The CIRP Freshman Survey

The CIRP Freshman Survey (TFS) is designed for administration to incoming first-year students before they start classes. The instrument collects extensive information that allows for a snapshot of what incoming students are like before they experience college. The College of Charleston administers the survey in paper format during orientation to all first-time, full-time freshmen.
