DMII is an equal opportunity educator. It is expected that every student and faculty member will be treated with respect and professionalism. The school will not tolerate harassment of individuals for any reason including, but not limited to, harassment based upon race, color, religion, age, sex, gender, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, sexual preference, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, medical condition, union or nonunion affiliation, marital status, veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law or ordinance.

These statements are in accordance with the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and Regulations of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued pursuant to these statutes at Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 80, 84, and 91. Prior to acceptance to the program, it is the student’s obligation to inform the DMII administration of any condition that would inhibit the student’s ability to successfully participate in and or limit the student’s potential for success in the program so that reasonable accommodations can be made.

Definition of Placement

Definition of Placement

DMII uses the Council on Occupational Education (COE) placement rate methodology. The COE definition of a placement is: a completer of the program (1) who is employed in their field of study or related field for which trained or (2) has entered military or decided to continue their education. Placement includes full or part-time positions with an employer or self-employment in the field of study or related field.

COE calculates placement rates as follows:

Total Completers Employed in Positions Related to Field of Instruction / ((Total Completers) – (Graduate Completers Waiting To Take Licensure Exam + Graduate Completers who are Awaiting Results + Graduate Completers Unavailable for Employment + Graduate Completers Who Refused Employment))

Placement rate exemptions (categories of students which are excluded from the placement rate calculation) include: pregnancy, other serious health-related issues, caring for ill family members, death, etc. Exemptions who refused employment are completers for whom the institution has documented evidence that the completers failed to keep interview appointments, enrolled in the program of instruction strictly for personal use, or simply refused an employment offer in the field of instruction.
