Detailed outcomes rates by department and major are available in the data tables. This information for each graduating cohort is typically available 12-15 months following graduation. The first year of data collection is from the 2009-2010 graduates.

The Career Services Center also produces a one-page Graduate Outcomes Report summary annually (beginning in 2019) based on the Office of Institutional Effectiveness data.

WWU Alumni Internships, Job Titles & Grad School Enrollment

In addition to analyzing graduate outcomes rates, WWU also collects information on internships, job titles, and graduate school enrollment for recent alumni of WWU undergraduate programs. This information can be useful in figuring out where students intern, get jobs, and what post-graduate studies they enroll in.
