How and when to mark a student as “No Information Available”?
Students for whom you do not have usable outcome information can be marked as “No Information Available” by an administrator. The MBA CSEA has very clear guidelines as to what constitutes a student meeting this criteria:
To classify a graduate in the “No Recent Information Available” category, the career services staff should have two evidences of outreach prior to graduation and two post-graduation within the data collection period. The last outreach should be within the final month of data collection period. Acceptable evidence of outreach includes a written log maintained by the University with contact dates, contact names, or written correspondence requesting employment status.
Recent information received about a graduate is considered information gathered two months prior to graduation up to the school’s data collection deadline. That is, if a school gains information on a students’ status within two months of graduation and receives no further updates, the school should consider the last known status to be the student’s final status.
To classify a student as “No Information Available” in 12Twenty, navigate to the Student’s Profile, Jobs & Job Offers tab. Select “Admin: Unreported” for the intended job phase.
You will be prompted to enter a “Student Report Date.” We suggest entering the date when the student first met the criteria for this category (this would be within the final month of the data collection period, per the MBA CSEA Standards, after they have not responded to the final outreach attempt).
