Per ACEN standards and criteria updated in July 2021, program completion rate calculations begin on the first day of enrollment of a student's first nursing course and end with completion of the course required for conferral of diploma or degree. St. Elizabeth School of Nursing students must complete such requirements within nine (9) consecutive terms (i.e., three regular academic years plus summer source work) beginning with enrollment in their first nursing course to be classified as having graduated "on time." Students who take the traditional 4-year curriculum plan with no summer terms will not be considered as completing "on time" but do/can graduate in 4 years with no summer course work and are considered in the number of students who "ultimately graduated."

Those students who complete such requirements in greater than nine (9) consecutive terms beginning in their first nursing course are classified as having graduated in "additional terms." Students who graduated on time, plus those who graduated in additional terms are combined into the classification of "ultimately graduated."
