2  Introduction  Process  Results  Data Issues  Conclusions  Future Research

3 Introduction  National competition for best students  Indicator of institutional quality  Used in rankings, accountability, benchmarking  Our focus on top students – If we accept them and they do not attend, where are they enrolling?

4 The Process  Examined subsequent enrollment of students admitted by UF who did not enroll – Prospective First-time Freshmen Prospective Graduate Students Prospective First-Professional Students Law Dentistry Medicine Pharmacy Vet Medicine

5 The Process  Two Data Sources National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) State Databases in Florida  Official student data (Fall Semester)  Submitted by each institution in the state university system to the Florida Division of Colleges and Universities

6 Initially formed to simplify enrollment verification for student loans, assisting both higher ed institutions and lenders in a complex process. EnrollmentSearch – a service that institutional researchers can use to query the NSC database of 40 million postsecondary enrollment records. What is NSC?

7 Institutions must sign an agreement that will allow sharing of their data Data on prospective, current, and former students > 2500 institutions (or 86% currently enrolled students) Directory information (FERPA-compliant) What is NSC?

8 Enrollment of prospective students at our peer institutions Association of American Universities (AAU)  49 Active (82%)  6 Inactive (10%)  5 blocked ( 8%) What is NSC?
