Texas A&M University’s fall enrollment has climbed to 69,465 students — a 98-person increase since last year.
Numbers include students in campuses at College Station, Galveston and Doha, Qatar. At the main campus in College Station alone, there was a 174-student increase from last year, putting enrollment at 64,300.
The increase in total enrollment comes after announcements in January from university officials that freshman enrollment would decrease this fall.
The fall enrollment means A&M remains the largest university in Texas.
Enrollment is determined based on the 20th class day, since those numbers are reported to the legislature and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, according to a press release.
