Deposits/Confirmed Students as of May 1 at Four-Year Institutions, 2010. Noel-Levitz Report on Undergraduate Enrollment Trends
Noel-Levitz, Inc
This report provides an early indication of fall 2010 enrollments in higher education by documenting changes in the numbers of deposited/confirmed students at four-year colleges and universities as of May 1, 2010, versus May 1, 2009, along with changes in admitted students, applicants, and projected summer melt. The report is based on a Web-based poll Noel-Levitz conducted of college and university admissions offices at accredited, four-year postsecondary institutions. The poll was conducted between May 4 and May 17, 2010, as part of Noel-Levitz's ongoing series of benchmark polls. Highlights from the findings: (1) May 1 deposits/confirmations from first-year, first-time-in-college students increased for two-thirds of institutions, but the remaining third that saw declines included nearly half of small public institutions and half of Midwest institutions; (2) Two-thirds of respondents expected higher-than-usual summer melt, led by nearly three-quarters of respondents from small public institutions; (3) Yield rates (from admitted to deposited/confirmed) rose for only about half of institutions. In addition, yield rates for public institutions were consistently higher than they were for private institutions, though more private institutions than public institutions reported increases; (4) The majority of large institutions met their May 1 goal for deposits/confirmations, but the majority of small institutions fell short; (5) Most institutions admitted more students and received more applications in 2010 than in 2009; and (6) Deposits/confirmations came in slower than they normally do for over half of public institutions.
