With the school on academic probation, enrollment projections were modest: 500 freshmen, fewer than half the number who arrived just three years ago.

As of Wednesday, freshman enrollment stood at 484, the school reported. Total enrollment: 5,088. Official figures won’t be validated until mid-October.

NSU was placed on probation by its accrediting agency in December for mostly administrative problems – a status that has dampened enrollment.
