Student Data

Disapproved

12/05/13: Passed

12/13/13: Disapproved

Recommendations:

Increase admitted rate of the first time freshmen (FTIC) by about 10% for at least next two years and analyze the data for the following years.

 

Rationale:

Information presented here based on UNF published data: SPA committee did not have raw data. A p-value of .05 or below implies statistical significance of the tests.

Conclusion on data: FTIC Profile

Statistical analysis is not possible on the average data for profile analysis without any information on the variability of the data. With very small variability in the data it is possible to conclude it as an improvement on FTIC profile.  But it is hard to prove significantly from data in the table.

STUDENT LIFE

 

Percentages of first-time, first-year (freshman) degree-seeking students and degree-seeking undergraduates enrolled in who fit the following categories: 

 

Fall 2009

 
First-time, first-year Undergraduates (freshman) students  

Percent who are from out of state (exclude international/nonresident         

aliens from the numerator and denominator)

Undergraduates

3%       2.6%

Percent who live in college-owned, -operated, or -affiliated housing 66%     27%
Percent who live off campus or commute 34%    73%
   
Fall 2010  
First-time, first-year Undergraduates (freshman) students  

Percent who are from out of state (exclude international/nonresident         

aliens from the numerator and denominator)

Undergraduates

2.4%   2.5%

Percent who live in college-owned,-operated, or -affiliated housing 67%    19%
Percent who live off campus or commute 33%     81%
   

Fall 2011

 
First-time, first-year Undergraduates (freshman) students  

Percent who are from out of state (exclude international/nonresident         

aliens from the numerator and denominator)

Undergraduates

2.8%      2.5%

Percent who live in college-owned, -operated, or -affiliated housing 64%      18%
Percent who live off campus or commute 36%       82%
   

Fall 2012

 
First-time, first-year Undergraduates (freshman) students  

Percent who are from out of state (exclude international/nonresident         

aliens from the numerator and denominator)

Undergraduates

2.5%      2.4%

Percent who live in college-owned, -operated, or -affiliated housing 90%       20%
Percent who live off campus or commute 10%        80%
   

                                           

Conclusions on data:  Percent of FTIC on campus

 

1. Proportion of FTIC on campus has not changed from 2009 to 2010.

Reported p-value is >.88

 

2. Proportion of FTIC on campus has not changed from 2010 to 2011.
Reported p-value is >.66

 

3. Proportion of FTIC on campus has increased significantly from 2011 to 2012. Reported p-value is <.0001.  Mandatory on-campus living may or may not explain a decline in freshmen enrollment at UNF in 2013 but definitely is an indicator of it as shown in the analysis of the data.
