UC Undergraduate Experience Survey 2022

Undergraduates — Tell us about life at UC Irvine.

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has made this academic year both unusual and challenging, and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate this  evolving situation. What remains constant, however, is UC Irvine’s goal of supporting our students and providing them with the best possible undergraduate experience. It is now even more important that we learn about your current experiences and challenges, and also your overall experience at UCI.

Please help us by completing the University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES). The information you provide on the survey will inform and improve how we respond to such challenges in the future and give us valuable information on your overall academic experience during your time at our campus.

Frequently Asked Questions:

The University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey is an online survey administered at UC Irvine and each of the other undergraduate UC campuses. UCUES data is used for many institutional purposes, such as identifying obstacles to undergraduate success, providing undergraduate student feedback to faculty and administrators, and learning more about students’ financial concerns. The data may also be used at an aggregate data level for academic research purposes after obtaining the appropriate IRB approval.

It’s easier completed on a PC than on a mobile phone. Please click this link and log in with your UCInetID.

The survey is open April 6th to July 31st. If you’ve started your survey but haven’t finished, please log in and complete your survey today.

No, the survey can be completed in multiple sittings. You can return to the survey and resume from where you left off.

The survey typically takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. We hope you will consider taking the time to complete the entire survey due to the critical importance of this information.

Students who complete the survey are automatically entered into our drawings for prizes.* Each week, we’ll give away gift cards to Starbucks, In-N-Out Burger and Amazon.com. There will also be several big prizes worth $100 or more.  You can only win one weekly prize and one big prize.  That’s right, even if you have already won a weekly prize, you will still be entered into the drawings for one of the big prizes! Winners will be notified by email.

This will depend on the number of students who complete the survey. However, the sooner you complete the survey, the more chances you’ll have to win. So complete your survey early for the best chances of winning!
