UC Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES)


The 2022 University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) is currently underway. UCUES is an official UC survey. It is an opportunity for you to provide honest and confidential feedback about your UCSB experience. It is important that as many of our students complete this survey as possible, because it has the potential to provide valuable feedback to improve our campus.

"DID YOU KNOW? 83% of UC Santa Barbara undergraduates are satisfied with their Academic Experience – among the most highly rated of all the UC campuses. [Spring 2020 UCUES]"


The University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) is an online survey administered every other Spring quarter at UC Santa Barbara and each of the other undergraduate UC campuses. This survey is a unique tool for better understanding the academic and co-curricular experiences of undergraduates at UC Santa Barbara.


The survey asks about being a student at UC Santa Barbara: your academic work, access to classes, your interactions with faculty and peers, and your satisfaction with different aspects of your college experience.
