Graduation and Employment Outcomes


Epicodus reports its graduation and employment outcomes using the CIRR methodology, an industry-wide standard for reporting student outcomes. CIRR is the only standard that:

  • accounts for 100% of enrolled students;
  • does not exclude any graduates when calculating outcomes percentages;
  • allows outcomes numbers to be compared across schools.

As a CIRR member school, you can be sure that the numbers below are fair and honest, and you can compare our students' outcomes to other CIRR schools. If you're considering attending a non-CIRR school, be aware that their numbers are not directly comparable to ours, and they may be excluding students and omitting data. For more information on why Epicodus is a founding member of CIRR and has agreed to use consistent and transparent metrics, see our blog post.
