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 2014 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.
|Program||Six Months||Two Years|
|Business & Commerce||88.9%||93.98%|
|Other Arts & Sciences||82.76%||87.10%|
|Other Health Professions||*||*|
* For employment rate, sample size of five or fewer individuals.
MTCU 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 2008 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 (2008 to 2015).
Note: To ensure confidentiality, cells representing counts less-than or equal-to 5 are suppressed and displayed as "*".
|Business & Commerce||65.30%|
|Other Arts & Sciences||51.10%|
|Other Health Professions||66.70%|
* For graduation rate, sample size of five or fewer individuals.
OSAP Loan Default Rates
The 2016 default rates reflect the repayment status of students (undergraduate and graduate) who were issued an Ontario Student Loan (OSL) in the 2013/14 academic year and did not receive an OSL in 2014/15. Student loan recipients/defaulters are, for purpose of calculating default rates, assigned to the last institution/program they attended in 2013/14. The status of these loans was assessed as of July 2016 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.
|Business & Commerce||4.3%|
|Fine & Applied Arts||7.6%|
|Other Arts & Sciences||13.2%|
* For OSAP loan rate, sample size of five or fewer individuals.
