The U.S. Department of Education prohibits the Academy from including in the on-time completion rate any student completer that has a delayed graduation date. Whether a student graduates on-time or not can be caused by several different factors. Many students have delayed completion times due to family responsibilities, child care and/or medical issues, or conflicts with employment schedules. Students within this category do graduate, but they do not meet the definition of the U.S. Department of Education’s on-time completion rate, and are not included in the on-time completion rates listed under each program of study. For on-time completion rates, please see each program of study.
