|About the survey
The 1st Destination Survey is a very brief online survey open to all MTSU graduates from one month before graduation to three months after.
The results indicate what graduates are doing, or will be doing, after they graduate.
Why should you take the survey?
Summaries of the results are used for accreditation and federal & state compliance. This ensures the future value and integrity of your degree. This information also helps students make decisions about their future educational and career plans.
Please take a few minutes to complete the Survey.
