ASU Records Record Enrollment

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Chancellor Robert Potts has announced a record enrollment at Arkansas State University's main campus in Jonesboro.  The headcount on the eleventh class day was 11,551, a 6.3 percent increase over last year.  The previous record enrollment of 11,171 occured in 1992.

The total unduplicated headcount of 11,551 was in increase of 682 compared to last fall's total unduplicated headcount of 10,869.  Total first-time freshmen student count is at 1,891 this year, up 158 from last fall's count of 1,733.  The previous record enrollment of 1,867 for a freshman class was set in 1983.

"I am delighted that Arkansas State University-Jonesboro is clearly a first-choice higher education destination, not only for many more Arkansas students, but for increasing numbers of students from around the world," said Potts.  "I would like to commend the outstanding work of our Office of Admissions, our Office of International Programs, our faculty, and all others across campus who collaborated to achieve these record numbers.  This is a banner day for ASU-Jonesboro."
