About the Graduation Survey

The Graduation Survey is an Ohio State survey; the Center for the Study of Student Life (CSSL) administers the survey on behalf of the university.

Graduating students have the opportunity to share valuable information regarding academic coursework, career services, debt, and other areas important to the success of students. While the survey is not mandatory, we encourage all graduating students to take the survey. Your feedback helps inform decision-making throughout the university and improve the experiences of future Buckeyes.
