Methodologies

Graduation Rate of bachelor-seeking cohort: Information comes from IPEDS GRS 150 report for the appropriate year. 2010 Cohort graduation rate will be published when IPEDS data is available.

Retention Rate: Full-time, First-time, degree-seeking students (FTIC cohort). Divide returning members of a specific cohort by the original FTIC cohort population. Students who did not return the following year may be eligible to be exempted from the FTIC cohort list if their reason for leaving is an acceptable IPEDS exclusion.

Placement Rate: The Graduate Report includes LeTourneau University traditional graduates with May, August, and December 2014 graduation dates. The data in this report are based on survey information received through multiple sources. Students were asked to self-report post-graduation activities through the following methods:

  • Senior graduation surveys administered at graduation rehearsal.
  • Online graduation surveys administered at end of final semester of enrollment.
  • Online graduation surveys administered following graduation.

Faculty and staff were asked to assist in gathering information related to graduates who had not reported their activity. The Career Services office followed up with graduates by LinkedIn, Facebook, and email.

Alumni Survey: Given every odd-numbered year.
