Compliance Standards – Compliance standards are
intended to ensure that a substantial majority of students
at ACICS-accredited campuses are retained, pass licensure
exams where applicable, and find employment related to
their fields. A campus whose rates fall below the
Compliance Standard must come into compliance within
established timeframes or its grant of accreditation may
be withdrawn. A program whose rates fall below the
Compliance Standard must come into compliance within
established timeframes, or approval for inclusion of the
program within the campus’s grant of accreditation may
be withdrawn. A campus whose retention or placement
rate falls below the Compliance Standard must seek prior
approval (by means of a waiver) in order to apply for
approval of a new program.

2013 Reporting Year – ACICS adopted enhanced
student achievement standards in July 2012,
effective for the 2013 reporting period and
beyond, as described in the table below.
 1Where licensure is required for employment.

student retention rates;

graduation rates [when available].
◦ NOTE: 4 of the 6 elements responsibilities reside, in part, with Career
Services!


2-1-809. Student Achievement Review. The Council
reviews the Campus Accountability Report (CAR) and
Institutional Accountability Report (IAR) to monitor
performance in terms of student achievement at both the
campus and program levels. Measures will include
retention; placement; and licensure, registration or
certification pass rates, if applicable.
Each campus shall publish annual placement and retention
goals. In formulating these goals, the campus shall take
into account the retention and placement rates from the
previous three Campus Accountability Reports and the
specific activities that will be undertaken to meet those
goals. The activities must demonstrate the campus’ ability
to maintain or improve retention and placement outcomes
each year.
3-1-440−Student Services
0 (c) Institutions shall provide employment assistance and
document activity. An institution shall not guarantee
employment or the starting salary of its graduates. Followup studies on graduates and employer satisfaction shall be
conducted by all institutions at specific measuring points
following placement of the graduate. All institutions that
use placement percentages or salary projections as part of
their recruiting activities shall maintain data on all
graduates, including the percentage receiving jobs and the
percentage receiving jobs in the career field for which they
were trained. Institutions also should keep data on students
who do not graduate but who become employed on their
own or with the institution’s assistance.

Outcomes. The effectiveness of an institution is
determined by its outcomes. In determining
effectiveness, institutions are required to evaluate
the following outcomes: placement rates (in field,
related field); graduate pass rates relative to
minimum quantitative standards for state licensing
examinations; employer satisfaction as determined
by periodic surveys of those who employ graduates;
graduate satisfaction as determined by periodic
surveys of graduates; and student satisfaction as
determined by periodic surveys of current students.
Institutions also may use additional outcomes in
evaluating effectiveness.
Placement Rate. The placement rate is a required element of the Campus
Effectiveness Plan (see Section 3-1-111 of the Accreditation Criteria). The Placement
Rate is defined by ACICS in terms of the total number of completers and graduates
minus those who are not placed (employed) in their field of study or a related field of
study, divided by the total number of completers and graduates. The placement rate is
calculated at both the program and campus levels, based upon data submitted for the
annual Campus Accountability Report (CAR) and according to the detailed formula
and terms defined in the Guidelines and Instructions for the Campus Accountability
Report, which is available on the ACICS website. The detailed formula includes
definitions of in field and related field placement, adjustments, and exclusions for
students not available for placement. Three years of placement rate data are required
in the CEP, and the institution is required to define and publish goals for placement
rates. ACICS also publishes standards for campus-level and program-level placement
rates which accredited institutions are expected to meet or exceed. Institutions falling
below Council standards are subject to planning requirements, monitoring, show
cause directives or negative action including loss of program approval, campus
inclusion or institutional accreditation.

The three placement categories are: 1) Based
upon job titles in the list of job titles
published by the institution for which the
program prepares students. 2) Based upon
the required use of skills learned in the
student’s program as a predominant
component of the job. 3) Based upon the
benefit of training received from the program
in obtaining a new position or maintaining a
current position, supporting or improving job
related skills.
ACICS requires institutions to maintain and submit to the
agency upon request, at a minimum the following information
on each student considered to be “placed”
