Student Profiles, Graduation, and Outcomes Data

We believe transparency is critical to enabling prospective students to make informed decisions on which college to attend. The data contained on this page includes information about student outcomes after studying at Make School.

Note that as our Bachelor’s degree program is still very recent, we have supplemented insufficient graduation data with additional information on projected graduation rates, as well as positive job outcomes to give a fuller picture of student outcomes at Make School.

Enrollment Data by Ethnicity/Gender for 2017-19 Cohorts

Projected Graduation Data for 2017-19 Cohorts

Because our Bachelor’s degree program is still young, the following projected graduation data sheds further light on the graduation rates that can be expected between now and 2021 for the last three Make School cohorts.

Positive Job Outcomes

There are many ways to succeed at and after Make School. In addition to calculating our rates of graduation and retention, we also look at metrics that measure whether our alumni are employed. We do so both because student outcomes are important to us and also because it serves to give a clearer picture of the outcomes students can expect from Make School. It also serves to provide more information about our earlier cohorts that initially did not have the option of graduating with a Bachelor’s degree. With that in mind, you can take a look at the data below for the last three Make School cohorts.

Note: For a more detailed breakdown of graduates’ job outcomes, see the Alumni Job Outcomes section below.
