Cooperative Institutional Research Program Freshman Survey
The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) Freshman Survey is administered by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA. Informing colleges and universities since 1966, the CIRP Freshman Survey has collected data on over 13 million students at over 1,900 institutions, and is the largest American study of higher education. The CIRP Freshman Survey is designed to provide comprehensive information on incoming first-year students.
Participating institutions receive a detailed profile of their entering freshman class, as well as national normative data for students in similar types of institutions.
