SEM Update: November and December 2023

Tuesday, November 28, 2023

 

Greetings Colleagues,

The final stretch of the fall semester is upon us. I hope you were able to enjoy time with friends and family during break last week. To build upon President Macpherson’s recent message highlighting the enrollment success from fall 2023, I have added the Fall 2023 SUNY Comparison information at the end of this message for your review.

Recruitment Updates:

We are on track to achieve our incoming student targets for the Spring 2024 semester.

Targets Target Numbers Deposits of 11/27
First Year Target 25 28
Transfer Target 275 174
Graduate Target 175 160

For Fall 2024, undergraduate applications are trending ahead of this point last fall, with 8331 applications. The substantial number of early applications is a great sign and places a substantial demand on the Undergraduate Admissions staff to prioritize application review to ensure we deliver decisions in a timely manner. We are on track to hit our goal of 10,000 applications.

Thank you for your help making Fall Open Houses successful, with more prospective students and families in attendance than last fall (602 prospective students and 1548 people compared to 461 students and 1140 people a year ago). In my conversations with families throughout the day, they repeatedly commented on how friendly and welcoming the students, staff and faculty were towards them during their time on campus. Families praised the event’s organization, and they appreciated the opportunity to visit academic spaces with faculty, which was a distinguishing factor.

The undergraduate free application period ends on December 1st, but waivers will continue to be available for specific groups: https://www.suny.edu/attend/apply-to-suny/fee-waiver/

Save the date for Spring Accepted Student Days:

  • March 9th
  • April 13th

Retention Updates:

At the November 30th Joint Planning and Budget Committee (JPBC) meeting, there will be a presentation on the most recent student retention trends. JPBC meets via Teams at 8:30am, and all are welcome to attend: Click here to join the meeting. Lastly, we are excited about our participation in the AASCU Student Success Equity Intensive program this year, as we strive to close equity gaps and increase our student persistence rates.

Wishing you a smooth end of the semester,

Dr. Sara Kelly
Vice President for Enrollment Management
