UC’s official total enrollment for the 2019-20 school year comes to a new all-time record of 46,388.
With the official totals released this week, UC also boasts a few other records:
The promising data comes days after U.S. News & World Report ranked UC No. 3 overall for co-op and internships (No. 1 in that same category among public universities).
“I applaud the work of our faculty, staff and students in recruiting and retaining record numbers of UC students,” says UC President Neville Pinto. “The University of Cincinnati continues to grow in enrollment, in line with our mission as a public university and with Ohio’s goal to have 65% of Ohio adults hold a degree or other postsecondary credential by 2025.”
UC's steady enrollment increases run counter to state and national trends. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, overall college enrollment in fall 2019 is expected to be about 5% lower than the peak of 21 million in fall 2010. In contrast, UC's enrollment has increased more than 11% in the last decade.
