ASU Reports Increased Spring Enrollment, Students Taking More Classes
Angelo State University reported a slight increase in enrollment this spring over last spring but the 5,670 total was large enough to become the 10th highest spring enrollment in university history.
The spring enrollment figures also reflect that ASU students on average are taking more classes this spring than any spring semester since 1990 and the third highest number of spring classes in school history. This is based on the full time equivalent (FTE) figures which project what enrollment would be if all students were taking a full class load. For the spring of 2002 ASU had an FTE enrollment of 4,638, exceeded only by the 1990 spring figure of 4,686 and the 1989 spring figure of 4,673.
This spring's actual enrollment total was up three from the 5,667 students enrolled in classes in the spring of 2001. The total number of semester credit hours taken by ASU students also rose to 69,978 compared with 69,819 last spring, a difference of 159 semester credit hours.
The total enrollees by college or school this spring compared to spring 2001 were: College of Business and Professional Studies, 1,772, 1791; College of Liberal and Fine Arts, 1,313, 1,304; College of Sciences, 1,532, 1,512; School of education, 621, 615; and Graduate School, 432, 445.
