The 2016 UCUES Survey is now closed. Thank you for your participation.

The University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey


The University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) is an online survey administered every other year at UC Berkeley and each of the other undergraduate UC campuses. This survey is an important tool to better understand the undergraduate academic and co-curricular experience at Berkeley. UCUES data is used for many institutional purposes, including providing undergraduate student input into academic program reviews and learning more about students’ financial concerns. All UC Berkeley undergraduates who are 18 years old or older, as of April 4, 2016 are invited to participate in the survey.


Your responses to this survey are confidential, and the results of the study will be reported only as aggregate data. Any quotations from responses to open ended questions used in reporting will be reviewed to ensure that your identity cannot be ascertained.


Valued at approximately $5,000, the prizes include thirty $25 gift cards and six iPad minis. Grand prizes include one Apple Watch Sport and three $500 gift cards. Drawings will be held approximately once per week, with a hiatus between the weeks of May 2 and May 12. Once you complete the survey, your name will be eligible for all subsequent prize drawings, so the earlier you respond, the more chances you have to win a prize.
