New Student Survey Data

The New Student Survey is administered each fall to incoming frosh and transfer students from mid-October to just before Thanksgiving. The focus of this survey is on student educational plans, transition to UC Merced, and use of campus services. Questions about their choice of UC Merced are also included. Institutional Research and Decision Support partners closely with the division of Student Affairs for this survey.

If you are a student who is interested in taking the survey, please visit the New Student Survey Landing Page.
