Age

Enrollment statistics at a glance

In the mid-80s to early 90s enrollments of older students provided enrollment growth which was followed by a surge in enrollment by younger students from the early 1990s to 2000. Recently, the numbers of older students have been increasing, at both the graduate and undergraduate level.

During previous 10 years undergraduates age 24 and younger increased three percent, compared to a 40 percent increase in undergraduates age 25 and older.
