First Destination Data

Published annually, the First Destination Report provides insight into the various career paths upon which Notre Dame students have embarked after graduation. Data is collected through an online survey administered by the Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Research before commencement each May. Content of the First Destination Report includes destinations (employment, graduate school, service, military, etc.), employing organizations, graduate school programs and median salaries.

The Meruelo Family Center for Career Development conducts follow-up research with recent graduates for a period of six months after graduation to obtain the most accurate information about post-graduation plans.
