More After Dordt

Here are the facts—we care about our graduates! Each year the Career Development Center gets in touch with our most recent graduating class to find out where they are and what they are doing with their degrees from Dordt University. We call this the First-Destination Report. All statistics reported below are from the Class of 2019 First-Destination Report.

We follow strict standards for collecting our data and determining results. Our knowledge rate for the Class of 2019 is 95.5% (well above the national average).
