FIRST DESTINATION after undergraduate degree.

Each year we ask all new graduates to self-report their first destination — employment or continuing education — after the undergraduate degree; they have six months after commencement to do this. Keep in mind that some graduates may choose to work before continuing education at a later time.

By undergrad major: continuing education degrees and institutions

By colleges: percent of graduates continuing education

For total university, for the last reporting graduates, 22% indicated they were continuing education following graduation.

That varies by college, as you see in the chart.

As shown, for two colleges, more grads choose continuing education than employment as their first destination:
— Agriculture and Life Sciences: 46%
— Science: 43%
