Graduate Outcomes

ArtCenter is committed to tracking the outcomes of our graduating students.

An annual survey is administered to the graduating classes of the previous academic year (Fall, Spring Summer) to collect data and feedback on employment status, current place of employment, and other career-related activities one-year post-graduation. The Office of Institutional Research also partners with Alumni Relations, Career and Professional Development, and Industry Engagement to develop a Knowledge Rate (a combination of survey results with publicly available internet-based research), helping to expand the information available on the College’s graduates.

A copy of the Graduate Employment Survey instrument may be requested by contacting the Center for Educational Effectiveness ( Survey participants should read our Informed Consent and Incentive Rules before completing the survey.

Outcomes and data reported for the most recent Knowledge Rate can be found by visiting the College’s At a Glance and Graduate Employment web pages.

For a full list of career and continuing education programs and services available to alumni, please visit the Alumni and Career and Professional Development pages on our website. Both offices are service-oriented and here to support you as a current student, eventually as an alumnus of ArtCenter and throughout your career.

If you have any questions related to the Graduate Employment Survey or the College’s Knowledge Rate, please contact the Center for Educational Effectiveness at
