Student Satisfaction Inventory

The Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) is conducted by an outside firm, Ruffalo Noel Levitz. All degree-credit students can take the survey every two years. The survey is taken online, outside of class time and is voluntary. The SSI measures students' levels of satisfaction and priorities, indicating how satisfied students are at Madison College as well as those issues most important to them. Our results are also benchmarked against other two-year institutions nationwide.

If you are a degree-credit student you can take the survey online. Your passcode is 'mc' followed by your student ID number.


Why should you take this survey?
A: Student voices matter. On issues related to your student experience, Madison College wants to know what is important and how well we are doing. The Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) team is committed to making the results actionable you see real benefits and improvement. Students who complete the survey will be entered in a drawing to win great prizes ($500 scholarship, Chromebook, $100 Amazon gift card and much more!)

What is the website (URL) to take the SSI survey?
A: Each student eligible to participate will be directly emailed the Ruffalo Noel Levitz survey link, along with their passcode. They may also access the link internally on Madison College’s website, the library’s website or from the student portal in myMadisonCollege.

What is the passcode for students to access the survey?
A: The passcode starts with mc and is followed by the seven-digit student ID, which may be found on the student OneCard. For example, if a student’s ID is: 1234567, the student’s passcode would be: mc1234567. Only degree-credit students can complete the survey. Non-degree credit students will receive an error if they enter their OneCard number. If a degree student cannot complete the survey, please contact
