Our G.R.A.D. Standard

Since our founding in 2012, a central part of our mission has been to deliver exceptional student outcomes. That's precisely why we publicly disclose our standards for documenting, auditing, and publishing student outcomes data. It's our responsibility to represent accurate outcomes and give the next generation of students a clear understanding of what they can expect after going through our program.

Our standard, Graduate Results Advertising Directive (G.R.A.D.), is an industry-leading methodology that we created to live up to our promise of honest and transparent reporting.
