Texas Woman’s University Reports Record Enrollments

At a time when many public universities are reporting significant declines in enrollment, Texas Woman’s University reached a record of 15,846 students this fall. This a 2 percent increase from a year ago. The enrollment increase was paced by growth at the institution’s Denton campus, where the headcount rose to 13,353 from 13,013 a year ago. Students of color make up 56 percent of the university’s enrollments.

Graduate student enrollment rose 2.2 percent overall. Graduate students at campuses in Denton, Dallas, and Houston account for more than one-third of TWU’s total enrollment.

The number of first-time-in-college students increased by 4.5 percent from fall 2018 to fall 2019. Those gains were fueled by new students seeking degrees in the arts and sciences, nursing and business.

Despite its name, Texas Woman’s University is a coeducational institution. But according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Education, women make up 86 percent of all undergraduate students.
