2017 Employment Statistics

2017 Initial Industry Related Employment Percentages (Graduation Year 2015-2016)

Full Sail University is required by the U.S. Department of Education and our accrediting body, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), to regularly report on the job-placement rates of our graduates. The process by which this data is collected and then reported is regulated by guidelines put in place by both the Department of Education and the ACCSC, and is consistent among all schools who report these rates.

Graduates Employed in Field means that a graduate is currently working in the field of study of their degree program (for instance, a Film graduate who is a production assistant on a movie would count; a Film grad who works at a video rental store would not count)

Graduates who have unpaid employment related to their specific education (internships, etc.), graduates who have employment that is unrelated to their specific education, graduates who are unemployed, or graduates who could not be contacted are not considered "employed in field."

Graduates who returned to school or joined the military, international students who returned to their home country, graduates who are incarcerated, deceased, or have medical conditions that keep them from working are not considered "available for employment."
