Post-Graduation, First Destination Rates

(Employment and Graduate School Rates)

In an effort to measure the achievements of King’s graduates, Career Center staff track rates of employment and graduate school acceptance.

As of the 2018-19 graduating class – any alumna or alumnus with a degree conferred between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019 – Career Center staff collect data on all undergraduates. This tracking process includes the administration of surveys at the time of graduation as well as six months following graduation. Career Center staff also use publically available data to obtain information. Additionally, faculty and staff provide such details to Career Center staff for the purpose of this tracking. Furthermore, the Office of Institutional Research uses data from the National Student Clearinghouse to collect information on Graduate School rates. Through this process, the Institution strives to have a 90% Knowledge Rate of our graduates.

Additionally, the Institution aspires to have the known data show that 80% of graduates are employed, 15% of graduates are pursuing further education, and 5% of graduates are in some other category (service opportunities or mission work, as examples).

Below are the results of tracking rates of employment and graduate school acceptance:
