We analyze the pre-enrollment data pertaining to foundation universities in Turkey with the view of identifying factors that may impact the enrolment rate of department programs. The goal is to discover which factors have significant impacts on enrollment rate and then to derive policy implications that lead university administrators to have better strategies for enrollment-related issues. Utilizing a widely used statistical technique, multiple regression, we perform a statistical analysis based on the available data. We provide policy implications at the end of the paper.
