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 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. ┬áMore 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.)
