College Choice Survey



The College Choice Survey is a periodic survey of first-year and transfer students admitted to UC Santa Cruz and has been conducted since 1992.  This survey includes both students who attended UC Santa Cruz and those who chose to attend other universities. This survey allows campus units to identify the relative influence of college characteristics on students’ college choice and to evaluate applicants' experiences with the admissions process.
