PA Student Attrition

In order to be in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards of Accreditation, we are required to share information related to student attrition. Student attrition is when a student enters the accredited phase of the program (in the summer semester after his/her 3rd year in the program) but does not graduate with that cohort of students. Please note that student attrition can be the result of several things including: poor academic performance, medical leave of absence, a change in major or deceleration within the program.

*Attrition rate calculation: Number of students who attritted from cohort divided by the entering class size.

**Graduation rate: Number of cohort graduates divided by the entering class size.
