Download the executive summary of First Destinations for the College Class of 2015.
Detailed outcomes by academic discipline and type of school will be available later this summer.
NACE’s First-Destination Survey captures information regarding how new college graduates fare in their careers within six months of graduation. The annual initiative provides clear, concise, and consistent data on the outcomes associated with a college education on a national scale.
In addition to providing outcomes for individual classes, the First-Destination Survey is designed to provide trends data over time to inform the discussion about the value of higher education.
The Class of 2015 study is the second iteration of the survey and includes outcomes data for graduates at all degree levels—associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate. The inaugural survey, conducted for the Class of 2014, captured data for associate and bachelor’s degree graduates. The Class of 2015 report provides comparisons between 2015 and 2014 graduates at the bachelor’s degree level.
A total of 279 colleges and universities nationwide, representing nearly half a million graduates, provided data for Class of 2015 associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree graduates. Overall, data were reported for nearly 244,000 bachelor’s degree graduates in 34 broad disciplines and 185 majors, making this study the most comprehensive view of bachelor’s degree outcomes available.
The Class of 2015 is defined as those graduating between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015. Data were collected through December 30, 2015, and reported to NACE in March 2016.
