Employment Rates: The employment rate is defined as the number of employed persons expressed as a percentage of the labour force where the labour force is those persons who were employed, or unemployed but looking for work. To determine employment rates of recent graduates, Ontario universities conducted a survey of all 2004 graduates of undergraduate degree programs. Graduates were asked questions regarding their employment situation six months and two years after graduation.

Key Performance Indicators
Degree Completion Rate for Undergraduate Cohort, Fall 1997 New, Year 1 Students
Program Graduation Rate (%)
Fine & Applied Arts 55.7
Total new full-time year one undergraduate students enrolled in fall 1997 410.0
Total students reported above who graduated by 2004 241.0
Graduation Rates: The 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 1997 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 (1998 to 2004).

Graduation Rates for Agricultural and Biological Science, Computer Science, Humanities, Mathematics, Other Health Professions, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences and Theology are included in Other Arts & Science.
