STUDENT DISCLOSURES

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.

ACICS Show Cause Directive Notification

Stratford University has been placed on show-cause by our accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent College and Schools (“ACICS”), due to noncompliance with their Accreditation Criteria. This show-cause directive requires us to notify our current and prospective students.

 

The directive was issued in response to the operation and delivery of Stratford Language Institute programs at a new site in Erbil, Kurdistan. This show-cause directive was not issued in relation to any academic or administrative operations at our US based campuses, and no student’s ability to receive their Stratford University degree will be affected because of this show-cause directive.

 

Our current grant of accreditation has been extended until May 31, 2020. Over the next few months, Stratford University is committed to ensuring that all reaccreditation criteria are met, and that any area of noncompliance related to the site in Erbil, Kurdistan are satisfied.

 

We realize that you may have several questions related to this directive issued by ACICS. Please refer to this FAQ guide. Further inquiries can be directed to compliance@stratford.edu.
