Academic Affairs Enrollment Update

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your continued support of our enrollment efforts. Your outstanding work and commitment is reflected in this week’s reports. Going forward this summer, these reports will include total enrollment by department compared to the equivalent date last year. You will find total enrollment on the second tab. Here are the latest updates from the past two weeks:

Undergraduate Enrollment
New undergraduate enrollment is strong and we are on track to set some records this fall.

  • More than 5,300 admitted FTIC and transfer students have reserved their New Student Orientation (NSO) session. More information on the New Student Orientation process can be found at
  • NSO sessions begin June 14. The Orientation experience is a continuation of our recruitment efforts. Meet the College sessions should be welcoming and encouraging for students so that they leave confident in their decision to be a Niner and ready to return in August (or sooner if they’re taking summer courses).
  • Undergraduate Admissions has reviewed and admitted 250+ transfer students over the last two weeks and decisions will continue to be made throughout the summer. Departments are encouraged to continue outreach and connection with recently admitted transfer students, highlighting department/college opportunities and encouraging enrollment.

Continuing undergraduate enrollment is also strong with signs of increased retention of first, second, and third year students. Strong retention is critical to our overall enrollment efforts, and more importantly, it’s a signal that our students are successful. Please reach out to eligible students who have not registered for the fall and encourage them to seek assistance if needed.

Graduate Enrollment
New and continuing graduate enrollment is strong heading into the fall semester, and Graduate Admissions is continuing to process summer and fall applications until the August 1 deadline. A few reminders:

  • Make recommendations on admissions applications that are in a Ready for Review, Waitlist, Interview, or Hold for Additional Information status.
  • Communicate with new and continuing graduate students this summer to encourage them to register for classes.
  • Reach out to the Graduate Recruitment team to plan your fall recruitment events and get a head start on 2024 recruitment.
