(a) For purposes of reporting enrollment data, persistence data and graduation data, a cohort is defined as the group of students who commenced attendance at the qualifying institution at any point during an academic year. Once assigned to a particular cohort upon initial enrollment, the student remains in that cohort for the duration of his or her attendance at the institution, or until the student completes his or her program, certificate or degree. Any student who completes his or her program, certificate or degree and pursues a new program, certificate or degree at the same qualifying institution would be assigned to the academic year cohort applicable to the subsequent enrollment.

(b) For purposes of reporting the job placement rate and salary and wage data, a cohort is defined as the group of students who graduated with a certificate, diploma or degree at any point during an academic year. Once assigned to a particular cohort upon graduation, the student remains in that cohort for the duration of institution's reporting obligation.
