Survey of New Students

Congratulations! UC Berkeley welcomes you.

The Survey is Now Closed

About the Survey

Each year, via the Survey of New Students (SONS), we ask incoming undergraduates about their experiences to determine how this important transition is going. The SONS is also how we learn what resources are most helpful to you, and what additional areas of support may be needed across our diverse student body.  As an appreciation of your time, you will be automatically entered into the various drawings to win prizes after you submit the completed survey!

Please note: Prizes may be subject to applicable taxation which will be the sole responsibility of the prize winner. Prizes will be reviewed by the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office to see if any changes to financial aid packages are required.
