Student Experience Survey

Twice a year, AUC conducts a Student Experience Survey to collect insights and information about the university, and how we can continually improve your experience while at AUC. On Monday, March 19, the Spring 2018 survey will open for two weeks.

To make this survey meaningful, we need as many students as possible to participate. Your feedback will help guide efforts to address student concerns and issues, set and pursue goals for improvement, and provide reinforcement to areas that are already viewed as strong.

Please monitor your email for the survey invitation and link on Monday, March 19.
