UGA fall semester enrollment tops 33,000

A total of 33,831 students enrolled at UGA for fall semester, a slight decline from last year but still the third-highest enrollment in university history.

The total includes 32,757 students at UGA’s Athens campus and 883 students at the university’s extended campuses in Gwinnett County, Griffin, Tifton and at the Terry College Executive Education Center in Atlanta. It also includes 191 students enrolled in independent study programs.

This fall’s total is 128 fewer students (0.4 percent) than last fall’s record of 33,959. It is 47 below the second-highest enrollment of 33,878, recorded in 2003.

Of the total 33,831 enrollment 7,773 students had never attended UGA before, including 4,302 first-time freshmen who enrolled this fall. Combined with 302 first-time freshmen who enrolled this summer, the total count of first-time freshmen for the summer and fall is 4,604.
