Northwest Missouri State University


Post Grad Data

97%* of undergraduates and 99% of graduates secure employment or continue education within six months of graduation

* based on a 3-year rolling average

Northwest strives to prepare students for successful careers and we believe it is important to continuously evaluate the post-graduation status of our graduates. 

Career Services surveys the previous academic year graduates and organizes the data to provide a view of “first destination” employment and continuing education statistics. The data reported is six months after graduation (industry standard).
