COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Preliminary 20th class day data for the spring semester shows that enrollment at universities within The Texas A&M University System rose to a record 113,836 students, an increase of 4.6 percent from spring 2010. Texas A&M University-San Antonio had the largest increase among A&M System members at 23.2 percent, bringing total enrollment at the two-year-old institution to 3,163.
“With 11 universities located across the state, we like to say that ‘We have Texas covered,’” said Michael D. McKinney, chancellor of the A&M System. “Though we continue to operate in a tough economic climate, our universities provide a tremendous value for our students and offer some of the lowest tuition rates in the state.
“It is particularly exciting to witness the growth at our San Antonio campus, which I believe one day will grow to become one of our largest campuses as it continues to serve the people of South Texas.”
Regional universities across the A&M System continue to attract growing numbers of students. Texas A&M University-Commerce’s spring enrollment grew 12.4 percent; Texas A&M University-Texarkana, 9.7 percent; Texas A&M University at Galveston, 12.3 percent; and Tarleton State University, 8.5 percent.
Enrollment at the system’s flagship campus, Texas A&M University in College Station, stood at 46,423, an increase of 1.2% over the previous year.
The final enrollment numbers will be certified in late spring by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
