Standardization of Policy and Procedures Training 10/7/14 Updated on 1/14/15
AGENDA TOPICS: ACICS Expectations and Requirements ◦ CAR Reporting Adoption of a standardized Career Services Procedures Manual and Forms. Training on the definition of placements and waivers, and required documents to be collected to support these statuses Training on how data is to be entered into CampusVue. ◦ Placement status or waiver may not be entered into CampusVue until all required supporting documentation is obtained. Verification of employment reported by an outside servicer. Importance of Graduate and Employer Surveys. ◦ Graduate surveys are intended for students who are employed and those seeking employment, so they can evaluate the education provided as it relates to the skills required to be successful on the job. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SIUGraduateSurvey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SIUGraduateSurvey ◦ Employer Survey “Survey Monkey Link” https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SIUEmployerSatisfactionSurvey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SIUEmployerSatisfactionSurvey ◦ Due 30 days after date of hire. New Monthly reporting requirements and deadlines Survey Participation Chart ◦ Tabulation of survey results by program, and by Graduate versus employer.
Compliance Standards – Compliance standards are intended to ensure that a substantial majority of students at ACICS-accredited campuses are retained, pass licensure exams where applicable, and find employment related to their fields. A campus whose rates fall below the Compliance Standard must come into compliance within established timeframes or its grant of accreditation may be withdrawn. A program whose rates fall below the Compliance Standard must come into compliance within established timeframes, or approval for inclusion of the program within the campus’s grant of accreditation may be withdrawn. A campus whose retention or placement rate falls below the Compliance Standard must seek prior approval (by means of a waiver) in order to apply for approval of a new program.
2013 Reporting Year – ACICS adopted enhanced student achievement standards in July 2012, effective for the 2013 reporting period and beyond, as described in the table below. 1 Where licensure is required for employment. 2 Must also meet applicable agency standards
Campus and Institutional Effectiveness Plans. For the Campus Effectiveness Plan, the following six elements, at a minimum, will be evaluated for institutional effectiveness: ◦ 1. student retention rates; ◦ 2. student placement rates; ◦ 3. level of graduate satisfaction; ◦ 4. level of employer satisfaction; ◦ 5. student learning outcomes; and ◦ 6. graduation rates [when available]. ◦ NOTE: 4 of the 6 elements responsibilities reside, in part, with Career Services!
Student Achievement Review. The Council reviews the Campus Accountability Report (CAR) and Institutional Accountability Report (IAR) to monitor performance in terms of student achievement at both the campus and program levels. Measures will include retention; placement; and licensure, registration or certification pass rates, if applicable. Each campus shall publish annual placement and retention goals. In formulating these goals, the campus shall take into account the retention and placement rates from the previous three Campus Accountability Reports and the specific activities that will be undertaken to meet those goals. The activities must demonstrate the campus’ ability to maintain or improve retention and placement outcomes each year.
3‑1‑440−Student Services Follow- up studies on graduates and employer satisfaction shall be conducted by all institutions at specific measuring points following placement of the graduate. 0 (c) Institutions shall provide employment assistance and document activity. An institution shall not guarantee employment or the starting salary of its graduates. Follow- up studies on graduates and employer satisfaction shall be conducted by all institutions at specific measuring points following placement of the graduate. All institutions that use placement percentages or salary projections as part of their recruiting activities shall maintain data on all graduates, including the percentage receiving jobs and the percentage receiving jobs in the career field for which they were trained. Institutions also should keep data on students who do not graduate but who become employed on their own or with the institution’s assistance.
Outcomes. The effectiveness of an institution is determined by its outcomes. In determining effectiveness, institutions are required to evaluate the following outcomes: placement rates (in field, related field); graduate pass rates relative to minimum quantitative standards for state licensing examinations; employer satisfaction as determined by periodic surveys of those who employ graduates; graduate satisfaction as determined by periodic surveys of graduates; and student satisfaction as determined by periodic surveys of current students. Institutions also may use additional outcomes in evaluating effectiveness.
Placement Rate. The placement rate is a required element of the Campus Effectiveness Plan (see Section of the Accreditation Criteria). The Placement Rate is defined by ACICS in terms of the total number of completers and graduates minus those who are not placed (employed) in their field of study or a related field of study, divided by the total number of completers and graduates. The placement rate is calculated at both the program and campus levels, based upon data submitted for the annual Campus Accountability Report (CAR) and according to the detailed formula and terms defined in the Guidelines and Instructions for the Campus Accountability Report, which is available on the ACICS website. The detailed formula includes definitions of in field and related field placement, adjustments, and exclusions for students not available for placement. Three years of placement rate data are required in the CEP, and the institution is required to define and publish goals for placement rates. ACICS also publishes standards for campus-level and program-level placement rates which accredited institutions are expected to meet or exceed. Institutions falling below Council standards are subject to planning requirements, monitoring, show cause directives or negative action including loss of program approval, campus inclusion or institutional accreditation.
The three placement categories are: 1) Based upon job titles in the list of job titles published by the institution for which the program prepares students. 2) Based upon the required use of skills learned in the student’s program as a predominant component of the job. 3) Based upon the benefit of training received from the program in obtaining a new position or maintaining a current position, supporting or improving job related skills.

If no longer employed- as long as they were placed and it can be verified then you do not have to post this information unless the graduate has a better job to post.
Upon receipt of a completed Non-Traditional Employment Update or Graduate Employment Update with employment information, the Career Services Advisor must verify employment with both the student and employer and then scan documentation to our Third Party Consultant (TPC) Tiffany Badger. The TPC will complete an additional verification for compliance and accuracy of reporting.
