Application Counts at Four-Year and Two-Year Institutions, 2010. Noel-Levitz Report on Undergraduate Enrollment Trends
Noel-Levitz, Inc
Amid the uncertain economy, how much were undergraduate applications up or down in early March 2010 compared to a year earlier? To find out, Noel-Levitz conducted a Web-based poll of accredited postsecondary institutions across the U.S. as part of the firm's ongoing series of benchmark poll reports. The poll was conducted between March 2, 2010, and March 17, 2010. Highlights from the findings: (1) For three-quarters of respondents, applications received from first-year, first-time-in-college (FTIC) undergraduates for fall 2010 were even or running ahead compared to a year earlier--"but there was considerable variability in the outcomes reported"; (2) Compared to four-year institutions, two-year institutions reported the greatest variability in applications, with 25 percent seeing no change or a decline in applications and 25 percent reporting increases of 50 percent or more; and (3) Among four-year institutions, it was evident that institutions with smaller enrollments experienced greater variability in their results when compared to institutions with larger enrolments.
