Individual responses are confidential:

We do not publish or share names or individual responses — as you see in the annual Post-Graduation Report — we list data and facts by major, college, university. Individual identifying information is not disclosed.

Why we ask:

1. The information is valuable — to academic departments, to employers who hire Virginia Tech graduates, and especially to current and future students and their parents. Data from the survey is used to respond to a wide variety of internal and external requests for information. The past Reports are online viewable by anyone.

2. Federal law requires that universities provide certain information to current and prospective students:

Federal law requires universities to report data about graduates.

The Post-Graduation REPORT [based on the survey] is used by the Virginia Tech Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness: Student Consumer Information to meet federal requirements for disclosure and reporting of data on "student outcomes," specifically employment and graduate/professional school "placement" following the undergraduate degree.

Why you should respond:

Because you're a part of the university community.
Current and future students have the same questions you have.

Log in to the survey.

Give something to help
those who follow you.

Because past graduates responded, we can tell you:
- What graduates of your major are doing after graduation.
- Graduate/professional schools attended by grads of your major.
- Employers, job titles and locations of graduates.
- Salary data.
- What grads wished they had done differently.
All this, and more is in the annual Post-Graduation Report.
Some form of this survey has been conducted since the 1970s.
