, starting salary, and level of satisfaction. Employer Satisfaction Survey an annual on-line employer survey utilized by the college to gather vital information regarding the preparation level of the Stevens’ graduate.

    • Placement Rate is the percent of graduate survey respondents who reported being employed or continued their education on a full-time basis.
    • Graduate Satisfaction is the median graduate survey response evaluating the level of preparation for workforce entry (based on a 5-Item Likert Scale).
