With the exception of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), Nebraskas public institutions draw 65% to 95% of their first-time freshmen from within their designated geographic service areas (GSAs). UNL is an institution that serves the entire state in terms of freshmen enrollment. First-time freshmen who delay going to college more than 12 months after high school graduation are most likely to attend an institution whose service area encompasses their county of residence. The enrollment patterns of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Metropolitan Community College are distinctly similar to the enrollment patterns of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Southeast Community College.
The Commission hopes that the information contained in this report is useful to policymakers in Nebraska, as well as to Nebraska institutions as they evaluate and plan their freshmen recruitment strategies. The complete Nebraska Report on the Residence and Migration of First-Time Freshmen Fall 2006 will be available December 7, 2007 on the Commissions Web site:
