Student surveys provide essential information the University needs for maintaining accreditation, ensure compliance with federal and state regulations and to assess the effectiveness of Embry-Riddle academic programs and services. Three basic types of student surveys are administered to most or all students: end-of-course evaluations, alumni surveys, and student satisfaction surveys which are typically administered as part of the University’s participation in national surveys. Your participation in such surveys is strongly encouraged.

The end-of-course evaluations are completed at or near the end of each course, an alumni survey called the Career Destination Survey is sent to all graduates the month after a degree is conferred. Additionally, we survey graduates approximately one year and 3-4 years after graduation. Student satisfaction surveys are conducted annually in conjunction with our participation in national student surveys such as: the Student Satisfaction Inventory, the Adult Student Priorities Survey, the Priorities Survey for Online Learners among others.

Additionally, some degree programs or departments will survey certain students periodically for the purposes of planning and assessment. The survey information you provide is essential for continuous quality improvement and increased institutional effectiveness.
