KPI Survey results highlight continued student success at Sheridan

April 20, 2016

The Ontario Colleges’ Key Performance Indicators (KPI) survey results were released today, and once again, Sheridan achieved high scores on several key measures that reflect the institution’s commitment to student success.

With an overall graduation rate of 69.3%, Sheridan continues to exceed the provincial average, a result that is even more marked in its degree programs, which achieved a graduation rate of 76.9% - well above the provincial average of 67.5%, and in line with the average for Ontario universities. Sheridan’s graduation rate for diplomas, advanced diplomas and one-year post graduate programs outranked all other colleges in the Greater Toronto Area.

A look at graduate employment data also reveals a high rate of success for Sheridan degree graduates, who experienced an 85% employment rate.  Most importantly, survey results showed a high level of student satisfaction with the education they were experiencing at Sheridan, based on specific criteria.  Over 86% of students surveyed indicated that they were satisfied that they were gaining the knowledge and skills necessary for their future careers, while over 80% were pleased with the overall quality of the learning experiences in their programs. 

The KPI survey was introduced by the Ontario government in 1998 to collect and report performance data on Ontario colleges.  The survey is conducted by an independent research company.
