New Othot enrollment report outlines significant trends based on institution size, geography and use of data analysis for incoming fall 2020 classes.
Pittsburgh, PA (December 14, 2020) -- Othot, the leading provider of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence solutions for colleges and universities, today released the 2020 Higher Ed Enrollment Trends Pulse Report, which contains several important findings based on fall 2020 college enrollments.
Key findings in the Report include:
“Our culture is rooted in data-based decision making, so it seems right and natural to share what the data show about fall enrollments,” said Fred Weiss, Othot President and CEO. “We think there are significant outcomes for schools in this report including strong evidence that schools – using data science - can make major progress in growing their enrollment, even in this exceptionally difficult national climate.”
The new Report reviews data for institutions using Othot’s student-centered AI enrollment analytics, helping schools understand which students are most likely to enroll as well as how and to reach them to further improve their likelihood to enroll. Based on the Report, that information paid dividends.
“It was a challenging year across the board,” said Weiss. “But I would be willing to wager that most schools would be giddy about seeing enrollment rates two or three times better than national averages. There were some very bright spots, schools such as Texas Tech and Florida Institute of Technology, that planned and executed and saw very strong growth, up more than 3% year over year, which is pretty amazing.”
