For Students

Post-Graduate Survey

Southwestern University graduates successfully launch their post-graduate lives in many diverse directions: continuing their education in graduate and professional school, securing employment, and volunteering their time and talent. The Center for Career & Professional Development’s annual Post-Graduate Survey reports on these first-destination outcomes.

About the Survey

Data collection begins in April prior to May Commencement and continues through the following March, usually resulting in a 95-99 percent response rate.  Surveys are emailed to graduating seniors in April, hard copies of surveys are collected at Commencement in May, follow-up emails are sent in October, Phonathon calling takes place in November and February, and continued phone calls and emails round out the data collection in early March.

The resultant aggregated data includes information about percentage working or going to school, locations, a sampling of employers and graduate programs, salaries, and internship information.  For questions or more detailed information please contact pirate2pro@southwestern.edu .
