On April 19, 2004, a cover letter from the Office of Institutional Research with the information about the Graduating Student Survey (GSS) hosting website, the GSS instrument, and a specific password was electronically mailed to 500 sampled students' reported email box whom had indicated plans to graduate in May 2004. Five followup email and postcard reminders were sent subsequently. At the end of the data collection period (May 19, 2004), 127 students had returned completed questionnaires. The net response rate is 26.3%. This is the first time this survey has been administered electronically. The results were analyzed and compared to the results from three previous studies.
