Sheridan remains first among GTA colleges for graduation rates

Dec 8, 2021

For the second consecutive year, Sheridan scored highest among Greater Toronto Area (GTA) colleges in graduation rates, one of the key metrics in Colleges Ontario’s latest key performance indicators (KPI) survey. 

Sheridan led all GTA colleges in total graduation rate (69.9%), and across several credentials, including degree program graduation rate (79%), two-year diploma program graduation rate (70.9%), and graduate certificate program graduation rate (91%).

Sheridan’s graduation rate within two-year diplomas was particularly notable, sitting over 8% higher than the GTA average and 5% higher than the next closest college. 

“These results further cement Sheridan’s position as a leader in preparing graduates for their applied fields while helping them develop the personal capacity to navigate and thrive on change throughout their lives,” says Sheridan President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Janet Morrison, “and speak to our faculty and staff’s unwavering dedication to students and academic excellence in the face of ongoing volatility.” 

All scores reflect results from the 2020-21 KPI survey, featuring responses from graduates who completed their programs in the 2019-20 academic year. Results from the survey were released later than usual because KPI surveying was paused in 2020 to allow Ontario colleges and the Ministry of Colleges and Universities to focus on the successful delivery of programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The KPI survey has been conducted annually by an independent research company since 1998, when the Ontario government introduced the initiative to collect and report performance data on Ontario colleges. The survey allows colleges to gauge their success and determine areas in which they can improve; provides parents and students with details that help them make informed choices about college education; helps identify current and future workplace needs; and educates taxpayers, government and researchers about performance of the college sector.
