Employment Rates - University Graduate Survey

To determine employment rates of recent graduates, Ontario universities conducted a survey of all 2004 graduates of Bachelors or First Professional degree programs. Graduates were asked questions regarding their employment situation at 6 months and 2 years after graduation.

The employment rate is defined as the number of employed persons, including full-time and part-time employment, expressed as a percentage of the labour force where the labour force is those persons who were employed, or unemployed but looking for work.

Graduation Rates

 

Graduation Rates: The MAESD 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 1998 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 2005).

OSAP Loan Default Rates

The 2006 default rates reflect the repayment status of students (undergraduate and graduate) who were issued an Ontario Student Loan (OSL) in the 2003/04 academic year and did not receive an OSL in 2004/05. Student loan recipients/defaulters are, for purpose of calculating default rates, assigned to the last institution/program they attended in 2003/04. The status of these loans was assessed as of July 2006 or about two years after entering into repayment.

An Ontario Student Loan is in default when the Ontario government has paid a bank's claim for an inactive loan. A loan is inactive when no payments were made by the student for at least 90 days.
