School Merrillville NACCAS requires schools to list the outcome rates also
by a related program. The U.S. Department of Education requires outcome

outcome rates, please see our Admissions Team for assistance.
On-time completion is defined by the U.S. Department of Education as anyone
who graduates within the normal completion time. When a student completes
their graduation requirements, including all theory and practical
assignments, and the required number of clock hours without missing any
time, that student is considered to have graduated on-time. If a student
misses any time for any reason, such as family responsibilities, day care
issues, and other life events, they are not considered an on-time graduate.
The school’s on-time graduation rate is listed on each course paged under
Gainful Employment. Please note that our graduation rates that are provided
in the school catalog are based on how many students started the program
and how many completed within the reporting period.

In order to pay for the cost of education, many of our students apply for student loans through the U.S. Department of Education or through private institutions. Student loans go into repayment after a student leaves school. The median loan debt refers to the amount of money the typical student owes once they have graduated from their program of study. Private Education Loan debt is loans obtained from a bank or credit union. Institutional financing is money owed directly to the school upon completion of the program.
