Enrollment Management Newsletter - Issue 07

Tuesday, January 16, 2024

Enrollment Management Team,

I hope 2024 is off to a great start for you and your families. We are excited to welcome a new member of our Enrollment Management leadership team, Dr. Lisa Thompson, Director of the Educational Opportunity Program. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Thompson to the team!

Recruitment & Enrollment Update

Enrollment continues to be moving in a positive direction:

  • We are on track to hit, and likely exceed, our spring enrollment target of 6246, with 6434 students currently registered for spring (undergraduate and graduate).
  • Spring 2024: We have 55 first year deposits, up from 30 last spring. We have 336 transfer deposits, up from 324 last spring.
  • Fall 2024 Recruitment Update: We surpassed our application goal earlier than anticipated, with over 11,000 undergraduate applications for fall, compared to 8,854 at this point last year and 5,826 in 2022. This has resulted in a significant increase in accepted students, 7281 compared to 5,629 in 2023 and 3,577 in 2022.
  • I will provide more updates on fall transfer student trends as we get further in the cycle, as well as fall to spring retention.

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Update

The Department of Education has begun a soft launch of the new 2024-25 FAFSA, during which time the application will be available periodically to students and families. However, there may be longer than normal wait times to access the application and maintenance times when the form will not be available. We extended our suggested 2024-25 FAFSA filing deadline to February 15th to allow additional filing time due to potential delays with the new form. To support our students, we have updated our financial aid website to include some helpful steps and accompanying videos.
