thumb_ICCI(GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS) – The International College of the Cayman Islands is celebrating another year of achievement in job placement performance of its graduates. The College’s international accrediting agency, The Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools, has released results of the 2014 Campus Accountability Report.

According to ACICS, ICCI’s overall job placement rate for graduates last year was 93 percent. ACICS requires each accredited institution to achieve a minimum placement rate of 65 percent each year. The Master of Science in Management, The Master of Business Administration, The Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies, and The Bachelor of Human and Social Services each had a 100 percent placement rate.

“We are very proud of these outcomes. This achievement is really a testament to our talented faculty and staff who work with our students to make them job ready,” said Dr. David Marshall, ICCI President.

CAR Report 2014The CAR also measures retention rates of academic programs. Retention reflects the number of students who started an academic program and are still enrolled in the following year. ACICS requires institutions to have a minimum overall retention rate of 65 percent. The International College’s campus level retention rate is 76 percent. One program, the A.S. in General Studies fell below the minimum benchmark. The eight other programs exceeded the standard.

“For one academic program, we have some more work to do in terms of making sure that more students actually earn the degree they intended to when they first enrolled,” said Marshall. “It is tough for many of our students to earn a degree as most of them work
full-time and have families. Some students are also struggling to pay for college. It is heartbreaking when a student drops out of ICCI because of the inability to pay tuition. This is why we are aggressively out asking the business community to support scholarships,” Marshall said.

ACICS requires accredited institutions to report annually achievements in retention, placement and licensure pass rates in the CAR. The reporting year was from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014. Institutions submit the CAR to ACICS each November. ACICS then reviews the CAR, verifies the data, and issues the CAR report.
