Course Completion Rate
Course completions rates are an important measure to determine the achievement of students. The faculty members in each academic department or division in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Pharmacy have identified specific courses for each academic program that they have determined measure student achievement in their discipline. Since these courses are predominantly at the upper level, it was decided that a pass rate of 90% would be used for undergraduate courses and 95% would be used for graduate and pharmacy courses. It should be noted that a course is considered “completed” only if a student received an A, B, C, or P in the course. Course Completion Rates for the graduating classes are listed below:

2012 - 2013  99.6%
2013 - 2014  98.3%
2014 - 2015  99.4%
2015 - 2016  99.5%
2016 - 2017  100%
