Surveys at UNF

UNF participates in several national and local surveys.

Graduating Senior Survey

The Office of Assessment administers the Graduating Senior Survey (GSS) to all baccalaureate candidates in the semester they graduate. Graduating seniors receive a prompt to take the GSS when they apply to graduate in their last semester at UNF.

The purpose of the GSS is to measure seniors' perceptions of their educational experiences as a UNF student. The survey also asks about career plans. The GSS is part of UNF's ongoing institutional-level efforts that focus on ways in which student experiences can be improved.

The GSS has been administered at UNF since 2002.  To access GSS information, connect to UNF VPN and sign into the SharePoint website at https://talon.unf.edu/aa/ar/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/ and access "Public Documents". You can request results for the university, your college, department, or program by contacting Dr. Amanda Kulp at amanda.kulp@unf.edu or by phone at (904) 620-1944.
