The CIRP Freshmen Survey

The CIRP Freshman Survey (TFS) is a national survey housed at the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA. Tulane annually administers the survey to incoming first-year students before they start classes. The survey instrument collects extensive information that allows for a snapshot of Tulane incoming students in the following areas: established behaviors in high school, academic preparedness, admissions decisions, expectations of college, interactions with peers and faculty, student values and goals, and concerns about financing college.
