Frequently Asked Questions

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 (THECB) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). The data on earnings of UT 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 and Career Information, and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. More information on the data and methodology is available on the About the Data page.

Which UT System institutions are included?

Seven of the academic institutions:
UT Arlington, UT Austin, UT Dallas, UT El Paso, UT Permian Basin, UT San Antonio, and UT Tyler. The eighth academic institution, UTRGV, began enrolling students in fall 2015. Therefore, data are not yet available for this campus.

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.
