GRADUATE SURVEY PROCESS In October 2021, a survey was mailed to 275 graduates (representing 276 degrees) who graduated between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. These are graduates from undergraduate programs only. Graduates were also given the option of completing the survey online via the Central Penn College website. One graduate completed two degrees within the time period. Thus, the numbers in this report are based on the 276 total degrees granted. Of the 275 graduates, 35 (12.7%) completed and returned the written or online survey. After written and online surveys were received, attempts were made to contact non-respondents via telephone, text and email. Various other methods were also used to gather employment information from those who still did not respond. Some of those methods included researching social networking sites, internet searches, contacting relatives, accessing various other databases on campus, and surveying faculty/staff. Central Penn follows the First-Destination Survey Standards and Protocols outlined by the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE). In these standards, NACE suggests institutions should strive for a knowledge rate of at least 65%. Central Penn College was successful in obtaining information for 258 of the 276 degrees, resulting in a knowledge rate of 93.5%. It is possible that some jobs listed as employed in the field may not require that specific degree; however, it may be necessary to start one’s career in an entry-level position in order to progress into jobs that do require that degree. It should also be noted that some graduates might no longer be in the position listed by the time this report is published. While 86% of graduates were employed in their chosen field or continuing their education, it should be noted that 97.7% of graduates were employed in some capacity or continuing their education. Although 5.4% of graduates decided to continue their education as their primary focus within their career path after graduation, there were 25 total graduates continuing their education at least part-time. 18 of those 25 graduates (72%) decided to do so at Central Penn College. As noted in the table below, 1.6% of the graduates were not seeking employment. This 1.6% represents graduates who chose to stay at home to provide childcare to their children. In addition to the graduates not seeking employment, there are several graduates who are working, but not in the career field of their program of study. Some of these graduates disclosed that they are very happy in their current positions and have decided they do not wish to pursue a career in their field of study at the present time. Thus, there were diverse reasons why some graduates were either not seeking employment or not working in their chosen field at the time of the report.

* Graduates earning degrees in two different majors in the same year are counted in more than one category. **If a graduate was both working in the field and continuing his/her education, that graduate’s status is only reported once in the above chart in their primary area of activity, per NACE guidelines; however, both the job title and continuing education is reported in the employment by major and continuing education sections below. Those serving in the military are counted in this category as employed in field but also identified in the “Military” column.
