The 2014-15 Graduate Program Survey was administered by the University of Northern Iowa to graduate students attending the fall and spring commencements during the 2014-15 academic year. The purpose of the study was to gain feedback about their respective graduate programs and the skills they obtained as graduate students at the University of Northern Iowa. The survey specifically focused on two main areas in the students' lives, which included academic life and social activity. The survey results help the University to provide a better graduate experience for future graduate students.

This survey was given prior to the commencement ceremonies, allowing students to think about their experience at the University of Northern Iowa. In December, Fall 2014 graduate students were given the survey before walking across stage. In May, Spring 2015 graduate students were e-mailed the survey, which allowed them to complete the survey within a two week period around graduation day. For the 2014-2015 academic year, 150 graduate students completed the survey out of the 354 students who attended graduation, with a total response rate of 42.4%
