Growth in transfer student and international student populations from fall 2011 continued into spring 2012, University of Toledo officials announced today, following the official 15-day enrollment reporting date, which was the end of business Monday, Jan. 23.

With a total spring headcount of 20,673, enrollment grew 5.8 percent among transfer students and 58 percent among international students, increasing from 50 new students in 2011 to 79 in 2012. Overall enrollment in spring 2011 was 21,122.

Undergraduate student populations from 2005 to 2010 grew more than 10 percent, data compiled by the UT Office of Institutional Research shows.

Pointing to this semester’s international student population, UT Vice President for External Affairs Lawrence J. Burns said the entire group’s grade point average is 3.2 and those coming to UT direct from high school averaged 3.5.

“Recruitment is a university-wide effort, and I want to thank the hundreds of faculty, staff and current students who have helped prospective students recognize UT as the place to attain their educational goals,” Burns said.
