Graduate Survey

Cedar Crest College's Career Planning Center asks all graduates to complete the Career Planning/Alumnae Affairs survey. The survey's purpose is to learn about your post-graduation plans and how you used career planning services during college. The survey is easy, fast, and confidential. This information is valuable to academic departments, employers, and future students and families. Data is used by the College to respond to inquiries, to change programs and services, and to connect with alumni.

The survey link will be sent to all graduates.
