Administering CSSE involves active collaboration between Student Engagement staff and participating institutions for about a 12-month time span. CSSE participants will be assisted with every aspect of preparing and administering CSSE, including invitations, reminder messages, and delivery of the online survey. This process ensures consistency and comparability among institutions and establishes a foundation for accurate comparisons.

SASSE also provides a secure web portal for uploading files and managing survey administration details from start to finish.
