Course Faculty Evaluation (CFE)

Course Faculty Evaluations are administered over a one-week period at the end of each semester or module. Professors may choose to open the CFE for their course either prior to or immediately following the due date of the final deliverable (exam, paper, project, etc.) for the course. Students will receive two emails informing them of the CFE policy, timeline and how to complete the CFE online. Students must pay careful attention to the deadlines of each individual CFE as students will not be permitted to fill out an evaluation after the deadline has passed.

All students must fill out an online Course Faculty Evaluation for each course for which they are registered. CFEs are a critical assessment tool of class and instructor quality that assists students in course selection. The tool is only effective if all students contribute their feedback. To ensure full participation, a committee of students recommended withholding grades for a period of one month from the closing of the course's CFE for students who do not complete the evaluation. This recommendation was approved by the Stern faculty.

The responses to all online evaluations are completely anonymous and confidential. Students may fill out the CFE online through the following link: https://ais.stern.nyu.edu


*CFEs may be accessible after the last day of class depending upon the due date of the final deliverable for the course. Please pay close attention to the dates listed in the reminder emails sent to your Stern email account for the exact CFE starting and closing dates for each course.
