Performance Based Funding Metrics


Metric Definitions & Benchmarks


1. Percent of Bachelor's Graduates Enrolled or Employed ($25,000+) in the U.S. One Year After Graduation

This metric is based on the percentage of a graduating class of bachelor’s degree recipients who are enrolled or employed (earning at least $25,000) somewhere in the United States.  Students who do not have a valid social security number and are not found enrolled are excluded. This data now includes non-Florida data from 41 states and districts, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

9. Percent of Bachelor's Degrees Without Excess Hours

This metric is based on the percentage of baccalaureate degrees awarded within 110% of the credit hours required for a degree based on the Board of Governors Academic Program Inventory. Additional Note: It is important to note that the statutory provisions of the “Excess Hour Surcharge” (1009.286, FS) have been modified several times by the Florida Legislature, resulting in a phased-in approach that has created three different cohorts of students with different requirements. The performance funding metric data is based on the latest statutory requirements that mandates 110% of required hours as the threshold. In accordance with the statute, this metric excludes the following types of student credits (eg, accelerated mechanisms, remedial coursework, non-native credit hours that are not used toward the degree, non-native credit hours from failed, incomplete, withdrawn, or repeated courses, credit hours from internship programs, credit hours up to 10 foreign language credit hours, and credit hours earned in military science courses that are part of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program).
