What does it mean when a report refers to a “weighted” count?
Union College allows students to pursue single majors, interdepartmental majors (ID major) and double majors. ID majors typically involve taking a reduced number of courses from the full major within two Departments or Programs. Students may also pursue a “double major” by satisfying all requirements of two majors, neither of which can be an interdepartmental major or an organizing theme major. Our weighted enrollment and degree data allows us to bucket each student into their respective majors. Single majors are weighted 1.0. ID majors are weighted .67 per major, and double majors are weighted 1.0 per major.

When are these annual reports updated?
Most reports posted are based on the Fall census, which usually occurs the third week in the term, after the add/drop deadline has passed. Most reports will be updated in October of the current academic year, unless stated otherwise.
What is the Common Data Set (CDS) and where can this be located?
The CDS initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers represented by the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as reduce the reporting burden on data providers. Most “commonly asked” questions can be found in our CDS located here. Every year, the CDS is uploaded to our website around mid-February. Previous years CDS will also be located on our site. If you are looking for a CDS of a year not listed, please reach out to our office directly.
Where can I locate Alumni Outcomes Data?
- First Destination reports Data for these reports are provided by the Becker Career Center. Following graduation, data is collected throughout the remainder of the calendar year to provide the most up to date information. Institutional Research then receives these data and will post the First Destination report by June/July of the following year. (For example, June 2022 Graduates will be available in June 2023).
