National Student Clearinghouse Reports

Overall, post-graduate outcomes for students in the program are good. While on average 40% of people who complete an undergraduate degree are admitted to a graduate program within 10 years, data from the National Student Clearinghouse indicates that 47% of Integrated Studies graduates were admitted (not counting any students who attended programs outside of the United States).

Exit Survey Reports

 

Graduating BA/BS students are given an optional exit survey, which requests their feedback across a variety of metrics: program rigor, faculty performance, advisor performance, level of preparedness for graduate school/employment, etc. Low response rates leads us to consider mandating the survey via a formal curriculum action.
