STUDENT achievement DATA

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is committed to ensuring quality higher education for students. As part of this commitment, USU participates in an annual data reporting process that tracks student achievement, known as the Annual Institutional Update (AIU). This data helps us understand our students' success, follow trends year-over-year, and identify areas needing improvement. We are committed to using this information to continuously enhance the educational experience we provide. At the link below you will find data outlining our students' demographics and success based on metrics provided to MSCHE in our AIU.
