A record number of students have chosen to attend one of the nation’s top universities.
For the third consecutive year, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has achieved record fall enrollment. The total number of students attending UTC this fall is 9,807, which represents a 2.61 percent increase over last year with growth in both undergraduate and graduate students.
The campus also again saw a significant growth in freshman enrollment with 2,083 first-time students. This fall’s freshman class has an average high school grade point average of 3.22 and average ACT score of 22.42, both figures up from last previous years.
“I am pleased that students and their families continue to see the great opportunities available here at UTC,” said UTC Chancellor Roger Brown. “I know that continued growth brings challenges, and I am thankful for the tremendous patience of students and the efforts of faculty and staff for the smooth start to this year.”
