*The Knowledge Rate reflects the percentage of graduates for which reasonable and verifiable data on post-graduation initial career activities was obtained. Data collection begins with the spring online survey at June graduation and continues throughout the following six months with the collection of any missing data as well as the updating of any known changes in graduates' information via other verifiable sources, such as direct outreach to graduates and LinkedIn profiles. Data shown reflect initial statistics from the June graduation survey and updated statistics gathered through 6 months. The knowledge rate only takes into account surveyed students who completed graduation requirements. See next slide for further details.

**Reflects students who have a job, students entering active military duty, students pursuing additional undergraduate coursework, students attending graduate/professional school, students engaged in volunteer service, and students still seeking employment or further education (n=219, 6-month report). Does not include students who are not seeking placement (n=2) or surveyed students who have not completed graduation requirements (n=41). Non-respondents also not reflected.

Class of 2017 Knowledge Rate as Based on NACE Standards/Protocols

For the Class of 2017, there is an updated methodology for career outcomes reporting and determining the knowledge rate, which aligns more closely with the first-destination standards/protocols of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

The online June graduation survey was initially sent to 351 students. Following the survey administration and additional data collection through the following 6 months via verifiable sources, a total of 262 student records had been collected. This list of 262 student records were compared against the list of 344 confirmed bachelor's degree completers for the period of July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017 degree completers*. This represents a 64% knowledge rate (i.e., verifiable data was obtained on 221 of 344 degree completers). This approaches NACE's minimum recommended knowledge rate (65%).

*Any remaining student records either belong to students yet to complete their degrees or to students who had previously completed their degrees (e.g., Class of 2016)
