oThe Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) taxonomic coding scheme was developed in 1980 by the National Center for Education Statistics to facilitate the organization, collection, and reporting of fields of study and program completions. The CIP titles and program descriptions are intended to be generic categories into which program completions data can be placed, not exact duplicates of a specific major or field of study titles used by individual institutions. This institution’s programs generally are intended to provide training for occupations associated with multiple CIP codes and each program’s graduates generally occupy a wide variety of positions both following graduation and within a few years. The purpose of this particular program is to train an individual for management positions in a technical field; it thus is assumed that graduates will work in a variety of technical fields. However, the institution is required to choose one CIP code and believes that a code of 52.0201 is the best representation of expected occupations. The institution also is required to list the following occupations (by name and Standard Occupational Classification—or SOC—code) that the O*NET crosswalk identifies as a representative sample of identified, entry-level occupations for completers of a program with a CIP code of 52.0201.
11-1011.00 Chief Executives
11-1011.03 Chief Sustainability Officers
11-1021.00 General and Operations Managers

25-1011.00 Business Teachers, Postsecondary
The institution notes that, due to the nature of CIP codes and SOC codes, this list of representative occupations may be expected to comprise a subset of actual graduates’ occupations; further, graduates may or may not work in each of these listed occupations.
o The on-time graduation rate as defined by the U.S. Department of Education for students who completed the program between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 is 96%. The definition is the percentage of graduates that completed the program within the normal timeframe. The normal timeframe is determined by the number of credits a student is required to take when the student begins his upper division coursework and an assumption of nine credits per semester.
o The placement rates as of October 31, 2012 for graduates between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 and as reported to ACICS was 91%. More graduates may have been placed subsequently, as may be shown elsewhere on this site.
o Tuition and fees charged for completing the program within the normal time for students who start the program between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 consists of the total of (a) the tuition and fees for the specialized associate degree program in the student’s technical major plus (b) a range of $20,010 to $23,650, assuming an additional 17-20 courses. (Note that financial aid is available for those who qualify and the net price paid may be materially less; please visit www.hickeycollege.edu/aid.)
o The typical costs for books and supplies for completing the program within the normal time for students who start the programs between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 are expected—as of the fall of 2012—to be approximately $1,780 plus the expected cost for books in the specialized associate degree program in the student’s technical major. Note that this estimate for upper-division book costs is based on a typical number of credits required.
o Potential applicants may find the following information at www.hickeycollege.edu/catalog.pdf: institutional accreditation; contact information for accrediting agencies and state licensing/approval agencies; admissions policies and practices; policies on transfer of credits to and from the institution; policies and processes for withdrawal and for refunds of tuition/fees; and additional consumer information.
o For graduates between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012, median federal loan debt was $24,810, median private loan debt was zero, and median institutional loan debt was zero.
