The present paper approaches an important component of university management, which is represented by university admission. Starting from the number of places provided for the entrance examination in the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and the extent to which they were occupied in the interval 2005-2010, prognoses regarding the number of candidates for the year 2011 were developed, using specific methods belonging to the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. The study refers only to the bachelor level admission for the entire university. The results of the prognoses were validated by comparison with the data collected for the entry in September 2011.
