Job and Graduate School Placement

Davis College Recent Graduate Ministry / Career Status

Of the graduates from the previous three years (graduating classes of 2010, 2011, 2012) with whom we have contact (127 graduates), 45% of them (57 graduates) are currently employed in full-time or part-time ministry that is directly or indirectly related to their training received at Davis College, or are pursuing further ministry related graduate education, building upon the education they received at Davis College.

Retention and Graduation Rates

Retention rates measure the percentage of first-time students who are seeking degrees who return to the institution to continue their studies the following fall semester.  85% of the Fall 2011 full-time freshman class returned the following fall semester in 2012.  Davis College experiences a high retention rate, which can be attributed to many factors, including the close-knit community which many students describe as “a second family” or “a home away from home.”

See information regarding Student Satisfaction as recorded by the Noel-Levitz Survey administered every other academic year.

Graduation rates are reported annually by the college in accordance with the “Student Right to Know” Act.  This rate is based on the progress of students who began their studies as full-time, first-time, degree- or certificate-seeking students and completed their programs of study within 150 percent of “normal time” for their selected programs.  The college does not limit the amount of time it takes for a student to complete a program of study.  Many students choose to extend or even post-pone the program length due to various reasons pertaining to employment, family, or overall academic goals.  The 2012 Spring graduation rate for the 2006 Fall full-time, first-time freshman entering class was 48%.  Often former students who chose to interrupt their programs of study return to Davis College as re-admitted students so that they may complete their academic goals.
