University System Enrolls Almost 315,000 Students this Fall

The University System of Georgia reports its 35 colleges and universities enrolled a total of 314,367 students for the fall 2012 semester. This is a decrease of 1.2 percent (3,662) students from the fall 2011 enrollment of 318,027.

The enrollment numbers were released in the System’s “Fall 2012 Semester Enrollment Report,” which breaks down enrollment by institution, class (freshman, sophomore, etc.), race and ethnicity, in-state, out of state and foreign students, as well as gender and age.

“As we have noted earlier, this small decline in enrollment was not unexpected and we have worked in recent months with the institutions to prepare for such a shift,” said University System Chancellor Hank Huckaby.

Indeed, a look at enrollment since fall 2008 indicates that following a 6.7 percent increase from fall 2008 to fall 2009, the increase slowed to 3.2 percent from fall 2009 to fall 2010 and was up 2.1 percent from fall 2010 to fall 2011.
