There were 1,152 graduates from Associate in Science programs, 781 awards from Vocational Certificate programs, and 71 awards from College Credit Certificate programs. Of the graduates found, there were 27 programs with 100% of graduates placed. Thirty programs had an 80%-99% placement rate and 4 programs had a placement rate of 75%.
