Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) Freshman Survey

The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) Freshman Survey is administered by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA and collects information from students entering college across the country. The instrument asks incoming students about their established behaviors in high school, academic preparedness, admissions decisions, expectations of college, interactions with peers and faculty, student values and goals, student demographic characteristics, and concerns about financing college.
