Respondent Profile - 2005 Alumni Survey of 2001-2002 Graduates
A total of 324 USC Columbia alumni (23.5% of the 2001-2002 graduates
surveyed) completed the Alumni Survey in 2005.

- 33.4% obtained their first full-time job prior to leaving college
- 62.8% obtained their first full-time job within three months of graduating

The Alumni Survey is administered every two years to a 50% sample of USC alumni who were graduated two to three years before the survey is administered. The Alumni Survey is administered in part to fulfill the requirements of Act 255 of 1992, which mandates that public institutions of higher learning report placement data and educational satisfaction attitudes of graduates.
