Record 34,000 enroll at UT Arlington for Spring semester
UT Arlington enrollment for the Spring 2014 semester has climbed to a record 34,249 students, buoyed by strong growth in the College of Engineering and sustained demand for College of Nursing programs, preliminary reports show.
The University’s total enrollment including students who are enrolled online but who live outside the state of Texas is nearly 38,000. Enrollment will continue to increase throughout the spring as new sections of popular online nursing and education programs begin.
The strong enrollment report follows UT Arlington’s 2013 ranking by The Chronicle of Higher Education as the nation’s seventh fastest-growing public research university. Total research expenditures climbed to $77.7 million in 2013, fueled by more than $25 million in engineering research and $16.4 million in science research.
