Mid-Year, First-Year Freshmen Survey

The Mid-Year First-Year Freshmen Survey is a survey administered each January to students who had entered college for the first time the prior fall. Students complete the survey as they register for classes in the upcoming spring semester.

Items address student first-semester experiences and familiarity with offices on campus that provide academic and social support. Below are reports summarizing these results. Starting with the fall 2009 cohort, we have also provided an analysis of how survey responses correlate with persistence into fall 2010. An similar analysis of the fall 2010 cohort will be available this fall. This survey is administered by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies with the support of IPRA.
