Spring enrollment hits record high again in 2007

Tennessee Tech University student enrollment for the Spring 2007 semester again has set an all-time high record. Compared to last year, enrollment in the spring semester increased by 3.3 percent, up 275 students.

The spring enrollment increase follows the news from fall 2006 that TTU's enrollment increased by a higher percentage than any other Tennessee Board of Regents' University.

"We're very excited about the university's enrollment picture for the spring term," said Bobby Hodum, TTU's interim executive director of enrollment management. "When our fall enrollment reached record numbers last semester, we were hopeful that we could continue that trend into the spring term, and it looks like that has happened."

TTU headcount enrollment this semester totals 8,540, compared to 8,265 for the same time last year. Spring enrollment reached record levels in Spring 2005 (8,143) and Spring 2006 (8,265).

"For fall 2006 term, the undergraduate enrollment was 4.3 percent higher than the fall 2005 term," Hodum said.  "When looking at this semester, the undergraduate enrollment for spring 2007 term is 4.7 percent higher than the spring 2006 term.  This is wonderful news, and I believe it's an indication that our recruitment and retention efforts are really paying off."

TTU's College of Education posted the highest increase in enrollment this spring over last spring, followed by the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering.
