    Class of 2019 Dashboard
    Detailed outcomes data for bachelor’s and master’s degree students is available on the Class of 2019 Dashboard.

    The dashboard includes outcomes by:

    • Region
    • Control
    • Carnegie Classification
    • Size of School
    • Academic Program

    The report for the college Class of 2019 provides information about where graduates at the undergraduate and graduate levels land within six months of graduation.

    New graduate outcomes include various types of employment (full or part time, contract, temporary), additional education, entrance into the military or other service, still seeking—either employment or further education—and not seeking employment/education.

    The report also provides starting salary data for those employed full time.

    Overall, we received responses from 358 schools/career centers detailing results for their 2019 graduates in four degree programs—349 schools reported outcomes for the bachelor’s degree; 64 schools for their associate degree completers; 174 schools provided information for those completing a master’s degree program; and 98 institutions reported results for doctoral degree recipients.

    In total, the graduating classes of these reporting institutions represent nearly 730,000 graduates—550,000 at the bachelor’s degree level; 140,000 at the master’s level; 20,000 at the doctoral level; and 19,000 at the associate level.

    This translates to results for:

    • 27.7% of all bachelor’s degree graduates;
    • 16.8% of all master’s degree graduates;
    • 10.7% of all doctoral degree graduates; and
    • 6.4% of all associate degree graduates.

    To our knowledge, this represents the most comprehensive view of graduate outcomes currently available.

    Note: The full report, including outcomes for associate and doctoral degree graduates, will be available later this month. Detailed outcomes for bachelor’s and master’s are now available through the Class of 2019 Dashboard.
