A goal at MSDB is to continually improve our student's educational opportunities. The annual Graduate Survey is an important part of that process. It tells us how well we prepared you for college, a job, and for living independently. The information helps us make changes that better meet the needs of our students. Your privacy is important to us, and your answers can remain anonymous.
For more information, or if you need an alternate way to complete your survey, please call 1-800-882-MSDB
