Positive Fall 2007 numbers for TAMU-C


Scott Harvey

– Enrollment and graduation figures were a big item of discussion at last weeks Spring Faculty Meeting at Texas A&M University-Commerce. The University family continued to grow last semester with enrollment eclipsing the 9,000 student mark for the first time in several years. Graduation numbers were also up for the fall, with 964 graduates, nearly 130 more students than the previous year.

The Honors College at A&M-Commerce also saw positive results from their students during the fall. Honor students showed a 95% retention rate in the fall, which included 7 students with a 4.0 GPA, 27 with a 3.5 or higher, and 16 with a 3.0 or higher. All tuition fees, books, room and board are paid by A&M-Commerce to its Honor Students.
