Transcript The UH has seen a hike in enrollement by an estimated of 2,000 students in a semester, from 36,000 students in the fall 2010, to 38,000 in the Spring 2011. Angelica Dominguez 38,752 AND GROWING University officials expect enrollment numbers to increase By Jose Aguilar The University experienced a record-setting year in terms of enrollment, but whether or not that growth would continue into the future was not easily predictable considering the looming budget cuts in state funding. Total enrollment for Fall 2010 was 38,752. The total for the Spring semester had yet to be certified, but officials gave preliminary numbers of more than 37,300. According to the UH Office of Admissions the number of new applications for Fall 2011 and the large increase in Spring 2011, indicate the Fall 2011 semester will be another one for the record book. "The University of Houston is becoming the university of choice for many more prospective students from throughout the state, region, and even internationally, so under normal circumstance, we could top the 40,000 mark this Fall," Executive director of the Office of Admissions Djuana Young said. However, Young said, many factors over which the University has little or no control of will come into play during the coming weeks and months, and could negatively impact enrollment at UH and throughout the state. "For instance, if state and federal aid cuts are as extensive as projected, many students may not be financially able to attend UH or any other institution for that matter," Young said. "We hope this doesn't happen, but if it does we want our students to know that we are committed to their success as a student and will do everything we can to provide them the resources they need to continue their enrollment." There have been many times where UH's enrollment has increased, but what makes this one exciting, Young said, is that UH is seeing an increase after a few years of decreases in enrollments. Enrollment increases are always viewed as a positive measure, Young said, simply because it indicates that there is greater interest in the University's quality academic programs and the collegiate experience. "For the University of Houston, increased enrollment also produces a more diverse student population, a higher percentage of well-prepared students which will ultimately help to improve our retention and graduate rates, and of course, more tuition revenue," Young said. Enrollment increases also bring challenges to the University, including parking, classroom and lab space, on-campus housing and food services, and, in general, continuing to provide quality services to more students and faculty. "These are all good problems to have," Young said. "As the newest Carnegie designated Tier One institution continues to attract more and better students, we will continue to find more and better ways to serve them." Although officials expect moderate overall increases to continue over the next several years, the majority of those increases will be primarily in graduate and professional programs. The percentage of enrollment for graduate students is expected to increase from about 24 percent of UH's total enrollment to 30 percent during the next 5-10 years. "As usual, long-term goals are subject to change as factors and circumstances in the state and the nation shift, but in any event, the University of Houston's future and the future of the students who enroll here is very bright," Young said.
