Deep Dive Into Data

How many new students enroll at Rhode Island’s public higher education institutions?

The new entries dashboard shows the number of part-time and full-time students entering Rhode Island’s public higher education system in a given year. An increase in new entries over current levels will be the earliest indicator of progress toward the attainment goal.

Data for this indicator are drawn from administrative records in Rhode Island’s public postsecondary data warehouse. Included in new entries are students with no prior enrollment at any of Rhode Island’s public postsecondary institutions, as well as those students who transferred into one of Rhode Island’s public institutions for the first time.
