Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities - 2008/09 Key Performance Indicators

In response to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities' requirement that institutions make data regarding employment ratesgraduation rates, and OSAP default rates available for students, the University of Windsor is posting these three indicators.

The data is published in 26 program categories of which the University of Windsor has programs in 15 categories. Other Arts and Science includes students enrolled in General Arts and Science majors not specified by other categories or unspecified. Kinesiology, Recreation, Physical Education also includes students enrolled in programs in non-teaching fields. Other Health Professions includes students enrolled in Basic Medical Science programs, Medical Specialties, Paraclinical Sciences, Epidemiology and Public Health, and Medical Technology. (Medical Interns have been excluded).

To maintain adequate confidentiality in light of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, information has not been shown in instances where the number of students is five or fewer.


Employment Rates - University Graduate Survey

To determine employment rates of recent graduates, Ontario universities conducted a survey of all 2006 graduates of Bachelors or First Professional degree programs. Graduates were asked questions regarding their employment situation at 6 months and 2 years after graduation.

The employment rate is defined as the number of employed persons, including full-time and part-time employment, expressed as a percentage of the labour force where the labour force is those persons who were employed, or unemployed but looking for work.

Graduation Rates

Graduation Rates: The MAESD has calculated graduation rates using a single entering cohort of students and determining whether or not they graduated within seven years. The methodology employed involves the selection of all new full-time, Year One undergraduate students on the official Fall 2000 enrolment file, who have a valid (and unique) student ID number, and were seeking either a bachelors or first professional degree. The subset was then matched against the records for students who received a degree (in any program) from the same institution during the most current seven year period (2000 to 2007).

OSAP Loan Default Rates

The 2008 default rates reflect the repayment status of students (undergraduate and graduate) who were issued an Ontario Student Loan (OSL) in the 2005/06 academic year and did not receive an OSL in 2006/07. Student loan recipients/defaulters are, for purpose of calculating default rates, assigned to the last institution/program they attended in 2005/06. The status of these loans was assessed as of July 2008 or about two years after entering into repayment.

An Ontario Student Loan is in default when the Ontario government has paid a bank's claim for an inactive loan. A loan is inactive when no payments were made by the student for at least 90 days.
