We listen to your feedback and make improvements to the student experience based upon survey results about your Excelsior College experience across a variety of topics.
Wondering why you were not contacted for one of these surveys?
We know that our students are busy, so we have an institutional policy limiting the amount of times any member of the Excelsior community can be contacted to participate in a research project. That’s why it’s so important that you participate when you receive a request for feedback.
Let your voice be heard. Watch your email for upcoming opportunities to tell us what you think.
Here are some of our regular surveys that ask students for their feedback on the Excelsior College experience:
Service Quality Assessment (SQA) evaluates students' expectations of service quality and gives students the opportunity to tell us how well Excelsior departments are providing critical service to the student population.
Priorities Survey for Online Learners (PSOL) is a survey designed to evaluate what students believe is important about their education experience as well as how satisfied they are with their experiences.
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) addresses students' perceptions of the college environment with reference to their educational and personal growth, satisfaction, and achievement.
Course Evaluation Surveys are distributed each term and are used to monitor the quality of courses, faculty, and programs.
Exit and Alumni Surveys invite graduates to share their thoughts regarding how well the college prepared them for employment and continuing education.
We also contact students to participate in research in specialized areas, such as providing feedback on academic advising, the registrar's office, and the library.
Don't let other students be your voice. Tell us what YOU think when you receive a survey!

Criteria Relating to Research Involving Excelsior College Enrolled or Prospective Students, Faculty, Staff or Alumni
To minimize survey fatigue and the oversampling of prospective students, enrolled students, staff, faculty and alumni, and optimize the value of survey activities, the College has established a policy limiting the number of times annually that a student, staff member, faculty member, or alumnus may be included as a subject in a research study. Members of these groups may not be selected as a research subject more than four times during any 12 month period.
During the IRB review of research proposals involving prospective students, enrolled students, staff, faculty and alumni, consideration will be given to methods proposed by the researcher to minimize oversampling. In general, research involving members of these groups should use sampling methods rather than selecting entire populations as research subjects.
Exemptions to the Oversampling Restriction
Research studies exempted from the oversampling restriction include course evaluations, workshop evaluations, examination surveys, service quality surveys issued by Institutional Effectiveness and the Office of Information and Technology Services, surveys required to meet institutional or program accreditation expectations, surveys conducted by Excelsior College staff or faculty on individuals not affiliated with the College unless a review is requested by the researcher, and others deemed essential by the provost and chief academic officer.
