The U.S. Department of Education requires that we report and disclose certain information about our school programs in a clear, prominent, user-friendly, and easily understood manner. The intent of the requirement is to enable students to make an informed choice about a program of study. To this end, we have developed documents containing the following information:
• TUITION & FEES
• EMPLOYMENT RATE(S)
• MEDIAN LOAN DEBT INCURRED BY STUDENTS
• ON-TIME COMPLETION RATE
• OCCUPATIONS THAT THE PROGRAM MAY PREPARE STUDENTS TO ENTER
• ALONG WITH LINKS TO THE O*NET OCCUPATIONAL PROFILES
• GRADUATION RATE
U.S. Department of Education references from 34 Code of Federal Regulations:
• OCCUPATION (SECTIONS 600.2, 600.4, 600.5, 600.6, 668.6, & 668.8)
Since Stratford University is an institution of higher education with a diverse population that pursues degrees at both a full-time and part-time pace, and utilizing multiple methods of payment, not limited to but including: cash, federal financial aid, corporate reimbursement, scholarships and military benefits; only reporting full-time rates does not present a clear picture of Stratford University’s student population.
Stratford University is dedicated to changing lives one student at a time in their own time, not forcing students within specified cohort groups to complete their programs within a static graduation timeframe. Stratford University offers open enrollment in programs all year long making it possible for students to accelerate themselves through their education and jump start their careers while balancing their personal schedules and family obligations. If you have any questions or concerns please contact your local campus.
