Graduation Surveys

Exit Surveys

Each academic year, as part of the online application for graduation process, students about to graduate are asked to complete an exit survey developed at UMass Dartmouth. Students are asked questions about several areas of the university experience, including general and overall satisfaction, satisfaction with campus services, satisfaction with academics, and satisfaction with student life. There are three versions of the exit survey: one for undergraduate students, one for graduate students, and one for law students [Note: a modified version of the survey was launched in the 2011-2012 academic year].

Future Plans of Undergraduate Degree Recipients

Students are asked to complete a brief survey when they line up at the Campus Bookstore in the spring to pick up their caps and gowns for the May graduation ceremony. This survey is known as the Future Plans Survey (FPS) (formerly Cap and Gown Survey (CGS)). The survey asks students about their employment and educational plans following graduation.
