The Incoming First-Year Student Survey at NC State is an online survey administered each fall semester. The survey is available shortly after New Student Orientation in the summer until August 30, 2021. Incoming first-year students should be on the lookout for an email invitation to complete the survey. The survey is also available at go.ncsu.edu/incoming.firstyear.survey. In addition to administering the survey, ISA is also responsible for analyzing the data and preparing and distributing the reports on results to units across campus. The survey asks first-year students about their experiences applying to NC State, how they plan to pay for college, their satisfaction with NC State services and programs (including New Student Orientation), their preparation for college and goals, and background information. Previous years’ results from the survey are posted on the ISA website.
