AUSTIN (January 16, 2014) The University of Texas System has unveiled a website that helps track how much graduates earned on average as much as five years after leaving school and their likely debt load.
Thursday in Austin system officials announced details of seekUT, which stands for search, plus earnings, plus employment equals knowledge.
The site, which is meant to help students and families make informed decisions on future careers, was touted as the first U.S. system of higher education with an interactive website using salary and debt statistics for various jobs.
The information involves students one year and five years after graduation.
The Texas Workforce Commission shared occupational data.
The project also involves the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
The website evolved from recommendations of the Student Debt Reduction Task Force.
