Freshman intent to register data - Fall 2001

Each year, students admitted as freshmen to the University of California for the upcoming fall are required to file a statement of intent to register (SIR) by May 1.

The SIR data for all domestic students admitted as freshmen for fall 2001 are now available at: Table 1 (pdf),Table 2 (pdf). In brief summary, the figures show:

  • Systemwide, SIRs increased 7 percent for fall 2001. This year, 31,018 students have filed a statement of intent to register, compared to 29,004 at the same point last year.

  • For underrepresented minorities, the increase was 11 percent, from 4,730 for fall 2000 to 5,262 for fall 2001.

  • As a proportion of the class filing SIRs, underrepresented minorities increased from 16.3 percent of the fall 2000 class to 17 percent of the fall 2001 class.

  • All campuses saw increases in the number of underrepresented minority students filing SIRs for fall 2001, led by a 37 percent increase at UC Irvine.

The counts for UC Riverside and UC Santa Cruz include freshmen who were referred to those campuses because they were UC-eligible but were not accommodated elsewhere in the system. The admit/SIR rate of the freshmen that applied directly to these campuses - not including the referral pool - is 23.9 percent for UC Riverside and 20.3 percent for UC Santa Cruz, significantly higher than the figures shown in these tables.

NOTE: These figures reflect all domestic students, both California and out-of-state residents. Fall 2001 figures are from the 5/23/01 management report, and fall 2000 figures are from the 5/24/00 management report. These figures may differ slightly from campus data reported as of any other dates.
