Strategic Enrollment Management

Strategic Enrollment Management manages comprehensive planning and resource alignment processes aimed at increasing student success by identifying barriers and improving operations, promoting university-wide dialogue and collaboration and enhancing growth and revenue, while serving stakeholders and fulfilling the mission, vision, core values, and goals of the university.

The division of SEM includes the departments of Admissions, Educational Partnerships and Outreach, Financial Aid, Retention, and The ROCK. Collectively, these five departments align the services and support that cover the entire enrollment spectrum at Oregon Tech.

SEM Goals

  • Student enrollment of 7,500 by 2028
  • 85% retention rate
  • Promote academic and programmatic recruitment and outreach 
  • Provide engaging opportunities for students


The primary functions of the Admissions Office are to help prospective students investigate and evaluate Oregon Tech, to manage applications for admission and to assist applicants with the enrollment process. Talk to an Admissions staff member to learn why Oregon Tech students are so successful.

Educational Partnerships and Outreach

The Office of Educational Partnerships and Outreach cultivates and maintains partnerships with area high schools and connects faculties, community colleges, and universities to provide increased educational opportunities and resources for students.

Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office is committed to providing high-quality service to all Oregon Tech students, their families and the community. Our office strives to provide information on a complex topic that enables students to make decisions regarding their educational funding.


The Office of Retention partners with academic and student services to design retention initiatives aimed at increasing student success, persistence amongst students, and graduation rates at Oregon Tech. Our office is committed to helping students achieve their educational goals.


The ROCK provides the foundation of success by helping students transition to college, navigate higher education processes, and integrate into the Oregon Tech community. Our office connects students to the people and resources that will support their education and personal development.
