Explanation: NTID's goal is to maintain a student body of 1,080 undergraduates, 100 Education Interpreters, and 75 Graduate/Master's in Special Education. The Education Interpreter Program enrollment has not met it's target for the last several years primarily due to more rigorous entrance requirements since the program was elevated to a bachelor's level program. With more aggressive recruitment, the institute is confident that the Educational Interpreter Program enrollment will increase, but more slowly than originally anticipated.

Explanation: Placement rate data is reported the year after graduation. NTID has established a minimum placement rate of graduates entering the workforce at 95 percent. The Institute believes that a 95 percent placement rate represents an appropriate ongoing target, but economic conditions have deteriorated to a point where it is affecting students' ability to find permanent placement. The placement rates are calculated as the percentage of graduates who are employed amoung those who want to be employed. Those individuals who continue their education or who are not seeking employment, for whatever reasons, in the respective years, are not included. The Bureau of Labor Statistics uses this same methodology.
