Post Grad Data

Be succesful!

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).
