NIU stays in contact with its alumni because they have important information to share regarding their student experience. The Office of Assessment Services (OAS) administers the Annual Alumni Survey to all graduates from the past calendar year. In accordance with requirements of the Illinois Board or Higher Education, the OAS also administers a Baccalaureate follow-up survey to graduates 5 and 9 years out on a rotating cycle. The information gleaned from these surveys is helpful in making improvements in programs and services, as well as measuring the value of earning a degree at NIU.
