This information is compiled primarily for Penn State Career Services staff, university and college administrators, academic and admissions advisors, and faculty/staff whose work impacts students, parents, and employers.
Graduates from all campuses at all degree levels were surveyed from data provided by the Penn State Office of the University Registrar. This included names of students who were approved to graduate. The data was gathered from a questionnaire sent via email to May 2013 graduates. Graduates were surveyed at the time of graduation and re-surveyed three months after graduation.
Eleven thousand four hundred twenty-one (11,421) graduates were sent invitations via electronic mail to respond to this web-based questionnaire. Usable returns were received from 3,682 respondents for an overall response rate of approximately 32.23%.
