    Research Enrollment on the rise

    University sees results targeting minorities in neighboring states

    LOUISIANA La. - As UL readies for more stringent admissions standards next fall, its enrollment figures show a slight but steady increase since it last raised admission requirements in 1999.

    This fall, 16,561 students are enrolled in classes, with 2,745 of those listed as first-time freshmen, according to figures from Dan Rosenfield, dean of enrollment management.

    In 1999, the number of first-time freshmen was at 2,523 and total enrollment was 16,351. Although the university saw a dip in overall enrollment in 2000, it has since steadily increased.

    Rosenfield credits strong recruitment in neighboring states and the university's reputation as factors that boosted enrollment figures this semester.

    "What we're doing is targeting schools in areas which have significant minority populations both in this state and in Texas," Rosenfield said. "We're seeing some results."

    The university's listing in the Princeton Review's guide to the best colleges in the country didn't hurt either, he said.

    "More and more people are learning about us," Rosenfield said. "We're reaching out more than we ever did but we find out when we get there that they have heard of us and know what we've been doing."

    Default LSU story with mention of UL

    . . .Enrollment at the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette is up 353 students, to 16,561 for the fall semester.

    School officials cited national publicity over ULL's entry in a contest for robotic vehicles, the nomination of writer-in-residence Ernest Gaines for a Pulitzer Prize and $130 million in campus construction for the 2 percent increase. . . .

    Research More scholarships only part of solution to enrollment woes (Nebraska)

    The University of Nebraska-Lincoln isn't the only college struggling with enrollment.

    Some university officials try to take action before a drop begins.

    To amp up enrollment, admission officials at the University of New Orleans thought increased scholarships might attract more students, said Joe Cruse, the school's associate director of freshman admissions.

    The University of Louisiana Board of Regents recently approved measures to nearly triple its merit-based scholarship offers for next year.

    "Our enrollment has been pretty flat," Cruse said.

    With about 17,000 students, the school is the second largest university in Louisiana. Cruse said it's hard to get a school's name out, but more scholarship money helps.

    Peru State College in Nebraska took a similar tactic. The community college will let 50 rural high school students attend college programs without paying.

    Then, when these students are of college age, officials hope they will be familiar with the school and more likely to attend.

    UNL tries to lure students by offering more financial aid scholarships instead of merit-based offers, said Craig Munier, director of the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

    But UNL doesn't have enough funds to offer the same amount of scholarships as the New Orleans, which had extra money to increase the number of scholarships.

    He said the University of Nebraska Board of Regents recently increased need-based scholarships in the Tuition Assistance Program.

  12. Research Freshman summer enrollment jumps

    The University of Louisiana has seen a more than 60 percent jump in first-time freshman in summer school on the eve of its higher admission standards that begin in the fall.

    The overall enrollment this summer is 5,504, down about 4 percent from last year's 5,729, while first-time freshman enrollment jumped from 186 last year to 300 this year, according to figures released by Dan Rosenfield, dean of enrollment management.

    However, the new admission standards may not be the only explanation for the jump this summer, Rosenfield said.

    "There's no way that we know for sure," Rosenfield said. "There are a couple of factors. At some instances, we're looking at students enrolling this summer because they can enroll under the '04 standards. I also think there are a lot of students who want to get a head start."

  13. Research UL sees signs of strong enrollment for fall

    If the number of students attending freshman orientation is any indication, fall enrollment at University of Louisiana may not be as affected by new selective admissions standards as officials anticipated.

    Four-year university leaders across the state braced for enrollment drops with the implementation of the new standards this fall. UL President Ray Authement has said he expected a drop of about 400 freshmen.

    Last year's fall enrollment for first-time freshmen was 2,744. At least 2,400 incoming freshmen have attended one of six orientation sessions held over the summer, said Mary Langley Hernandez, UL director of orientation and transfer liaison. The university nearly didn't plan a sixth session because of expectations of a lower enrollment, she said.

    "We were pleasantly surprised that we had a full last session," she said.

    To be admitted this fall, all freshman must have completed the core of high school classes set by the state. The new rules also require freshmen to have a high school grade-point average of 2.5 or greater or an ACT composite score of 23 or greater. Otherwise, they must rank in the top 25 percent of their high school graduation class and require no more than one remedial course, but no student with less than a 2.0 GPA can be admitted.

    Dean of Enrollment Management Dan Rosenfield has been careful not to share his projections for the fall, but said he was encouraged by enrollment so far.

    Research UL accepting displaced New Orleans students

    the University of Louisianais accepting college students who had planned to attend universities in New Orleans this semester.

    UL Dean of Enrollment Management Dan Rosenfield said newly registered students would have a limited selection of courses and be coming in two weeks late. ULL began classes Aug. 22.

    Rosenfield said incoming students -- who are being processed on the third floor of Martin Hall -- are encouraged to register by Friday.

    "We have streamlined the enrollment process for those students," he said. "… Hopefully the process won't take more than a few hours."

    I heard 750, but the number will possible go over 1000 by mid-semester...I hear we will be hosting some New Orleans-based teachers to teach summer-style short classes during the second half of the semester.

    Research UL enrollment down .9 percent due to the 800 turned away

      BATON ROUGE "" University officials say they are not surprised by the almost 7 percent drop in enrollment this fall for several reasons, not the least of which is that thousands of students were evacuated when hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the state last year.

    But even without the storms, some decrease was expected, said Sally Clausen, president of the University of Louisiana System.

    "We're all toughening up on standards," Clausen said of stricter entry requirements being enforced at all institutions.

    The best way to build your enrollment base is to create a smarter Freshman. If you have more incoming Freshmen who don't need the "stop-over" in the community colleges, then that will help in increasing enrollment. Creating such a wave of smarter college freshmen has to be started at the High School Freshman level.

    How we can put more money into our educational system, that is a good question. I think that it would be more than just raising or redirecting tax dollars. I think a good start would be to rid the state of the corruption and the "ol-boy system". But a victory in that war would be unlikely.

    Whatever the problems are in the state, they are most likely LSU's fault, for sure. HAHA

    Research UL denies 1,152 freshmen applicants, enrollment edges up by 33

      Southeastern Louisiana University's enrollment dipped more than 2 percent while the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette saw a slight increase of 33 students from 2006.

    The University of Louisiana System, which includes Southeastern Louisiana, ULL and six other schools, remained relatively flat, declining in enrollment by just more than 1 percent overall.

    With the largest enrollment in the state, the state college system fell from 80,840 students to 79,924 this fall, according to statistics released Wednesday.

    ULL is the system's largest school with 16,355; Southeastern Louisiana is next with 14,757 students this fall. SLU had 15,118 students last year.

    Research UL denies 1,152 freshmen applicants

      UL's enrollment remained steady two years after the university implemented selective admissions, but students continued to flock to community college in growing numbers.

    Preliminary enrollment counts show an increase of 33 students at UL compared to last fall, while South Louisiana Community College had a fall enrollment boost of 579 students, or nearly 25 percent, setting another record fall enrollment for the college.

    As expected, the new admissions policies continue to boost community college enrollment as students academically unprepared for four-year colleges are encouraged to take prep courses at community colleges.

    At SLCC, the demand for courses at the college meant that capacity in courses was increased where possible and more instructors were needed, but it also meant that some students couldn't enroll.
    "Because of space, the need for labs and specialized classrooms and faculty shortages in some areas, we had to turn some students away," said Jan Brobst, SLCC chancellor.

    In particular, the college had a hard time responding to the demand for math courses, Brobst said.

    Brobst said the college encouraged students to consider evening, weekend or online courses.

    "I think clearly space is a concern. We are good stewards of the public dollar and we are looking at our space utilization and really trying to do what we can," Brobst said.

    Research UL graduate school sees enrollment increase

      Efforts to increase enrollment in the UL Graduate School have resulted in numbers for spring 2008 indicating the Graduate School has grown by nearly 11 percent from last spring.

    As of this week, 1,433 students were enrolled in the Graduate School. That's an increase of 133 students from this time last year.

    "This increase is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of the Graduate School staff and also each graduate department at the university," said Dr. C. Eddie Palmer, dean of the Graduate School. "We implemented a 'recruiters all' mission. Everyone is helping to grow the Graduate School."

    Additionally, UNIVERSITY of LOUISIANA President Ray Authement approved an increase in the number of assistantships offered and also increased stipends.
