First Destination Survey

The First Destination Survey (FDS) is a nationally mandated survey that is meant to gain knowledge about what activities students are engaging in after graduation from college. The information gained from the survey helps to determine the effectiveness of the institution from which the student graduated from.

This year, the First Destination Survey is being conducted by CSO Research. Graduating students should have received an email asking for the survey to be filled out; if you did NOT receive any such email, you can request another survey by clicking on the link below and following the instructions:
