Program Information

Retention and Placement Rates

John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences publishes Retention and Placement Rates annually, per program of study.  This information is located HERE

Retention information for first-time, undergraduate students is not reported to IPEDS because this information is not applicable for John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences.  All students enrolled at John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences must acquire a minimum of sixty (60) postsecondary education credits prior to matriculating in an RTU program.

“According to the IPEDS Glossary, ‘A student who has no prior postsecondary experience attending any institution for the first time at the undergraduate level.’ This means that the student is first-time in terms of postsecondary education (or the student is not known to have attended another postsecondary institution).  There are two exceptions: (1) students who attended any institution for the first time the summer prior to entering your institution in the fall term are to be counted as “first-time”, as are (2) students who entered with advanced standing (college credits earned before graduation from high school).” (located at https://surveys.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/VisFaqView.aspx?mode=reg&id=5&show=all

Instructional Facilities

John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences offers a hybrid learning environment where both online and on-site instruction is required.  Students receive a secure username and password to access the online campus where they can manage their student account and attend classes.  Students attend course lectures by watching videos that can be viewed any time of day as many times as the student wishes.  Classes also have a required class meeting each week at a scheduled date and time administered as an online meeting.  
On-site instruction is required each semester for one week called boot camp week.  Students come to campus for guest lectures, lectures from faculty, student project presentations, group activities, tests, and lab exercises.

John Patrick University of Health and Applied Sciences’s campus consists of administrative offices, classroom and computer lab space, a lobby and kitchenette area, and a library.  The instructional facility is well-lit, air-conditioned, has free wireless internet, and has adequate seating, computer, and audio visual equipment to provide students with an effective educational environment.
