    The Office of Career Development uses The Outcomes Survey® (TOS) to collect career outcomes data on our graduates. Carlow University graduates have great stories, and your responses to The Outcomes Survey® will help us to share your success with current and prospective students. Whether you have already accepted a job or graduate school offer, have plans to start a business, will be volunteering in the community or abroad, or are still defining your next steps, we ask that you share information about your post-graduation plans using The Outcomes Survey. (Please note that official graduation is contingent upon meeting all academic requirements of the University.) Completion of the survey will qualify you for a drawing to win a variety of prizes, including iPads and gift cards, and will provide us with critical information necessary for career and academic advising, student recruitment, and institutional reporting needs.
    Students in each graduating class will be asked to respond to The Outcomes Survey® shortly before graduation, and will be prompted to update their responses three, six and twelve months after graduation. Every graduating student will receive an email containing a unique URL to their record in The Outcomes Survey® at each survey interval. Graduates will also be able to request their unique link to complete or update their survey directly at any time using this URL:
