Alfred State College's 2008 graduates distinguished themselves again this year by garnering a placement/transfer record of 98 percent.
The employment and transfer figures are based on an annual survey sent to all ASC graduates; 2008's questionnaire netted a 68 percent response rate from surveyed graduates.
Sixty-four percent of the ’08 graduates who responded to the survey are employed, while 34 percent opted to continue their education. One percent remain available for employment; one percent are not seeking work. Among those employed, 88 percent are working in jobs related to their college field of study.
Coupled with the fact that the College has the highest on-time graduation rate of non-specialized, two-year, post-secondary institutions in New York State, the College’s placement and transfer statistics indicate that Alfred State continued to offer a quality education to all students who have the desire and capability to learn.
Alfred State College graduates are prepared to continue their education or find employment in a career-related field. The fact that so many of ASC's graduates are finding career-related jobs with excellent salaries indicates that there are outstanding job opportunities available to the person with the right degree.
