National College Health Assessment (NCHA) 2021



Your experience, your health and well-being, and your voice matter. Be heard!

This spring 2021 quarter, UCSF will be participating in the American College Health Association’s National College Health Assessment (NCHA).  This survey is completed at campuses across the nation, and the UC system has been administering the survey as a coordinated effort for several years.  This is the first year that UCSF will be joining this critical system-wide effort.

Why should I take the NCHA Survey?

This survey is vital to assessing the health and well-being of our students and provides the campus with key data. In addition, these data are used to help tailor health and well-being services and support for our students.  The survey provides an opportunity for students to give direct feedback about their experience at UCSF and impact how resources will be prioritized and allocated in the future.

How do I take the NCHA Survey?

When the survey launches, you will receive an email from the American College Health Association (ACHA), inviting you to take the survey between April 21 and May 12. The survey takes less than an hour to complete and includes questions related to your physical and mental health, and to your experience throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please check your inbox and spam and lookout for the survey from [email protected] or [email protected]. Your responses to the survey are de-identified and anonymous.  For more information about the survey, visit the ACHA NCHA homepage.

Are there incentives to complete the survey?

In appreciation for participating, each student who completes the survey by the May 12, 2021 deadline will be automatically entered in an opportunity drawing. We will be giving away ten (10) $100 Visa gift cards!
