Where Alumni Live: Almost two-thirds of CU-Boulder alumni (64%) who earned a degree between August 2006 and May 2008 were living in Colorado in 2011. Somewhat siimilar percentages of bachelor's and master's recipients (64% and 69%, respectively) were living in Colorado after receiving their degrees, whereas fewer doctoral recipients (47%) were. In addition, the proportion of bachelor's recipients living in Colorado differs substantially for those alumni who entered CU-Boulder as residents versus those who entered as non-residents. Of the bachelor's recipients who were residents when they entered CU-Boulder, 83% were living in Colorado three to five years later, compared to 29% of the bachelor's recipients who were non-residents at the time they entered CU-Boulder.

Comparable results for alumni in 2007 revealed that the proportion of alumni who chose to live in Colorado 3 to 5 years after graduation in 2007 were notably lower across all class level and residency groups than they were four years later for the same comparable class levels and groups of alumni in 2011.
