Ashford University course completion rates are presented by undergraduate and graduate level courses over time from 2008-2009 through 2012-2013. The completion rates represent the percent of students who completed courses (i.e., earned credit) out of the total number of students who attempted courses.
We measure every course attempted between July 1 and June 30 of each year shown, and consider the course “completed” if a student earned credits for the course. Earning credits requires that a student complete the course with a passing grade. For example, if 1000 students took Psychology 101 and 900 students completed the course with a passing grade, the completion rate would be 90%.
