2022 NSU Fact Book

2022 FACT BOOK 109 During the last five years, enrollment has remained steady, with a slight increase from fall 2017 to fall 2021. (Figure 1 and Table 1). The most recently available IPEDS data show that, in fall 2020, Nova Southeastern University had the largest total fall-term enrollment of all private, nonprofit universities in Florida. Moreover, of nearly 1,700 private, four-year, not-for-profit institutions nationally, Nova Southeastern University ranked 22nd. When compared with the total number of students enrolled at Florida nonprofit, private four-year institutions in 2020, 11.5 percent were enrolled at Nova Southeastern University. Recent Enrollment Trends After reaching a peak enrollment of more than 29,000 students in fall 2009, changes in the economy, undergraduate admissions standards, and educational demands in certain areas have driven a period of steady enrollment reductions to 20,435 students in fall 2018 (Figure 2), although enrollment increased marginally in in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Similarly, full-time equivalent (FTE) has also increased marginally from 17,210 in 2017 to 18,071 in 2021 (Figure 3). Undergraduate enrollment declined steadily from fall 2013 to fall 2016, but increased increased more than 30 percent from 2017 to 2021 (Figure 2). This pattern is also reflected in FTE (Figures 3–4).
