The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $26,934 Books $2,200 Fees $1,440 Total $30,574

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

63%

Median Loan Debt:
Median loan debt represents the median loan debt from Title IV, HEA program loans, and the median loan debt from private educational loans and institutional financing plans incurred by students completing the program. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 30.1701

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

CIP: 52.1201

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%.

The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 13.0101

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return.

Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Median loan debt represents the median loan debt from Title IV, HEA program loans, and the median loan debt from private educational loans and institutional financing plans incurred by students completing the program. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 51.0701

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%.

Bachelor of Arts in History - On-Campus

CIP: 54.0101

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $62,880 Room/board $24,000 Books $4,000 Supplies $600 Fees $2,350 Total $93,830

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 3.0104

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $70,740 Room/board $27,000 Books $4,500 Supplies $675 Fees $2,625 Total $105,540

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return.

CIP: 52.0301

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Professional Accounting Program - On-Campus Tuition $78,600 Room/board $30,000 Books $5,000 Supplies $750 Fees $2,900 Total $117,250

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Median loan debt represents the median loan debt from Title IV, HEA program loans, and the median loan debt from private educational loans and institutional financing plans incurred by students completing the program. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 52.0207

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program.

Bachelor of Arts in Sociology - Online

CIP: 45.1101

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 30.3301

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $48,240 Books $4,000 Fees $1,440 Total $53,680

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks. Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Median Loan Debt:
Median loan debt represents the median loan debt from Title IV, HEA program loans, and the median loan debt from private educational loans and institutional financing plans incurred by students completing the program. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

Select programs may have a normal timeframe of eight or nine semesters, such as those in the College of Education or the BA in Professional Accounting.

The on-time program completion rate represents the percentage of students who completed their program in the referenced financial aid award year (July 1 to June 30) within the normal timeframe for that program out of the total students who completed the program in that year. For example, if 100 students completed a program between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, and 60 of those students finished the program within the normal time for completion, the on-time completion rate would be 60%. If there were no completers in the timeframe referenced, then "N/A" will appear.

CIP: 51.0701

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).*

*US Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences/National Center for Education Statistics website.

Program Costs:
Program costs include the total amount of tuition and fees for completing the program within normal time, the typical costs for books and supplies, and the amount of room and board, if applicable. An explanation of normal time is provided in the on-time completion rate definition below. Program costs are denoted separately for each on-campus traditional program and online program due to the difference in tuition costs between the two modalities.

Tuition $21,060 Books $1,680 Fees $1,440 Total $24,180

On-Time Completion Rate:
The academic calendar for programs offered in the online modality at Ashford University is continuous, rather than defined by semester dates. Normally, students take one course at a time and move to the next course in the program sequence without a break. All courses begin on a Tuesday and end on a Monday five weeks later (undergraduate), or six weeks later (graduate). Opportunities to enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs are available up to 50 Tuesdays throughout the calendar year. There is generally one annual two-week Winter Break when courses are not scheduled. For example, the annual break for 2010-2011 occurred from December 21, 2010 to January 3, 2011.

Thus, the normal time for a full-time undergraduate student to complete a program may be calculated by multiplying the total number of courses in the program by five (5) weeks and adding two (2) weeks for each fifty (50) week period required to complete the program. For example, the normal time for completion of a program that consists of forty (40) classes would be calculated as follows:

40 classes x 5 weeks each = 200 weeks + 8 scheduled break weeks = 208 weeks to complete the program within the normal timeframe.

Prior to July 1, 2011, online students could take a break of up to twenty-nine (29) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program. Beginning July 1, 2011, students may take a break of up to forty-five (45) days between classes without being withdrawn from the program, as long as they provide written confirmation of their intent to return. Any break of this type may affect a student’s ability to complete the program “on-time” as per the methodology above for calculating the on-time program completion rate.

For the on-campus traditional modality, the academic calendar consists of two 16 week semesters per year. As such, the normal timeframe for completion of a bachelor’s program in this modality is four (4) years or 208 weeks.
