Community College Survey of Student Engagement

We are asking students to take the Community College Survey of Student Engagement to help administrators, faculty, and staff at Berkeley City College find the best ways to make classes, programs and services better.  Your responses will remain confidential. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete the survey.  When you finish the survey, you will qualify for a gift card drawing.

The survey is now closed as of 6/7/2021.
