Abstract/Description: College enrollment rates into institutions of higher education have increased over the last thirty years for Black high school graduates (Insitute of Education Science, 2011). However, there are many college enrollment factors that influence a student's decision to attend a college or university. This study sought to determine the most influential college enrollment factors that affect the decision of Black undergraduates to enroll at FSU. Specifically, the study analyzed the role that the Center of Academic Retention and Enhancement, a summer bridge program at the Florida State University, plays in the enrollment of Black undergraduate students. A survey questionnaire was developed and distributed to Black undergraduate students at Florida State University that asked questions concerning the importance of various college enrollment factors. The study found that "Financial Aid: Scholarships and Grants" was the most important college enrollment factor. The C.A.R.E Program was also influential in the decision of the majority of C.A.R.E students to attend FSU. Based off of the findings from the survey, it is evident that the C.A.R.E Program is a vital instrument in the recruitment of Black undergraduate students to FSU and to the academic success of those students throughout their college career.
