It has been an interesting and challenging year for college admission. As we prepare to welcome our incoming classes to campus in the fall, we are still in conversations with students who have not yet decided about where to enroll. Because the pandemic has created complications for students and their families, we decided to extend our admitted student acceptance deadline to June 1. While we are below the targeted first-time-in-college goal at this time, we anticipate receiving more deposits over the next several weeks. The number of transfer student applications is strong, as a deposit for our graduate programs, including the new Master of Public Health degree. I look forward to sharing specific information about the incoming classes with you after June 1.
The strategic enrollment planning process is wrapping up this month, and we will share a report with the campus community this summer. We are creating a vision for the next five years to provide a sense of direction and confidence for meeting our enrollment goals moving forward. I am optimistic about our outlook for the future.
Thank everyone for your efforts to engage prospective students and their families during this complicated recruitment process. We have often heard of the great experiences prospective students have had with so many of you; it truly makes a difference. We will continue to work with many students over the summer, assisting those who have already decided to join us in the fall, and will work with prospective Loggers to support them as they make their final choice about the coming year. Your continued partnership over the next several months is very appreciated.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly.
To the Heights!
Matthew Boyce, Ph.D. | Vice President for Enrollment.
