Undergraduate Admission

Our Success Rate

99% of Xavier graduates are employed, attending grad school or working in service or volunteer positions within six months of graduation (Class of 2022).

How do we collect the data for our success rate?

Xavier University contacts each graduating student to find out their employment status following graduation. If the student indicates that they are ‘still searching,’ Xavier will put them in contact with a Career Coach to help them find employment.

The NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) is the organization that monitors how universities capture and report their success rate. NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) uses the term “knowledge rate” to define the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates’ post-graduation career activities. This information comes from multiple sources of outcomes data (e.g. survey responses, email, phone, social media and information from faculty, staff and employers).
