Austin Peay State University Enrollment Numbers – First Day

 

Austin Peay State UniversityThe fall semester at Austin Peay State University began today with student enrollment figures showing signs of significant, increased growth.

On the first day of classes, APSU has 10,539 students enrolled for Fall 2010 – an increase of more than 752 students enrolled on Day 1 in 2009, a 7.7 percent increase – according to figures from the registrar’s office.

This also marks two exceptional milestones for APSU; the main campus opening with more than 9,000 students, and realizing a 14.5 percent increase in freshmen students. As of today, APSU’s main campus has 9,067 students and its Fort Campbell campus 1,472. The freshman class began today with a record 1,754 students, an increase of 222 students when compared to opening day last fall.

Current, yet unofficial, enrollment reflects all students taking courses on the main campus, at the Austin Peay Center at Fort Campbell and at the Renaissance Center in Dickson.

The official fall figures won’t be available until students at the Fort Campbell Center enroll in the Fall II semester. Registration for those courses is from October 20st-22nd, and classes begin October 23rd.

Since APSU President Tim Hall began his tenure in 2007, preliminary figures indicate the University has observed an increase of 1,445 students. Hall has implemented crucial programs to ensure student success, through academic alert systems, advanced advisement procedures and streamlined processes throughout the University. These efforts have resulted in more returning upperclassmen students and increased retention and graduation rates.

APSU’s growth follows a milestone reached in Fall 2009, when the University observed a record enrollment of 10,188 students.
