Texas A&M Provost Reports Preliminary Fall Enrollment Numbers To The Faculty Senate

Through the first five days of classes at Texas A&M, enrollment is up by 751 students to almost 69,400.

Those were among the numbers presented by provost Carol Fierke at Monday’s meeting of the A&M Faculty Senate.

Dr. Fierke also reported the class of freshman and other first year students at 10,772. That’s a decrease of 3.9 percent of last year, but still above the university’s goal of 10,500.

The provost said the goal is to have “measured growth” in the number of first year students in order to catch up with infrastructure needs.

A&M is also looking to increase enrollment in professional masters, online classes, and summer classes, which doesn’t put additional strain on campus buildings.

The enrollment numbers include College Station, Galveston, and A&M’s new campus in McAllen.
