Fall 2019 NCCP Commuter and Off-Campus Experience Survey

Overview: The National Clearinghouse for Commuter Programs (NCCP) at Western Illinois University-Quad Cities and HigherEdResearch.com have partnered to develop the first student survey focused exclusively on commuter and off-campus students. The NCCP Commuter and Off-campus Student Experience Survey (COSES) explores the opinions and experiences of commuter and off-campus students, helping institutions better understand their commuter population and the needs that are unique to off-campus students. This web-based "quik survey"℠ is designed to be simple, effective and deliver exceptional value for your institution. The survey instrument is designed to be succinct to ensure higher response rates and reduce information overload. Comparative data helps put your results into perspective. An optional customizable comparison report allows you to select a custom comparison group from the participant list in the current year. (minimum of 4 different participants, maximum of 6) The custom comparison group can be re-selected as often as necessary.
