The career outcomes rate includes those employed (full-time or part-time) and not employed but attending graduate school (full-time or part-time) next semester.

All data must meet a test of data integrity. The average salary reported is determined by the level at which data may be deemed reliable (University-wide, school, division or department).

Salary data is self-reported voluntarily by graduates and are based upon a 36% response rate for graduates. Salary figures vary from year-to-year based upon a number of factors, including, but not limited to, market conditions as well as the number of graduates reporting salary information to us. In addition, please note that these figures are based solely on information that is self-reported to us by our graduates, and the salary data provided is based on the accuracy and completeness of the information provided by our graduates to us. Salary figures only include annual base salary. They do not include bonus, commission or any other guaranteed compensation.
