Where do these data come from?
seekUT was developed by the Office of Strategic Initiatives using data obtained through partnerships with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). The data on earnings of UT bachelor’s degree recipients are the result of linking UT System data with the TWC’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) wage record data. Additionally, seekUT incorporates data from the National Student Clearinghouse, the Texas Workforce Commission’s Labor Market & Career Information, and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. More information on the data and methodology is available from the About the Data page.
Which UT System institutions are included?
All nine academic institutions:
UT Arlington, UT Austin, UT Brownsville, UT Dallas, UT El Paso, UT Pan American, UT Permian Basin, UT San Antonio, and UT Tyler.
Five health institutions:
UT Southwestern Medical Center, UT Medical Branch at Galveston, UT Health Science Center at Houston, UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, and UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. (The sixth health institution, UT Health Science Center at Tyler, did not begin enrolling students until fall 2012 and therefore, data are not yet available for this campus.)

In addition to seekUT, the UT System Office of Strategic Initiatives developed the UT System Productivity Dashboard and Data Visualization tool. The Productivity Dashboard and Explore More Data Visualization tool are further examples of how the UT System is committed to accountability and transparency in all areas. Within these tools you'll find data covering student outcomes, faculty productivity, research and technology, and finance and efficiency for all of its institutions.
It can be hard to predict exactly how the choices you make today can impact your future. The UT System's new data tool seekUT can help you. It can't predict the future. But it can tell you what the loan amounts and earnings of past UT graduates have been and help you make the decisions about your education that are right for you and your family.
