About the Graduation Survey

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

With this survey, graduating students have the opportunity to share valuable information regarding academic coursework, career services, debt and other areas important to the success of students. We encourage all graduating students to take the survey, as this valuable feedback from students helps inform decision-making throughout the university and enhance the experiences of future Buckeyes.
