TWU’s spring enrollment a record 13,017 students

2/4/10


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University has set a new record for spring semester enrollment with 13,017 students, up 9.1 percent from last spring.

More importantly, TWU’s total semester credit hours are up 8.7 percent from last spring to 124,383 hours — also a record. Student credit hours, not headcount, determine a university’s state funding. All numbers are based on preliminary 12th class day data.

“I applaud the tireless efforts of faculty and staff in Denton, Dallas and Houston who helped TWU achieve another semester of record growth,” TWU Chancellor Ann Stuart said. “An uncertain job market is leading to careers in stable professions, and this is where TWU succeeds by offering quality programs in health care, education and business.”

Overall enrollment is up at all TWU campuses and in undergraduate and graduate students.

Enrollment at the TWU Dallas Center, which includes both the Parkland and Presbyterian locations, increased 21.2 percent from last spring to 1,284 students.

To accommodate continued growth in Dallas, TWU is building a new $55.5 million TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center, which will combine TWU’s Parkland and Presbyterian sites into a dynamic campus-in-one building at the Parkland location. The new institute is expected to open in 2011.

Denton campus enrollment increased 7.2 percent to 10,462 students, and enrollment at the TWU Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center grew 13.8 percent to 1,271 students for spring 2010.

TWU’s undergraduate enrollment is up 7.3 percent to 7,523 students, and graduate enrollment is up 11.5 percent to 5,488 students.
