TWU enrollment continues to grow


DENTON – Texas Woman’s University’s fall 2005 enrollment has reached an all-time record of 11,258 students. This 4.7 percent increase continues four consecutive years of enrollment growth at TWU.

Most important, TWU’s total semester credit hours are up 4.6 percent from 104,642 last fall to 109,505 hours — also a record. Student credit hours, not headcount, determine the university’s state funding. All numbers are based on 12th class day data.

The previous enrollment record of 10,750 was set in fall 2004.

“Our continued enrollment growth is due to the diligent efforts of faculty and staff as they implement the university’s strategic enrollment plan,” said TWU Chancellor and President Dr. Ann Stuart. “Four consecutive years of increasing enrollment is no small accomplishment, and I congratulate everyone for their hard work.”

Expanded programs, admissions outreach efforts, improved processing of applications, enhanced marketing efforts and closer ties with high schools and community colleges are elements of the strategic enrollment plan led by Dr. Stuart.

Enrollment at the Denton campus is 9,100 students, up from 8,463 in fall 2004. Enrollment at the Dallas centers is 912 students and Houston center enrollment is 1,246.

“Consistently increasing our enrollment is a positive indicator of the excellence of the academic programs at TWU,” said Dr. Carolyn Gunning, interim provost. “It’s exciting to continue to see growth at TWU, particularly with our undergraduate students.”

Undergraduate enrollment increased to 6,214 students, a 6.7 percent increase from 5,826 in fall 2004. Graduate enrollment grew to 5,041 from 4,924 in fall 2004.

Twelfth-day preliminary enrollment data is issued by TWU’s Office of Institutional Research. Official enrollment figures will be available in December after approval by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
