UALR reports a rise in enrollment, helped by first-time students

Posted By on Tue, Sep 1, 2015 at 11:49 AM

UALR says enrollment is up this fall by 1.2 percent, thanks to a 19 percent increase in first-time college students.

The 11th day count of 11,848 students includes 1,493 high school students concurrently enrolled at UALR while completing high school work. Some of these are advanced placement courses.

The school's release:



 
A robust recruitment season during the past year has resulted in a 19 percent increase in first-time college students and a 1.2 percent increase in overall student enrollment at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

The 11th day enrollment count at UALR is 11,848 students. In addition to the growth in first-time college students, 7.1 percent more first-time transfer students and 4.1 percent more graduate students are enrolled at UALR compared with last fall’s enrollment.

Students living on campus at UALR increased by a total of 8 percent compared to last year, representing a 97 percent occupancy rate in student housing.

"The growth in students living on campus reflects a better understanding among students and families that UALR offers a residential programming model based on individualized attention to every student and aimed at enhancing the student's academic experience, in addition to outstanding facilities," said Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Zulma Toro.

In addition to its already successful online degree programs, UALR recently established an honors college for which freshmen, continuing, and transfer students are eligible. UALR also provides in-state tuition for military students, regardless of class format or residence.

The fall 2015 11th day enrollment includes 1,493 concurrent students who are dually enrolled in college classes while completing their high school work. Some of these concurrent classes also are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
