Spring Commencement 2024

Mizzou Arena
Outcomes Survey

Trulaskes graduates: 

Congratulations! We hope you’ve enjoyed your time at Mizzou and more specifically your time in Trulaske. As you graduate, we need your help. Please complete the 2024 Mizzou Outcomes Survey before graduation. The information you provide is extremely valuable for a variety of reasons, including program rankings, and will only be used in aggregate form when reported.

Important things to know:

  • No individual data will be released.
  • The survey only takes about five minutes to complete.
  • You should log in with your university credentials (PawPrint and password).
  • You will be asked to agree to 12Twenty’s privacy terms to complete the survey.

Best of all, Business Career Services will give you a commemorative business-specific Truman pin for completing the survey!
