Arkansas Tech moves to 3rd on college enrollment list


Dr. Robin E. Bowen, new president of Arkansas Tech University, made Little Rock media rounds today and she had some news to brag about — Tech has risen to 3rd in enrollment among Arkansas colleges and universities, behind only the University of Arkansas and Arkansas State University.

Tech said it has 12,003 students, counting on-line enrollees — with 9,831 at Russellville and 2,172 at the Ozark Campus.

The UA reported 26,237 in a preliminary count. ASU reported 13,135. 

Tech moved ahead of UCA, which reported 11,698 students, and UALR, now at 11,681, down from 12,377 when it ranked No. 3 last year.

The article now reflects editing changes from an earlier post which included full-time equivalent figures as opposed to head count figures for at least a couple of schools. To avoid any confusion, I've reverted to counts given by the universities until final Higher Education Department figures for all are compiled.
