CIRP National Freshman Survey
Results from the Freshman Survey, a national survey that describes behaviors and attitudes of first-time college freshmen (for newest results see the BCSSE).
General CIRP Information:
The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) is a continuing longitudinal study of the American higher education system with the primary purpose of assessing the effects of college on students. The Freshman Survey, a project of the CIRP, is designed to obtain data on the characteristics of students attending American colleges and universities as first-time, full-time freshmen. The CIRP is sponsored by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Oklahoma State University has participated annually in the Freshman Survey since 1993. This report summarizes the OSU survey data and compares responses of OSU students with national norms and with responses of students from other high selectivity public universities. The selectivity designation for an institution participating in the survey is based on the average verbal and mathematics scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or equivalent scores on the American College Test (ACT) of entering freshmen at that institution. The comparison data were provided by CIRP.
The reports provides an overview of the findings from OSU’s participation in the CIRP Freshman Surveys. The full reports can be obtained from the OSU Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
