    First-Destination Survey Captures Outcomes for All Degree Levels and Provides Trends Data

    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.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Compare outcomes for the class of 2018 to previous years;
    • Discuss contributing factors to student outcomes; and
    • Explore compensation and continuing education trends.
