JONESBORO, AR - Preliminary and unofficial spring semester enrollment numbers for Arkansas State University in Jonesboro show a significant increase compared to a year ago, university officials said today.

Other important enrollment measures also reveal important positive trends for ASU, according to Dr. Rick Stripling, vice chancellor for student affairs.

The headcount for all instructional sites associated with ASU-Jonesboro is 9,873, an increase of 82 students from last spring, and the second highest spring enrollment figures during the past ten years.

Perhaps even more significant is the full-time equivalent enrollment, which jumped by 146, or about two percent, to 7,872.
