CEMR 2010 Enrollment Plan Report Prepared for the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Committee and Graduate Program and Research Committee
Agenda Enrollment background 2010 WVU Goals and CEMR Plans Progress toward goals Threats to meeting our goals
Undergraduate Enrollment - UgE Retention effect on discipline major enrollment (DME)
Graduate enrollment - GdE Significant loss in MS enrollment
Total enrollment picture Total enrollment is stable even with MS enrollment declines but needs to grow
The challenge! The University goal for CEMR is a 12.3% increase in F05 enrollment and instructional FTE by Fall of 2010 Fall 2005 enrollment & instructional FTE levels were 2749 students: 2012 undergraduate & 737 graduate students 1895 instructional FTE * # of undergraduate sch/15 or # of grad sch/12 By Fall 2010 CEMR must Increase enrollment by 354 students from Fall 05 enrollment of 2749 Increase instructional FTE by 240 from Fall 05 instructional FTE of 1859
The CEMR plan Enrollment growth must occur in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Undergraduate efforts will focus on improving the quality and quantity of freshman class majors, Engineering, General engineering, Pre-Biom & Pre-CS freshman to sophomore retention, sophomore to junior retention and increasing our first time transfers through articulation agreements. Graduate efforts will focus on increasing graduate enrollment and the enrollment ratio of Ph.D. to Master’s degree.
Engineering major Engineering (Code 3040) enrollment by about 13% from 274 (F05) to 320 (F10) Responsibility: Migri Prucz Plan: How: Increased HS outreach in WV through HS career fairs Contact with minority or under-represented groups Focused mailing to inquiry database, etc. Earlier branding of potential students
General Engineering Maintain General Engineering (Code 3049) enrollment at about 240 through F(10) Responsibility: Migri P. Plan: How: Continue current activities of mailing, on- campus visitation days, etc.
Pre-Biometrics Pre-Biometrics (Code 3090) enrollment from 7 in Fall 2005 to 21 by Fall 2010 Responsibility: Migri Prucz & LDCSEE Plan: How: Under development
Pre-CS Pre-CS (Code 3034) enrollment from 25 in Fall 2005 to 50 by Fall 2010 Responsibility: Migri Prucz & LDCSEE Plan: How: Under development
Quality of FTFT freshman average ACT/SAT math scores of 3040 majors from 28.9/651 (F05) to 31/665 (F10) Responsibility: Migri P. and ADAA Plan: Increase # of students with ACT/SAT math scores >= 32/720 from 32 in 2005 to 48 by 2010; Increase # of students with ACT/SAT math scores between 29-32/ from 80 in 2005 to 120 by 2010; How: STAR program; Freshman scholarship; etc.
“STAR” program for residents 1 st time done was in F05 for 06/07 recruits HS GPA 3.8 or greater; ACT/SAT math score of 30/700 or greater; and ACT/SAT composite or total score of 30/1340 or greater 38 invited 13 attended (34%) 9 made academic and housing deposits (69%)
Quality of FTFT recruits average ACT/SAT math scores of 3049 majors from 22.6/539 (F05) to 23.5/545(F10) Responsibility: Migri P. ADAA Plan: Reduce # of students with ACT/SAT math scores of ≤ 22/500 How: Under discussion in the EC Raise ACT/SAT math entrance requirements to 22/500 wait list students with ACT/SAT math scores ≤ 22/500
Freshman retention Maintain Fr/Soph retention of 3040 majors at or above 73% Responsibility: Robin H. Plan: Keep retention of 3040 majors above 73% annually How: Continue initiatives started since 2003; Annually improve the academic quality of the FTFT 3040 students
Retention efforts: Grade in Math 155 classes
Retention efforts: GPA in Math 155 classes
Freshman retention Fr/Soph retention of 3049 majors from 55% (04/05 AY) to 61% (10/11 AY) Responsibility: Robin H. Plan: % 58% 59% 60% 60% 61% How: Continue initiatives started since 2003; Annually improve the academic quality of the FTFT 3049 students
Freshman retention Fr/Soph retention of 3034 and 3090 majors from about 40% (F05) to 65% (F10) Responsibility: LDCSEE Plan: % 45% 50% 55% 60% 65% How: Changed requirements to move from Pre-CS to CS; Other initiatives being developed
Sophomore to Junior retention Benchmarked sophomore losses in the majors over three years from 2000/01 to 2002/03
Our target Soph. to Jr. losses Asked chairs to indicate what they thought were reasonable losses in the majors and created a target retention curve
Retention – major soph. cohort study to Sr. year Majors initiating sophomore retention plans with the 2006/07 academic year.
Sophomore to Junior losses in the majors Discipline major sophomore losses across the college from an average of about 20% to 12% by 09/10 AY Responsibility: Individual departments Plan: individual to departments depending on benchmarking performance Progress will be monitored by my office and reported annually
MS enrollment Maintain or have small growth in the MS graduate enrollment from its current level level of about 540 students in F(05) Responsibility: Departments and College Plan:
Ph.D. enrollment Ph.D. enrollment from 184 students in Fall 2005 to 280 by Fall 2010 Responsibility: Departments and College Plan
Total Graduate enrollment Increase graduate enrollment by about 9.5% from 739 in Fall 2005 to 808 by Fall 2010 Responsibility: Departments and College Plan: Goal for 2006/07 is for my office to bring renewed college and department focus on graduate recruiting and retention

Progress toward 06 goals Engineering major enrollment Increase from 274 to 280 – actual was 313 # of students with SAT/ACT math scores 720/32 Surpass 05 levels of 32 students – actual was 28 # of students with SAT/ACT math scores between or Surpass 05 levels of 80 students – actual was 91
Progress toward 06 goals Reduce General Engineering students with ACT/SAT math scores ≤ 500 Have fewer than the 67 students in 2005 – actual number in 2006/07 was only 55 students 05/06 Fr-Soph retention Keep Engineering major at or above 73% - actual was 74% Increase General Engineering major from 55% to 57% - actual was 61%

The results- enrollment Head count Majors CEMR Plan CEMR Actual Instructional FTE CEMR Plan CEMR Actual Fall Under grad Grad Increase Met our goals except for graduate enrollment
Other positive news In 2005 WVU’s undergraduate enrollment level broke the ASEE national top 50 largest BS programs at #48 CEMR undergraduate enrollment growth is exceeding our peers.
Threats to meeting our goals Nationally B.S. enrollment growth turned negative in The projections are for several more years of negative enrollment growth. Even though we offer a tremendous product to potential students it is likely that we will not be able to buck that national B.S. enrollment trend for long if it continues.
ASEE undergraduate data
Threat to meeting our goals Nationally engineering MS enrollment growth rate has been negative for the last 3 yrs recruiting into a negative growth trend is tough
ASEE Masters data
Threats to meeting our goals By 2010 all the states from which we recruit the best will be facing declining HS school populations
