Five Year Graduate Survey Results 2010–2014

Recently, CCAC has made changes to the graduate tracking system. These changes are allowing us to collect a substantially larger amount of data by increasing the amount of surveying we do at additional time points. Because of this, we are able to produce data tables that are more current than they have been in the past. It is possible for previous trends reported in these tables to shift with the increase in responses from graduates. We view any potential trend shifts as an acceptable side effect of our vastly improved data collection volume.
