The Student Pulse Survey provides actionable information for campus leadership to address student needs.

Pulse surveys are brief surveys administered to undergraduate and graduate students each semester. Each survey includes questions on timely topics, and takes approximately 1-5 minutes to complete. Survey results are shared with students after the survey has closed.

The Student Pulse Survey is a partnership between the Division of Undergraduate Education, Student Affairs, and Graduate Division. For questions about the survey, please email
