If you have difficulty connecting with graduates for placement verification, you’re not alone. From a recent poll we hosted of a sample of proprietary schools, we found that most institutions spend a significant amount of time in contact attempts to graduates.
Often, graduates may have changed their primary form of contact. When accreditation and Title IV funding hang in the balance, not having the correct information is frustrating.
- 62% of our sample said that it was difficult to verify employment for graduates 15-25% of the time.
- 32% said that it was difficult to verify employment for graduates 25-50% of the time.
- 3% said that it was difficult to verify employment for graduates greater than 50% of the time.
- 3% said that it was difficult to verify employment for graduates 0-15% of the time.
If verifying employment for graduates in a timely manner is an area of concern, download your Verification Playbook to gain insight on how to improve contact rates and increase accuracy.
