The University of Tampa has set another enrollment record in the institution’s 20th consecutive year of topping the previous year’s enrollment.

The new enrollment is 8,310 students -- graduates and undergraduates -- up 3.4 percent from last year.

“Interest in UT set an all-time record this past year, due in large part to our increased reputation for delivering a high-quality, rich educational experience,” University of Tampa Vice President of Enrollment Dennis Nostrand said. “Plus, once undergraduates decide to attend UT, we do an excellent job of graduating them in four years or less.”

Nostrand also emphasized the university’s record enrollment is evident of its rising appeal to prospective students.

University of Tampa President Ronald Vaughn said the personal attention and community feel of the university has been successfully maintained. Both, according to Vaughn, have been important characteristics of the university throughout its 85 years.

“We remain committed to pursuing quality and educational excellence,” he said. “We hired about three dozen faculty and additional staff for this year. We also completed new facilities to support and continue improving the total educational experience.”
