1997 Graduation Rates

Institutional Analysis and Planning

1997 Graduation Rates

The attached statistics have been compiled by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities .

The methodology employed involves the selection of all full-time, Year 1 undergraduate students (new to the institution) in the Fall of 1997 who were enrolled in either a Bachelors or First Professional (e.g., BEd) degree program. This subset was then matched against the records for students who received a Bachelors or First Professional degree (in any program area) from the same institution during the seven-year period 1998 - 2004. For students who received two or more degrees in the period, every effort was made to use only the initial degree (based on the academic year in which the degree was awarded). Students not seeking an undergraduate degree (e.g., diploma students) have been excluded.

The results are presented according to the starting (1997) program of study, using groupings developed by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU).
