The Latest Update on Fall Enrollment

Dear Colleagues,

We are entering a critical phase in our enrollment process, ensuring students who have accepted admission for fall matriculate as expected. Your help is still needed and appreciated.

Please take a look at the spreadsheet for your program data for the latest enrollment information, as of this week, to understand how you can focus outreach to optimize our efforts.

Undergraduate Enrollment

  • The National Intent to Enroll Deadline was May 1. We have a record number of commitments from first-year students. While it is expected that some students will change their plans, our efforts are focused on minimizing summer melt and encouraging next steps to enrollment. We will also continue to admit exceptional applicants and allow students to submit an intent to enroll.
  • Undergraduate Admissions continues to process and review transfer applications on a daily basis. Admitted transfer students are not subject to the May 1 Intent to Enroll deadline, so we will continue to see those numbers increase over the course of the summer.
  • Departments are encouraged to focus outreach by:
    Sending welcome messages to recently admitted students – especially transfer students – who have not submitted an Intent to
    • Enroll, highlighting department/college opportunities.
    • Sending congratulations messages to students who have submitted their Intent to Enroll.
    • Offering opportunities to connect with the academic department through virtual sessions or in-person visit opportunities.

Graduate Enrollment

National Signing Day was April 15, and enrollment held steady through that significant date. We need your help to enroll more students this fall by:

  • Reviewing and making admissions recommendations on the 300 applications in the Ready for Review stage;
  • Recruiting more applicants by using established pipelines and communicating with prospects in Slate; and
  • Connecting with admitted and continuing students to encourage them to enroll. Graduate Program Directors receive an eligible-to-register email weekly and are highly encouraged to reach out to their students and urge them to register.
