First Destination Survey

Every year recent graduates are encouraged to take a First Destination Survey which determines the employment status of our graduates. The results from this survey is compiled into a total career outcome rate. Historically, these rates have exceeded 90 percent or better. Recently, that rate has averaged 95 percent or higher. 

Did you graduate in August 2020, December 2020 or April 2021?

Please take a few minutes to complete the most recent First Destination Survey.
