Loyalist College exceeds the provincial average in all five KPIs

Provincial Key Performance Indicator (KPI) results released on September 25, 2019 reinforce the strength of college education as an effective route into the workforce. The research shows that 88.5 percent of 2017-18 Loyalist College graduates were employed within six months after graduation, compared to the provincial average of 86.2 percent for Ontario’s 24 colleges.

The College has a strong tradition in graduate employment – Loyalist grads have always achieved high placement rates relative to the college system, and once again this year our results are above the provincial average. 

Other KPI results show that Loyalist placed above the provincial average for all five annual KPIs, including graduate satisfaction (80.5 percent vs. 79.9 percent), employer satisfaction (91.1 percent vs. 89.6 percent), student satisfaction (80.9 percent vs. 75.7 percent) and graduation rate (68.3 percent vs. 67.2 percent).
