The University of Texas at Arlington continues to set new records in enrollment numbers, reporting a preliminary census count of 39,714 Texas-based students, an increase of 7.3 percent over fall 2015.

Total degree-seeking global enrollment to date has exceeded 45,000 students and is anticipated to surpass 57,000 by the end of this academic year, making UTA potentially the largest campus in The University of Texas System.

Undergraduate enrollment grew by 6.4 percent overall with the Hispanic undergraduate population registering an 11.8 percent increase, emphasizing UTA’s continued success in keeping up with changing demographics in the DFW metroplex, and continuing UTA’s ranking by U.S. News & World Report as fifth among national universities for undergraduate diversity.

UTA President Vistasp Karbhari said, “The continued momentum of our great institution in rankings at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is clear evidence of the tremendous success of our faculty and staff in providing the very best educational experiences to students, ensuring access and the highest levels of excellence at an affordable cost. I am extremely proud of the faculty and staff who are enabling us to not only meet our mission of serving the metroplex, but are also setting new standards of excellence as an institution of first choice for students, as we progress toward being the Model 21st Century Urban Research University.”
