Enrollment Up at UT for fourth consecutive semester

Enrollment at The University of Toledo rose for the fourth consecutive semester with Spring 2008’s figure of 19,706 a 2.3 percent increase from Spring 2007 across all campuses.

“I think it’s clear the recruitment strategy we’ve developed is working,” said Lawrence J. Burns, vice president for Enrollment Services, Marketing and Communications.

“We’re not just bringing in more students, we’re bringing in better-prepared students, which is integral to our student retention efforts.”

On the Main Campus, UT’s full-time equivalency (FTE) – the figure used to determine UT’s state subsidy – also increased, up 3.2 percent, from 14,904 last year to 15,376 currently. FTE is calculated by taking the total number of course credit hours taken by students divided by 15 and often conveys a more accurate representation of the way enrollment affects UT’s fiscal picture.
Kevin Kucera, associate vice president for enrollment services, pointed to the increase in the number of continuing students as evidence of continuing students as evidence of recruitment and retention efforts. He also highlighted increases in transfer student – up 11 percent – and direct from high school student – up 23.8 percent – populations.
Additionally, the
College of Nursing saw an increase of more than 20 percent – almost 200 students, and the total number of students in the College of Pharmacy increased 6 percent to 1,358.
“I can think of no better evidence of our commitment to our community than the increasing numbers of students who are looking to The University of Toledo to equip them with the knowledge needed for successful careers,” said UT President Lloyd Jacobs.
Burns also added his thanks to the whole division of enrollment services, as well as the recruiters in the individual colleges for UT’s continuing enrollment accomplishments.
“Faculty, staff, alumni and other students all play a key role in generating initial interest in UT and persuading prospective students to join our community once they visit and explore more about the campus,” Burns said.
