TWU sees seventh consecutive year of enrollment growth


DENTON — Enrollment at Texas Woman’s University has risen for the seventh consecutive year, according to preliminary 12th class day data, with a record 12,469 students enrolled for fall 2008. This marks a 2.5 percent increase from last fall.

More importantly, this preliminary data indicates that TWU’s total semester credit hours grew 1.9 percent to 122,235 hours, up from 119,956 last fall — also a record. Student credit hours, not headcount, determine the university’s state total funding.

“We are very pleased that our programs continue to attract students who recognize the high quality and outstanding value of a TWU education,” TWU Provost Dr. Kay Clayton said.

Preliminary numbers place TWU’s Hispanic enrollment at 1,825 students, an increase of 5.7 percent from fall 2007. TWU’s Hispanic enrollment increased 83.8 percent from 2002 to 2007, the fourth-highest among public universities in Texas.

U.S. News and World Report magazine ranks TWU second in the state and 15th in the nation among universities with the most diverse student populations.

From 2002-07, TWU’s enrollment grew 36 percent, the fourth-highest enrollment growth percentage among universities in Texas.
