Enhance enrollment and retention outcomes by improving the attendance at the new student orientation (NSO).

 

 

 

 

 

 

The number of invitations sent to new entering students will be compared to the number of students attending each respective NSO.

Mailing lists for the NSO invitations will be compared to the sign-in sheets at the NSO for two successive fall terms. A percentage comparison will be made for each year.

3.3 Increase student enrollment, retention, and graduation

Based upon the comparative rate of attendance at each of the two NSO sessions, a 1% or more increase is expected to occur in attendance.

Based upon the resultant increase or decrease in attendance, improved communications i.e. mail, email or web will be sent to subsequent new students. An additional refinement of the NSO presentation may also be implemented to increase attendance.

NOTE: assessment should focus on effectiveness, efficiency, constituent satisfaction, or impact on functions, services, processes or student learning.
