Norfolk State’s Freshman Class 500 Smaller Than Expected


This fall’s freshman class at Norfolk State University is even smaller than expected.

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.
