Graduate Student Support Survey

The Graduate Student Support Survey is conducted to inform UC policymakers about the competitiveness of financial award packages offered by both UC campuses and their top competitor institutions. Institutional Research & Academic Planning administers this survey in collaboration with Student Financial Support in the department of Graduate, Undergraduate and Equity Affairs at UCOP. Items on the survey ask admitted students to identify UC’s top competitor institutions and assess the factors they use when determining which campus to attend. Student Financial Support uses the survey data to produce a comprehensive report that supports UC's financial aid decision-making activities.
