Survey of Graduating Seniors

Survey of Graduating Seniors

During Spring Quarter each year, OIR administers a survey to students who have graduated or who are expected to graduate during the current academic year. The survey instrument is based on the Graduating Senior Survey designed by the Undergraduate Outcomes Work Group of the Association of American Universities Data Exchange (AAUDE), and was based on the recommendations of the AAU Institutional Data Committee. The survey's questions are focused on outcomes (employment and the pursuit of advanced education), satisfaction with the educational experience, and education-related debt. Beyond the core set of AAUDE questions, UCI's survey also includes additional items suggested by the Provost's Management Group in 2008 as well as other campus stakeholders, such as Student Affairs (added in 2012-13).
