STATE UNIVERSITY, Ark. -- According to the reporting guidelines established by the state Department of Higher Education, fall enrollment figures for the fall semester stand at 10,577 students, an increase of 142 students over last year.  The current enrollment figure is an unduplicated headcount for all instructional sites associated with the Jonesboro campus.

The enrollment figure is preliminary, and is a "snapshot" of enrollment taken on the 11th day of classes, known as the state-defined census date.  The eleventh day of classes for ASU-Jonesboro was Tuesday, September 9.

The enrollment figure of 10,577 represents all students taking classes (both full-time and part-time), either on the campus in Jonesboro, or with one of the upper level programs at one of the instructional sites offered through the Jonesboro campus.  It does not include enrollment figures for the ASU campuses in Beebe, Mountain Home, Newport, Marked Tree, Heber Springs and Searcy.
