UCSC First Destination Survey

Every year the Career Center sponsors a survey to ask graduating seniors about their post-graduation plans broadly, and more specific information if they have secured a job (including job title and salary) or been accepted into a graduate/professional degree program. Each survey year includes the Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring graduating cohorts. 

This survey is designed to provide students, alumni, and employers with critical data about where UCSC students go after graduation. As expected, college major does not restrict the employment or graduate school options that UCSC students pursue. Major profiles were created to provide an overview of the diverse interests and achievements of recent graduates from UC Santa Cruz.

This survey is administered by UCSC's Institutional Research, Assessment and Policy Studies. For information about survey administration questions about individual majors profiles, please contact surveys@ucsc.edu
