The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Salisbury University

A Maryland University of National Distinction, Salisbury University (SU) ranks highly in national guidebooks and magazines. The Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, for example, name SU a “best value” among public colleges. As a member of the University System of Maryland (USM), SU emphasizes undergraduate research, study abroad, professional internships and community engagement as pillars of its academic experience. Some 8,000 undergraduates study on a beautiful campus that feels like a private college yet provides the opportunities and affordability of a public institution. The foundation of SU’s success is the relationship between students and faculty. Full professors, for example, serve as undergraduate advisors and routinely lead students on trips and retreats, from explorations of the Chesapeake Bay to study tours of Europe and Asia. Their concern for educating the whole student has had measurable results. SU has the fastest time-to-degree average of all comprehensive institutions in the USM and its alumni go on to prestigious medical, professional and graduate programs. Student honors include the Gates Cambridge Scholarship and Fulbright Fellowship.

The SAM Full-time Bachelor's Degree model tracks a group of students who started a bachelor's degree program at Salisbury University in the Fall of 2011. The students' progress toward a degree is reported within 4, 5, and 6 years. The same group of students is included in the results for every year.

The sections of the SAM chart represent the proportion of students in the original group with the following five outcomes.

  • Students who started at and graduated from Salisbury University are represented by the darker purple bar with the solid black bar underneath (). (This section of the chart Within 6 Years is approximately the same as the federal graduation rate, but it may differ slightly for each institution.)
  • Students who started at Salisbury University and then transferred to and graduated from another institution are represented by the lighter purple bar with the white stripe underneath ()
  • Students who started at and are still enrolled at Salisbury University are represented by the darker aqua bar with two white stripes underneath ().
  • Students who started at Salisbury University and then transferred to and are still enrolled at another institution are represented by the lighter aqua bar with the bottom white stripe ().
  • Students from the original group whose status is unknown are represented by the green bar with the top white stripe (). These students may have graduated or still be enrolled somewhere, but their status could not be determined conclusively.
