NCHA Survey

National College Health Assessment


What is NCHA?

The National College Health Assessment (NCHA) is a national research survey organized by the American College Health Association to assist college health service providers, health educators, counselors, and administrators in collecting data about their students' habits, behaviors, and perceptions on prevalent health topics. 

Questions on the NCHA survey cover the following topics:

  • demographics/personal profile
  • alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
  • weight, nutrition, and exercise
  • mental health
  • personal safety and violence


Is the survey confidential?

The survey is completely voluntary and confidential! So feel free to give us your honest feedback!  The results of the survey will be reported in aggregate form only, and you will not be identified. 


Why is it important that I fill out the survey?

The NCHA is a survey designed to assess student health behaviors in order to provide better services and support for Baylor University students. The information collected from this survey will be used to develop wellness programs and services for Baylor University. More importantly, they show us what we’re doing right and what we need to improve upon

All students who submit a survey will be automatically entered in a random drawing for one of ten $25 gift cards to Starbucks!
