Five-Year Out Alumni Survey
Every three years, an alumni survey developed at UMass Dartmouth is administered to undergraduate alumni of the university. The survey is administered to the undergraduate class that earned degrees approximately five years prior to the survey period. The first administration of the Five-Year Out Alumni Survey was in academic year 2010-2011 with the Class of 2006. The next administration is planned for academic year 2013-2014 with the Class of 2009. The survey collects information from undergraduate alumni on overall satisfaction with their UMass Dartmouth experience, career and graduate/professional school outcomes, civic engagement, and interest in alumni connections.
Recent Graduates Survey (RGS)
Recent graduates of UMass Dartmouth are asked to complete a brief survey following their graduation from the university. In accordance with the reporting conventions of various higher education survey groups, such as U.S. News & World Report and Peterson's, the survey is administered six months after graduation for undergraduate degree earners and three months after graduation for graduate degree earners*. Students are asked to provide updated information on their activities following graduation (e.g., employment and further study).
*This data collection schedule was implemented in academic year (AY) 2012-2013. Data for periods prior to AY 2012-2013 do not follow this collection procedure.
