Wilmington College Disclosure Policies

The Higher Education Opportunity Act, reauthorized in 2008 added additional provisions for which higher education institutions must provide public disclosure. Many of the required updates are related to the Student Right To Know Act (enacted 11/9/90) which allows for students and their families to have Consumer Information available prior to enrolling in the college. The Institutional Effectiveness Office has put together some of the required disclosures here on this website. Other consumer information can be found in the Student Handbook and other areas of our website. The Institutional Effectiveness Office collaborates with several departments on campus in order to meet the mandates; however, the Institutional Effectiveness Office is not the sole owner of the data or the disclosures. The data provided in disclosures may be part of a larger body of data and may be found in additional areas on our website. If you are seeking a specific disclosure, and you cannot locate it please contact the Institutional Effectiveness Office at

Student Outcomes

Employment, Graduate School, Graduation & Retention Stats

Wilmington College has an average retention rate of 67%. This statistic measures the fall-to-fall (3rd semester; sometimes called first-to-second year) retention of first-time full-time freshmen. In other words, about 2/3 of new freshmen come back for their sophomore year. These students have an average graduation rate of 46% in 4 years and 53% after 6 years.

In the 2023 six-month alumni follow-up survey that concluded in early December, 90% of respondents indicated that they were employed. When asked if the position is “directly related” to their “degree area and career goals,” 68% responded in the affirmative. There were 22% who indicated enrollment in graduate school, and 19% who said that they are doing volunteer work in the community on a regular basis, results that are in line with the institution’s mission to “prepare students for a life of service and success”. A careful analysis of the subsequent enrollment data provided by the National Student Clearinghouse shows that 119 of the 789 alumni (17%) who graduated between December 2020 and August 2023 have enrolled for at least one semester of graduate school or in a professional program.

The VPAA and Director of Institutional Effectiveness launched an alumni data initiative in the summer of 2019 using Live Alumni software used by the Advancement department. Live Alumni software is an innovative platform that is usually used in the world of fundraising.  They are a leading provider of employment data - captured in real-time from public social profiles for prospecting, engagement and data enrichment. We used the software in LinkedIn to capture alumni information on employment and graduate school placement. Of the 1,342 graduates of WC from 2015-2019, 429 were identified as employed in LinkedIn. Further analysis revealed that of the 429 graduates in LinkedIn, 70.4% (n=302) were employed in their field of study. 14% (n=188) were currently pursuing or graduated from a graduate program. Further analysis and tracking by semester is planned. Other analysis included review of employment and graduate school placement by major. Highlights include 94% of Business majors from main campus are employed in their field, 71% of Education majors and Agriculture majors are employed in their field, 61% of Sport Management majors are employed in their field. The program with the highest graduate school placement was Athletic Training with 29% of the identified graduates on Linked in pursuing or graduated from a graduate program, followed by Education at 21%. Only 8% of or agriculture major graduates are pursuing or graduated from a graduate program.  Our Blue Ash campus business major graduates indicated 70% are employed in their field, and 76% of our business major graduates at our degree completion program at Cincinnati State are employed in the field.
