“Student success is the reason we are here,” UT President Sharon L. Gaber said. “All of us at the University, from the academic colleges to the student affairs staff, are focused on supporting our students in and out of the classroom. I am proud those efforts are having a positive impact on our retention rates and will be reflected in our graduation rates in the future.”

Included in the spring enrollment are 14,860 undergraduate students and 4,376 graduate and professional students. There were 14,858 undergraduates and 4,363 graduate and professional students enrolled in spring 2017.
