Newman University officials Tuesday said slight increases have resulted in record-high fall enrollment for the university.
According to the official federal enrollment report following the 20th day of fall classes, 3,108 students are enrolled for the fall 2012 semester compared to last year's 3,021, an increase of 2.8 percent.
This is the fourth year in a row Newman has experienced record-breaking enrollment.
The fall 2011 overall enrollment of 3,021 represented a 9 percent increase over the 2,746 students in the fall 2010 semester, and a two-year increase of 15 percent over the 2,557 students in fall 2009.
The number of undergraduate students again showed gains in both headcount and credit hours.
A total of 1,396 undergraduates enrolled for the fall 2012 semester, a 2 percent increase over the 1,369 in fall 2011.
Full-time equivalency (FTE) for undergraduates is up 5 percent over last year with 1,522.07 compared to 1,447.87 last year.
