First Enrollment Express of the Season, a Great Success!

Good afternoon FPU family!

On behalf of the Visalia regional campus, we would like to thank everyone who attended our Enrollment Express event on November 4! By all accounts, we feel it was a great success and it would not have been possible without the collaboration of every service department that was present.

As our processing team works to finalize a few last-minute applications, we can report some very good numbers that came out of our event:


Total attended = 42 students

Total admitted (20/SP & 20/FA) = 38 (possibly 1-2 more pending)

Conversion rate = 90% (record conversion rate!)


Attendance breakdown (Degree Completion)

CRIM = 4                           LA = 13

OL = 3                                MGT = 3

ECD = 4                              SWO/SWE = 9

HCA = 1                             BSN = 1


We took a closer look at our service times at this event, paying attention to what time students checked in and what time they checked out of the event. Our teams can be credited with record processing times, with wait times ranging from 1-3 hours to be admitted from start to finish, this is amazing work! Our recruitment and advising teams went above and beyond to ensure each student had a complete file and educational plans were processed accurately and efficiently.  Thank you to all teams, including Reg, GDC and SFS for doing such a great job!


We processed six petitions on site, thanks to the petitions committee, we were able to quickly review and make appropriate recommendations, thank you to Denise and Shondra for helping us take care of that! The outreach team did a fantastic job with the new setup arrangements, which made the experience for students even better than before! 


Unfortunately, we were not able to track the referral source of every student that attended, however, those that were surveyed, reported they heard about EE from a community college visit, family/friend, a staff event, or a social media advertisement. Thank you to our marketing and recruitment teams who worked hard to get the word out!  These EE events require long hours and many hands in order to be successful, thank you to everyone who was here to be a part of that!


We have several EE events lined up in the south valley, we look forward to seeing you all again!
