Tarleton State University has announced its largest enrollment ever, with more than 13,000 students signed up for fall 2016 classes in Stephenville, Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian and online.
It’s a 6-percent increase over last year and 12-percent growth over two years ago, marking the fifth consecutive year Tarleton has set a record for total enrollment.
Most of the 2,200 freshmen—the largest first-year class in university history—moved in this past weekend to the Stephenville campus for a week of activities.
If enrollment momentum continues through the university’s official start today, Tarleton-Fort Worth could see a 6.5-percent growth with more than 1,800 students; Tarleton-Waco could surpass 1,000, and enrollment at Tarleton-Midlothian is expected to top 300 students.
