Graduate Survey Summary - Undergraduate Level Programs

Survey Method:
Graduate survey data is collected three times per year at or near the end of each semester/term. Based on a list of FY09 graduates (including names, addresses, and phone numbers) provided by the Registrar, the Office of Planning and Decision Resources, and the Alumni Relations Office, the Career Services staff contacted each student receiving an undergraduate degree in FY09, utilizing the following methods:

  • Attendance at various departmental events and cap and gown issuance at Barnes and Noble, during which time graduate surveys are completed by potential graduates as a method of gathering pre-graduation data regarding employment status
  • An initial mailing (approximately six to eight weeks following graduation) to each graduate, which includes a letter of introduction and explanation, the Graduate Survey, and a return self-addressed envelope to facilitate a better return rate
  • Approximately three to six months following graduation, phone calls are made to graduates who have not yet responded to the Graduate Survey, in an effort to reach a higher percentage of FY09 graduates, as well as to update graduates' employment statistics

**Final Results:

  • Total number of undergraduate degrees (1st or primary degrees only) awarded in FY09: 1584
  • Total number of FY09 graduates who responded to the Graduate Survey as of December 2009: 1157 (73%)
  • Of the 1,157 graduates who responded to the survey:
    • 454 (39%) are enrolled in graduate/professional school
    • 628 (54%) are employed
    • 11 (1%) are unemployed, but not seeking employment
    • 1,093 (94%) are satisfactorily occupied

    • 1,157 Total number of FY09 graduates who responded to the survey
