First Destination Survey

First Destination Outcomes are recorded approximately 8 weeks prior to a graduating class.  Follow-up emails are sent for approximately 6 months after graduation to collect additional outcomes.  Although the goal is to collect outcomes from 65% of a graduating class, the numbers below do not indicate a complete analysis of outcomes for any one reporting period.
