Student Success

As an institution accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the University of St. Thomas (UST) is required to provide “statements of its goals for student achievement and the success of students in achieving those goals. Information on student success may include reliable information in retention, graduation, course completion, licensure examinations, and job placement rates and other measures of student success appropriate to institutional mission.”

An important part of our mission is to “educate students to think critically, communicate effectively, succeed professionally, and lead ethically.” We monitor students’ educational access and achievement and performance through a variety of metrics – enrollment; retention rates; graduation rates; degrees awarded; licensure exam pass rates; graduate, medical, and law school acceptance rates; etc.

UST assesses its success with respect to student achievement in relationship to its mission through student retention data, graduation rates, performance on external examinations (including licensing exams), graduation surveys, job placement rates, and acceptance into graduate programs. UST continuously collects data on these variables in order to monitor student success and measure the university’s progression toward achieving its mission.
