20 CCSU Fall Headcount Enrollment by Level and Status 1,902 1,013

21 CCSU Fall Headcount Enrollment of Non-Matriculated Students

22 Change in Fall Headcount Enrollment by Level and Status Significant declines were observed between 2001 and 2007 in non-matriculated students and part-time undergraduates Part-time grad students peaked at 1777 in 2003 and have since declined 14% to slightly below 2001 levels* Change (N) Change (Pct) Graduate, Non-Matriculated % Graduate, Part-Time* (matriculated) % Graduate, Full-Time (matriculated) % Undergraduate, Non-Matriculated % Undergraduate, Part-Time (matriculated) % Undergraduate, Full-Time (matriculated) %

31 Projected Change in SAT Scores by Change in Demographics Assume that mean SAT scores for students for each race/ethnicity and gender category remain at CCSU 2007 levels. * Assumes all HS grads complete all required coursework for college entry

32 Predictive power of SAT Scores (1) SAT Scores have predicted power for students who graduate in the top half of their HS class SAT is not predictive for students who graduate in the bottom of their HS class – they perform equally poorly regardless of SAT score

33 Predictive power of SAT Scores (2)

34 Implications Population shift will change the demographic profile of CCSU Student body will become more diverse Increased competition for qualified students among all institutions Additional effort and new recruitment strategies will likely be needed simply to maintain enrollment and quality indicators at current levels
