Feb 21, 2012

COMMERCE - Texas A&M University-Commerce is reporting another increase in enrollment for the spring semester, marking an all time high for this time of year. 

The 10,965 students is a 2.94 percent bump in last spring’s numbers, and a 22 percent increase since 2009.

In addition to the increased headcount in classes, more students are taking higher numbers of credit hours, raising the percentage by 6.12 percent for the university.

“I am very pleased with the efforts of our Texas A&M University-Commerce team,” said Dr. Mary Hendrix, vice-president for student access and success. “Despite the new state regulations for documentation of the bacterial meningitis vaccination for new students and these difficult economic times, our team focused on each individual student to achieve these results.”
