Saint Vincent College Post-Graduation Survey Results

Post-graduation information is collected by the Career and Professional Development Center as part of the annual First Destination Survey. via paper, email and phone surveys and is reported one year after graduation. We attribute our excellent response rate – 91 percent for 2021-22 graduates – to the personal connections we make with our students during their time at Saint Vincent, as well as the relationships we maintain with our alumni. 

Saint Vincent College reports a success rate based on students who report that they are either employed or are attending post-secondary institutions in their fields of interest or academic area of study. Each year's results includes statistics for students one year after receiving degrees in August, December, and May of the preceding academic year.
