Outcomes are based on the 66% of 2016-2017 Engineering and Applied Science undergraduate degree recipients who responded to a survey or for whom data was gathered from LinkedIn within one year of graduation, not the total number of graduates, and may not be representative of the total graduating population. 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. Salary data is self-reported voluntarily by Engineering and Applied Science graduates and are based upon a 55% response rate. Salary figures vary from year-to-year based upon a number of factors, including market conditions as well as the number of graduates reporting salary information to us. The economy is constantly changing, and employment for past classes is not an accurate predictor of employment for future classes. In addition, a degree from Hofstra or any other school is not a guarantee of employment in any field.

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