Forbes: Fall enrollment numbers for major public universities

University of Cincinnati recognized for enrollment records

Early data on college enrollments for fall 2019 are being tallied, and while many institutions around the country are reporting declining numbers, the University of Cincinnati is on the rise.

Forbes reports a "mixed picture" for major public universities, including positive enrollment news for UC, citing record numbers for total enrollment and first-year students.

UC’s official total enrollment for the 2019-20 school year comes to a new all-time record of 46,388.

Other university records this year include:

  • Record size for a first-year class: 7,805
  • Record number of undergraduates: 35,498
  • Retention numbers are also on the rise, standing at 88.3%, which matches the previous record

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.
