SFS are one of the ways that you can provide feedback directly to your professor about what works and what needs to be improved in your course. Not only that, but if you complete all of your course surveys you can even enter a draw for a chance to win $1,000 Fanshawe Bucks. Fanshawe Bucks can be used towards tuition or other Fanshawe College purchases.

All your surveys can be done online. You will receive an email invitation through your FOL email account with a secure link to each course survey.  If you are already logged in to a Fanshawe system that uses the same credentials you will not be required to log in again.  If you're not logged in or you change your password, then you will be prompted to enter your Fanshawe username and password.

Course surveys are sent out at approximately 60% of course completion.

You will receive one survey link for all of your courses this term.  Each course survey will take approximately 3 to 5 minutes to complete.

If a course is delivered face-to-face, you will be asked to provide feedback on your professor using a scale. The following is a list you will be asked to rate on that scale.
