Surveys

Sept. 24, 2018 -- Inside Higher Ed’s 2018 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors, conducted with Gallup, examines the views of top admissions administrators on a wide range of topics. A copy of the survey can be found here.

Inside Higher Ed also conducted a survey of high school counselors with Hanover Research. A copy of that report can be downloaded here.

On Thursday, Oct. 25, at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed will present a free webcast to discuss the results of the surveys. Sign up here.

The Inside Higher Ed survey of admissions directors was made possible in part by support from Salesforce, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, and the Educational Testing Service.
