Employment and Enrollment Status of BA Grads Four-Years Later

(2007-08 to 2012)


Four years after graduating from a four-year bachelor's program, 80 percent of graduates were working. Of these, two thirds (69 percent) were employed and not attending school while 11 percent were employed and enrolled in college. Another 8 percent were out of the labor force, 7 percent were unemployed, and 6 percent were going to college and not working.
