Undergraduate First Destination Data

Published annually, the First Destination Report provides insight into the various career paths that Notre Dame students have embarked upon graduation. Data is collected through an online survey administered by the Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Research before Commencement in May. Consistent with standards established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development conducts follow-up research and contact with recent graduates for a period of six months after graduation to obtain the most accurate information about post-graduation plans. "Knowledge rate" refers to information which Notre Dame has reasonable and verifiable information concerning post-graduation career activities. Data sources include self-reported survey results, employer-provided data, contact from students, verified updates to LinkedIn, etc.). Please select from one of the following public PDF reports
