A significant increase in undergraduate students has boosted UNCG’s 2015 spring semester enrollment compared to spring semester 2014.

Undergraduate enrollment increased by 534 students to 13,913 — a 4 percent boost over last year. Total enrollment for the semester is 17,764 students compared with 16,955 students the previous year, an increase of 4.8 percent. Transfer students increased by 3.1 percent, and retention of first-year undergraduate students from the fall semester increased. Graduate enrollment remained the same year over year.

“The enrollment gains for undergraduate and transfer students proves UNCG is increasingly a destination for students looking to begin or continue their college careers,” said UNCG Chancellor Linda P. Brady.

“The enrollment growth is a testament to the great work of our faculty and staff, who are committed to recruiting top-notch students, and providing challenging and supportive academic programs for them during their time at UNCG.”

Spring enrollment numbers are expected to go before UNC General Administration for final approval in March.
