These are the data reported to ACICS by the institution in its most recent Campus Accountability Report.
Federal Retention Rate: In accordance with federal law, Siba also must make available the retention rates it reports to the U.S. Department of Education. The Federal Retention Rate, as defined by the Department, is a measure of the rate at which students persist in their educational program at an institution, expressed as a percentage. More specifically, each year it is the percentage of first-time degree- or certificate-seeking students from the previous fall who either re-enrolled or successfully completed their program by the current fall. Like the Student-Right-to-Know graduation rate, the Federal Retention Rate is calculated at the school level (i.e., there is one rate for the entire school, not a rate for each specific program). Siba has a 81% retention rate of certificate – or degree-seeking first-time full-time undergraduate students. This data can also be obtained from the College Navigator site.
Placement rates are calculated on a fiscal year basis and are reported to our accreditation agency, ACICS. ACICS also determines the methodology we use to calculate our placement. We consider all graduates for the fiscal year with the exception of the following kinds of students: those who cannot be placed due to health reasons, those who cannot be placed due to military placement, those who cannot be placed due to Visa restrictions, and those who cannot be placed due to continuing education.
