First Destination Survey

IU East Career Outcomes for Undergraduates

Career Services administers the First Destination Survey to all IU East students who earn a Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree or Certificate. This survey is based on the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) standards and protocols developed to support the collection of career outcome data. This data only includes those who earned a Bachelor's Degree or Certificate.

Per NACE standards, the graduating cohort for the Class of 2019 includes those students who graduated between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Typically data is collected within a short time prior to graduation and after graduation until December 31st. Data reported by faculty/staff and recorded from LinkedIn was collected after January 1st, for reasons of consistency and final evaluation. 

Data will continue to be updated here for each class.
