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: grad degrees and institutions reported by grads

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 you can see, for two colleges, well over 40% of the graduates of pursue continued education as a first destination:
— Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Science
— Science
