3. Graduation Rate
Who is considered a completed student? Who is considered a graduate?
A “completer” is a student who is no longer enrolled at Florida Vocational Institute and has either completed the time allowed or has completed the graduation requirements for their medical field program. A completer may also be classified as a “graduate” if they meet all of the following criteria:
- Has achieved a GPA of 2.0 or greater at graduation.
- Has successfully passed all required courses in the program.
- Has satisfied all other requirements for graduation such as payment of tuition.
- Has received the appropriate credentials.
- Ceased enrollment in the program at the institution.
How are graduation rates calculated?
Graduation rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. These statistics track all first-time, full-time diploma seeking students who began school during the start date range and reached program completion within the normal time period or normal program length. The graduation rate is the percentage of first-time, full-time students who have completed their program within the normal time period or normal program length.
*The Institution did not report any first-time full-time undergraduate students in the cohort year; therefore, graduation information was not reported via the IPEDS website.
4. Placement Rate
What is the placement rate for graduates of your institution?
Placement rates vary depending on the methods of compiling, calculating, and reporting of data by the regulatory agency or institution. Placement rates are intended to provide information on the number of students who have obtained employment in their field of study after graduation. The rates disclosed below reflect historical outcomes and should not be relied on by anyone as an implicit or explicit representation or promise of future outcomes or employability for any student following completion of a program of study at Florida Vocational Institute. Numerous individual and market factors affect a graduate’s ability to secure employment in his/her field or in a related field after graduation, and the institution has little or no control over many of these factors. Therefore, Florida Vocational Institute cannot and does not guarantee employment or estimate the likelihood of securing employment upon graduation for any student.
The graduation and placement program data reported in the institution’s 2018 Annual Report filed with the Council on Occupational Education (COE) is for the reporting period of 7/1/2017 – 6/30/2018.
Completion and Placement rates: July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018

The Student Right-to-Know Act requires an institution that participates in any student financial assistance program under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended) to disclose information about graduation rates to current and prospective students.
The 2014 Cohort Completion Rate for first-time students in full-time programs at Florida Vocational Institute, Miami, Florida is 74.26%. This rate is based on the 202 students who started their program between September 1, 2014, and August 31, 2015. Of the 202 students who started their programs, 150 students completed their program within 150% of the normal completion time. Please refer to the institution’s catalog for the normal completion time of each program.
The Student Right to Know graduation rate is calculated at the school level. There is one rate for the entire school, not a rate for each specific program. The most recent graduation and placement rates for this school are provided on the school’s website under the consumer information tab. The graduation and placement rate information is derived from the school’s annual report to the agency that accredits the school. To access this information please go to http://www.FVI.edu.
