Graduate Follow-up Survey and Report

Each year, the Minnesota State Legislature asks that all Minnesota State Colleges & Universities, including Bemidji State University, gather information on the status of our graduates within one year of graduation. The survey results are summarized to provide current and prospective students with information useful for selecting major programs and determining job markets. A summary report is posted on our website but individual responses are held in confidence.

The Graduate Follow-Up Survey is collected in print format, online, or by telephone. Graduates or individuals who know graduates provide this information, including the relatedness of employment to their program of study.
