A news release sent Tuesday said 5,875 students are enrolled for the fall semester and the university's overall population is approaching 40,000, but the total student population remained relatively flat compared with last school year at 38,694.
This is the largest freshman class ever to enroll at Texas State, according to the news release.
“Texas State continues to attract quality students and expand its academic programs to support the economic well-being of Texas,” Texas State President Denise M. Trauth said. “As the university evolves, we expect that graduate education and research will have a growing presence at Texas State.”
The College of Science and Engineering is the university's largest college this year, reporting an all-time-high enrollment of 6,542 students, a 4.6 percent increase from last fall.
Ingram Hall, the university's largest academic building that is slated to be part of the college, is scheduled for completion in summer 2018.
