Why Don't Students Attend Boise State Despite Having Applied and Been Admitted? Research Report 2001-03.
Belcheir, Marcia J.
A survey of spring 2001 non-enrollees at Boise State University completed by 247 applicants who did not enroll found that students generally changed their mind about attending due to work schedules or the costs of attending. Family responsibilities were also an issue for many students. The admissions process was perceived as very satisfactory, although students who attempted to register on the Web were often very frustrated. To better serve student needs, respondents suggested more classes in general, particularly during evenings and weekends. Off-campus classes, especially Internet classes, were a popular suggestion. Parking was an issue for these students. Four appendixes contain the survey and lists of student reasons for not attending. (SLD)
