In a post-secondary employment outcomes (PSEO) study conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, Niagara County Community College graduates achieved a 76.8% employment rate five years after their graduation. That’s the second-highest five-year, post-grad employment rate among community colleges in New York. The study also revealed the top-grossing jobs were from alumni who earned an associate degree in allied health, engineering or computer information-related programs at NCCC.

NCCC President Dr. William Murabito said, “I am proud of our graduates and honored to be leading an education- and workforce-driven institution, which has made a significant impact in our local economy.”

The post-secondary employment outcomes data illustrates wages and employment flows for recent graduates of partner colleges and universities in Colorado, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. It includes graduates who are employed full-time on a yearly basis at the federal minimum wage and work three or more quarters in a calendar year.
