“The university’s enrollment growth is a clear indicator that the campus community is doing something right, and it is a credit to those who work directly to ensure that UNA is the top choice for students in the region,” UNA President Ken Kitts said. “I am extremely pleased that we continue to see such significant gains, most notably among our online graduate student population.”

There is a total of 5,309 undergraduate students and 2,293 graduate students enrolled.

“Enrollment indicators for the foreseeable future are positive and robust for UNA,” he said. “Even as so many others colleges and universities are struggling in these areas as a result of the pandemic, UNA continues to thrive.”
