Posted September 5, 2008 | Atlanta, GA
Georgia Tech's total undergraduate and graduate enrollment has topped 19,400 for the first time. Approximately, 13,000 undergraduates and more than 6,400 graduate students are enrolled for the fall semester.
Approximately 2,600 new freshmen are enrolled. This is comprised of 250 who started in the summer and more than 2,350 who started in the fall.
There are another 600 students who are not enrolled in classes this fall, but are participating in a co-op or internship program this semester and are not included in the enrollment figures.
Tech's official occupancy for the fall semester won't be final until mid-October when drops and cancellations have been accounted for.
Georgia Tech also has its largest housing occupancy ever this fall. More than 7,800 single students signed up for housing, and approximately 400 enrolled in family housing.
Hefner residence hall was reopened this fall after completing renovations, but two others (Harrison and Howell) remain closed as they undergo renovations.
