Job Placement Rates for Graduates

St. Catherine University uses the National Association of Colleges and Employers First-Destination Survey to capture outcomes for all degree levels to provide data regarding how new college graduates fare in their careers within six months of graduation. The outcomes include working, still looking, and not seeking.

For the 2020-21 academic year, 761 graduates, which represent 60% of the institution’s total 1,269 graduates from the College for Women, College for Adults, and Graduate School, completed the survey and self-reported the following:

  • Working: 75%
  • Seeking: 0%
  • Still Seeking: 25 %

“Working” is defined as graduates employed full or part time, on contract or freelance, accepted by a graduate or professional school, or volunteering or in the military. “Still seeking” refers to graduates still seeking employment or further education. “Not seeking” encompasses students not employed or seeking additional education.
