Nucleation fluxes and numbers of nuclei are evaluated as functions of time and the quench rate, [Formula Presented] using asymptotic technique. In contrast to predictions of conventional (adiabatic) nucleation descriptions with the number of quenched-in nuclei scaling as [Formula Presented] a different scaling [Formula Presented] is observed with nonuniversal, model-dependent values of [Formula Presented].
