The CAR report contains program-level and campus-level data and is used to monitor performance in terms of student achievement at both levels. Measures include retention; placement; graduation; and licensure examination pass rates, if applicable.  





Online Submission of Reports
All accredited main and additional location campuses which were accredited during the reporting period (July 1 through June 30) are required to file the Campus Accountability Report and supporting documentation online. 

Retention and Placement Information
ACICS will determine average retention and placement rates annually for campuses, based on information collected in the Campus Accountability Report and will provide this data to all accredited campuses in the Key Operating Statistics (KOS) report. 

Student Achievement Review

Campuses whose retention or placement rates fall below the ACICS compliance standard are restricted from beginning a new program and/or a non-main location without first securing permission from ACICS.
