Highest 2009 enrollment growth seen at ASU’s downtown Phoenix campus

[Source: Arizona State University] — Enrollment at ASU this fall has reached a record 68,064 students, a thousand more than last year’s 67,082.  ASU’s enrollment has grown by nearly 13,000 students since 2002, when it adopted the mission of becoming a high-quality, high-access university.

  • The Downtown Phoenix campus grew to 11,503 students in its fourth year.  Last year there were 8,431 enrolled. (26.7%)
  • Enrollment at the West campus grew to 10,380 from 9,572 last year. (7.8%)
  • At the Tempe campus, 55,552 students are enrolled, increasing over last year’s 52,734. (5.1%)
  • Enrollment at the Polytechnic campus in Mesa is 9,146, down from last year’s 9,614. (-5.1%)

More students are attending ASU full-time, almost five percent more than last year.  Of the total enrollment, 13,787 are graduate students.  The number of ethnic minority students increased more than seven percent, from 17,334 to 18,600.  The proportion of ethnic minority students among first-time freshmen increased from 31.5% to 34.2%.

Campus enrollment figures total more than the overall unduplicated count of 68,064, as ASU students take advantage of the courses that are offered by departments throughout the university, not just at the campus that is the academic home of the student.
