It was found that for fall term 1997, the university had 442 FTIC freshmen, up from 215 for fall term 1995. Approximately 70 percent of all 1997 FTIC freshmen were female, and nearly 85 percent were permanent residents of Florida.

Nearly all of the FTIC freshmen in the College of Professional and Liberal Studies were full-time students, while nearly half of the FTIC freshmen in the College of Career Development were part-time students. The modal age of FTIC freshmen in the College of Professional and Liberal Studies was 18, while the modal age for FTIC freshmen in the College of Career Development was 30. (Contains 10 references.)
