The University of Houston (UH) - University Career Services collects the initial destinations of UH graduates through the Graduation Survey. It's administered to all UH undergrads and graduate students for each graduating cohort. The survey captures career-related outcomes, as well as data on participation in co-curricular activities during graduates' tenure at the University of Houston.
Purpose of the Survey
The data provides valuable information to prospective students, current students, alumni, guardians, and university stakeholders.
UH- University Career Services (UCS) compiles graduation information at the time of graduation for the following 7 colleges: Architecture, Arts, Education, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Natural Science and Mathematics (NSM), Arts, and the Hobby School of Public Affairs. The data reported is solely based on voluntary student responses.
UH utilizes a decentralized career-center model; 10 colleges (Business, Engineering, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Social Work, Technology) collect and report data for their particular colleges. Links to data collected by the college-based career centers are available.
Employment data for 2020 is unavailable due to the disruption to the normal data collection process.
Due to employment challenges caused by the COVID pandemic, University Career Services will extend career services for all Dec. 2019, May 2020, August 2020, and December 2020 University of Houston graduates to one year following graduation. Alumni Career Services (ACS) includes access to Cougar Pathway, access to one-on-one counseling appointments, workshops, and career fairs hosted by University Career Services.
*Alumni can continue to access Cougar Pathway via the Access UH account.
