Graduating Undergraduates

Fast Facts Website Image

The Senior Student Satisfaction Survey (SSSS) was first deployed in 2014 to capture graduating students' sentiments about their educational career at Old Dominion University. It is administered to undergraduate students in the last term of their degree program.

All graduating seniors are strongly encouraged to complete the assessment. The data contained in this Fast Facts report include those who have complied. Though deployed in 2014, some questions have since been modified or added to capture more student opinion. The data represent aggregated graduate perceptions from Spring 2014 to Spring 2022.

NOTE: The sentiments contained herein are self-reported student perceptions.

These data are brought to you by The Office of Institutional Effectiveness &, (757) 683-3322.

Senior Assessment Survey

The Senior Assessment is a University requirement that measures students' satisfaction with their degree programs and with their overall University experience. It is completed during the semester in which the student's degree is conferred. Results are compiled and reported annually, with each annual report including responses from the August, December, and May graduating cohorts.

Results are disaggregated in two ways: College and Modality

  • College refers to the College from which the student's degree was conferred
  • Modality refers to how students complete the majority of their coursework. This determination is made by utilizing both a student's admissions type as well as a self-response within the survey itself.
