The University of Texas at El Paso has recorded the highest-ever spring enrollment. The student population for the spring 2018 semester has reached 23,606, a 3.6 percent overall increase compared to the Spring 2017 semester.
The increase is the highest percent increase in a spring semester since 2011.
“We are excited to see continuing enrollment growth at UTEP,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Gary Edens, Ed.D. “Especially encouraging is the 7.2 percent increase among sophomores, which we credit to some of our newest retention efforts, in particular the UTEP Edge.”
The UTEP Edge, a cross-campus culture of student success and empowerment, develops students’ existing assets through high-impact experiences including undergraduate research, civic engagement, study abroad and student employment.
“We are especially thankful to the faculty and staff who work so hard to mentor and support our students and their dream of a university degree,” Edens said.
