Key Performance Indicators for Private Career Colleges

Under the authority of the Ontario Career Colleges Act, 2005, the Superintendent of Ontario Career Colleges issued a policy directive setting out five PCC KPIs:

* Graduation Rate
* Graduate Employment Rate
* Graduate Employment Rate in Field of Study
* Graduate Satisfaction Rate
* Employer Satisfaction Rate

Graduation rate is calculated from audited data submitted by PCCs three times per year. The other four KPIs are calculated from surveys taken by graduates and their employers. The ministry also calculates Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) loan default rates for PCCs approved to accept OSAP-assisted students, which are also considered a performance indicator for the sector.

Published 2013 results included graduation rate, graduate employment rate, graduate employment rate in field of study and loan default rates. Graduate and employer satisfaction rates have also be published, beginning with 2014 results.

For the 2013 and 2014 cycles, only PCCs with OSAP-approved programs were required to participate in the KPI process. All PCCs have been included since the 2015 cycle.
