Additional Student Statistics FAQ’s

Q: What constitutes a Graduated Student?
A: A student must receive a passing grade to graduate.  This Graduation Grade Requirement is calculated as follows:

  • 60% Systems Check Performance
  • 40% Career Preparation

Q: What constitutes a Job Seeker?
A: A job seeker is defined as someone who enters the program with expressed intent of acquiring a paid position following graduation. In order to maintain eligibility as a Job Seeker, following successful completion of the program, the student must attend both Career Kickoff events (if seeking a job in their cohort’s city) and achieve a passing grade in the Post-Grad Support phase of the program.  The loss of Job Seeker status due to a failing Post-Grad Support grade is permanent.
