Several offices across campus work collaboratively to assist in the recruitment, admission, enrollment and academic scheduling of our students. By purposefully aligning institutional resources towards enhancing the quality and diversity of the student body, we strive to recruit a proper mix of students as a step toward enhancing the retention and success of all students. We do our utmost to improve student-learning experiences, and engage them in creative, discovery-based and research experiences in a vibrant educational setting. Strategic enrollment management practices enable us to improve recruitment, retention and graduation rates of our undergraduate student population. One of our primary goals is to help students and parents figure out how to cover the cost of education through financial aid coupled with a transparent billing process. The key offices in enrollment management are the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid, the Office of the University Registrar, University Summer Sessions, and the Office of Degree Management.
