This thesis applies current computer science technology to the simulation of student behavior, called Student Flow, in higher education. Data Flow Diagrams were modified for Student Flow analysis and used to help select parameters relevant to the simulation. A longitudinal database of enrollment activity was retrieved and analyzed to generate simulation statistics. The simulation was implemented using an electronic spreadsheet. The model thus developed was then used to project future student enrollments.
