2017-2018

The College of Education Department of Teacher Education (DTE) definition of graduation rate is based on when students enter the Teacher Education Program (TEP) and then, when they graduate. According to IPEDS, the Troy University graduation rate for full time, first-time degree or certification seeking undergraduates within 150% of normal time to program completion for 2017-2018 is 39%. DTE had a rolling admission policy prior to the 2017-2018 establishment of the cohort model.

Based on a recent Alabama State department of Education (ALSDE) mandate, Troy’s cohorts officially began in fall, 2016. Our first full cohort graduated in the 2017-2018 academic year, with a fall, 2017, total Class B and Alt A graduation rate of 150%. The spring, 2018, total Class B and Alt A graduation rate was 89%. While students are strongly encouraged to remain with the cohort many students do not for various reasons. In addition, many students have difficulty passing exams and may not graduate until the following semester or two. If our average was in the 40 percentile for 2016-2017, then it is assumed many of those students graduated in 2017-2018 accounting for the high graduation rate. 

IPEDS link for Graduation Data

2017-2018

Of 192 graduates only 1 did not meet  licensing (certification) and any additional state requirements due to the ALSDE GPA requirement.

Each candidate completes the state approved checklist for their particular program. Based on the recommendation to ALSDE, derived from the completion of the R & R/Review & Recommendation for Application Based on Completion of an Alabama Class B Program and the Supplemental NA1/Recommendation for Certification forms, all but one of our completers met the requirements for licensure by the State of Alabama. That one student graduated, but was not eligible for licensure due to the ALSDE GPA requirement.
