Enrollment sets spring record


Spring enrollment has set a record for the Lawrence campus, exceeding 25,000 for the first time, and leads gains among all Kansas Board of Regents universities.

KU is the largest university in the regents system, enrolling more Kansas residents than any other university in the state. KU reported the largest increase in total student enrollment and Kansas resident enrollment in the state among regents institutions.

One out of every three students enrolled at a Kansas regents institution attends KU.

Total university enrollment at KU topped 27,000 for the first time since 1994, falling just shy of the record set in 1993.

According to figures released by the Kansas Board of Regents, 27,463 students are enrolled at KU’s Lawrence and Kansas City campuses, an increase of 569, or 2 percent, over spring 2002. KU’s spring enrollment has increased every year since 1997, when 25,755 were enrolled.

In Lawrence, 25,156 students are enrolled this spring, an increase of 437, or 1.8 percent, over spring 2002. Lawrence campus totals include enrollment at the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park as well as at the Public Management Center (formerly the Capitol Complex) in Topeka.

At the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., spring enrollment is at 2,307, up 132, or 6 percent, over spring 2002.

The Kansas Board of Regents reported a systemwide increase of 1,684, or 2.1 percent.
