Thompson Rivers University spans three campuses and offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. Enrolment projections are produced for all campuses several times a year using different modelling strategies and incorporating consultation with stakeholders. Over the past decade, the projections process has evolved from a simple model of accepted applications to student headcounts by program and enrolments by course. Here, we provide an overview of the individual models and the process of incorporating stakeholder feedback. We describe how the projections are used for institutional planning at TRU, and how their next evolution can contribute to an enrolment planning framework.
