In India, universities often study the broad characteristics of students who migrate to their state for educational purposes. This provides them with opportunities to collaborate with the state government in order to introduce education policies that can influence future students’ migration decisions. While studies already exist that focus on the determinants of student migration, this paper uses the logistic regression model to assess the probability of choice of private universities while using primary data collected from students who migrated to Karnataka. This paper also reports on tests of various hypotheses and on the finding that the admission quota has no significant effect on migrant students’ choice to enroll at a private university.
