RUN (Recruitment Update Numbers)

 

Welcome to the next update of The RUN Report.  This week Dr. Chris Pfautz and Aaron Rosenthal will be providing you a very powerful, but understated tool in the fight towards higher enrollment yields.

 

But first, here is our current admissions progress by college, leading into the Fall 2017 term. These numbers are current as of 5/26/17.

And now for the heart of this week’s update: how to get your hands on the contact information of those students who have submitted an application but have not yet enrolled.

 

This may sound like a pipe dream, but we assure you the information is at your fingertips and the process is fairly easy.  We have created both a new report in Quinn called the “Not Enrolled Lookup” AND a video tutorial explaining how to use this report. 

(To get into Quinn, you need 2 things:  proper access and a Silverlight plugin for IE, which is the optimal browser.  Your college’s IT help desk can assist you with both items.)

The RUN Report — Tutorial #1 

 

 

Now, the challenging part starts here.  We need to contact these students to nudge them forward.

At a current system-wide yield of just over 8%, we have approximately 50,000 not-yet enrolled students.

 

Your college’s portion of this population may be a manageable amount…  Or it may be thousands (upon thousands) of students.  How your college chooses to make contact is up to you, but now is the time to make it happen.

We will be back next week for another RUN update and a new look at your admissions data.

 The RUN Report — May 19, 2017

 

Welcome to the first edition of The RUN Report.  This project was kickstarted by the Recruitment and Enrollment Management Workshop by Ruffalo Noel Levitz where we explored different ways to leverage data in order to increase enrollment.  To keep that momentum going, Dr. Chris Pfautz and Aaron Rosenthal will be providing relevant admissions data on an ongoing basis using both Quinn and The Resource Center to showcase and communicate the work. 

For starters, we have outlined our current admissions progress by college, leading towards the Fall 2017 term.  As you can see, we all have a lot of ground to cover in the upcoming weeks and months.

These numbers are current as of 5/19/17. 

 

 

This visualization (below) displays the trend in system-wide admissions over the past 10 years, as well as, our current progress into the Fall 2017 term.  

The bars  represent application counts and enrolled counts while the overlaid line shows the percentage that have applied and enrolled (yield).  This data is current as of 5/19/17.
